‘Sine’ of Success for Doncaster Business

Doncaster Business GreenFayre was awarded the Sine FM ‘Simply Fred’ BizJuice Award recently introduced by the ‘Simply Fred’ show. The award aims to reward and recognise entrepreneurship in Doncaster and raise the profile of local businesses.

Peter Davies, Mayor of Doncaster, said: “The entrepreneurial spirit is strong in Doncaster with many successful and inspiring businesses based here.  To stand out amongst outstanding company is an achievement indeed and I’d like to congratulate GreenFayre Gifts & Homewares on winning this Award.”

The BizJuice Award was launched earlier this year to give Doncaster businesses the opportunity to showcase their achievements and allow the general public to vote for the best business. As well as taking home a winner’s certificate, GreenFayre has won a 6-week advertising campaign on Sine FM.

Chrissy Moog, Media Services Manager at Sine FM, said: “We exist for the benefit of the Doncaster community and were therefore delighted to support the ‘Simply Fred’ BizJuice Award by offering a free advertising campaign to the winning business. It’s exciting to see such a thriving business community in Doncaster at a time when there’s been such an air of doom and gloom about the economy for such a long time.”

Julie Poland, who co-owns GreenFayre with her husband Ian, said: “We are so pleased to have won this Award for our business. We would like to thank our fab customers for their loyalty and their recognition in voting for us! Doncaster is a fantastic town with great renewed spirit and, it’s brilliant to be showcasing something new and refreshing in our village of Rossington.”

GreenFayre was born out of Julie and Ian’s frustration at the lack of inspiration and affordable gifts on the ‘High Street’. They decided to look further afield and promptly fell in love with some beautiful products that they wanted to share. They began with a stock order of under £200 and an ‘Open Day’ at home in July 2011, then swiftly expanded to open their ‘Bricks & Mortar’ shop in the heart of Rossington less than a year later, in April this year. Their motto: ‘Fair Trade, Handcrafted, Recycled & Battery Free!’

Sine FM Presenters are volunteers; they choose their own show content according to their passions and interests and this gives Sine FM a great variety of shows to broadcast to the Doncaster community and beyond. The Simply Fred show airs live every Friday from 10am to 12noon on 102.6FM in Doncaster.
