Holly Watson wins top national award

April 18, 2011.

Our heart-felt congratulations to Holly Watson, who has won the Rotary Young Citizen of the Year award at a ceremony in Dublin, broadcast live on the BBC News Channel last weekend. 'I was so nervous,' said Holly. 'It was quite an honour.'

Holly came to our attention for her tireless anti-knife campaigning since her brother was fatally stabbed in 2009. After meeting her in person, the studio built a website to support the campaign (www.idontcarryaknife.org) and since then, Holly's work has rarely been out of the public's attention. Over 2,000 knives have been deposited in 6 knife amnesty bins across the county as part of Holly's 'Bin a Blade' campaign and, more recently, we've been working with Holly on a wristband initiative, aimed at changing attitudes to knife carrying amongst young people. Holly's award is well-deserved and we're very proud to be associated with such an inspirational campaigner. Well done, Holly!

What Our Clients Say
We knew straight away that we wanted Mackman to be the brand agency to work with us on our project. We were given a real sense of confidence that they would do a great job and we were not proved wrong. We look forward to ‘growing together’ over years to come.
