Hotel Football & Café Football Old Trafford Manchester Review

Hotel Football & Café Football Old Trafford Manchester Review: February 2018

Manchester United’s super star players, full back Gary Neville and retired winger Ryan Giggs, continue their play of the pitch and have teamed together to launch the football themed GG hospitality brand which encompasses the Hotel & Café Football brands.

Located smack bang opposite Old Trafford Stadium, the football themed hotel and café are looking to score winning goals and become a champion place for guests to play and stay.

I loved the ladies on reception enthusiastic, energetic and excited to pass on their passion for the place. Our game began heading on up all the way up to the dizzy heights of the eighth floor to executive room 801.  Back of the net…Gooooooooal – what a winning view – Breath-taking brilliance!

The well-appointed executive room was roomy, with a funky brightly coloured seating hub, with flat screen television, ideal to kick back, chill and catch up on some sports action.  The welcome card and cute chocolate footballs are a nice touch.

Stand 4 Socks Review

Stand 4 Socks Review: November 2017

The Manchester, UK based Stand 4 Socks Founder Josh wanted to make a difference and back in 2015 he said, “What if socks could change the world?” A large percentage of the population wear socks and if each pair bought had a positive impact so, “why can’t socks change the world?”  Now, the Stand 4 Socks brand proudly supports 12 global causes in 9 countries and currently support 11 out of the 17 United Nations Global goals for sustainable development.

Their super sock technology means that each pair have been uniquely designed, are tested for harmful substances to Oeko-Tex Standard 100, ethically sourced via a Sedex audited supply chain which is one of the world’s leading platforms that supports business to manage their performance around health & safety, labour rights, business ethics and the environment, have a seamless toe closure, a reinforced heel & toe and Y-tech technology which means that the sock will cup around your heel naturally meaning these are lightweight, breathable and are a super cosy and comfortable wear.

Warm feet and a warm heart, tis the season of goodwill, so why not combine the pleasure of gift giving with a charitable benefit.  Well, you can do just that, as Stand 4 Socks are award winning socks which clearly have impact.

Water a fundamental human need and a resource often taken for granted, but for many safe drinking water is scarce and difficult to access.  Buy these Active Lightweight Black Water Sports Socks made with their twisted cotton design, in collaboration with Water.org, this pair helps to provide 1 year’s safe water for a household in a developing country.  Also, this will support United Nations Global Goal 6 “Clean Water & Sanitation”.

Environmental concerns continue to grow but can be overlooked in an increasingly consumerist driven society.  Buy these Stripe Navy Green Bamboo Socks made with their 100% biodegradable Bamboo technology, that supports United Nations Global Goal 13 “Climate Action”, and each pair helps to plant 10 trees on a degraded land.  Providing both more trees for the planet as well as refreshed soil for farmers in developing countries.  

Comfort, happiness and more importantly all for a good cause – what a  pair of super socks!

Merry Christmas and thank you for reading 😊
