MORTONS EMPLOYEES RAISE FUNDS FOR CHARITY

November 21 2014.

Three years ago, Mortons Media employees Malcolm Wheeler and Nikita Leak introduced ‘Purple Day’ to their workplace to raise funds for the Lymphoma Association. Both were personally motivated; Wheeler is in remission with lymphoma, and Leak’s father died from the condition. Each purple day, participants come to work adorned with as much purple as possible.


So far this year, the initiative has raised £1,125. Mortons CEO Ian Fisher helped by pledging £5 for each employee wearing something purple, and with over 100 people getting involved, it has cost him £500 and counting.

As part of the fundraising, a contest was run amongst employees to be “as purple as you dare”. The...

INFLATION SET TO FALL FURTHER DESPITE SLIGHT RISE IN OCTOBER

November 18 2014.

- Annual CPI inflation in October 2014 was 1.3%, up from 1.2% in September

- Goods price inflation in October 2014 was 0.3%, while services inflation was 2.5%

- Food and motor fuel prices, which have historically contributed to the rise in annual inflation, are putting downward pressure on inflation


Commenting on the CPI inflation figures for October 2014, published today by the ONS, David Kern, Chief Economist at the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) said: “Although inflation edged up slightly in October, the impact of low oil prices will have a noticeable [stop]impact in coming months, causing inflation to drop. We expect inflation to fluctuate around 1.0% until late 2015, before rising towards 2.0% in 2016.

“Businesses will be pleased by last week’s inflation report which indicated that interest rate increases are unlikely to be on the agenda until mid-2015. With this uncertainty out of the way, the MPC and the government must focus on implementing measures that boost business confidence and investment.”
