Raring2go! helping to keep your children occupied
As the Raring2go! franchise so rightly points out it is often extremely difficult for parents to find out what’s on and where to go with their children in their local area. Raring2go! has the answer to this problem: a magazine full of information about local events and services for kids aged 0-9, as well as seasonal articles and features. The A5 quarterly magazine is now published in over 100 towns and areas across Britain with new places, the company says, being added to the list on a weekly basis.
According to the information provided, the magazine contains a mix of adverts, offers and competitions plus editorial feature content. Each Raring2go! magazine is compiled locally and is delivered free to parents or carers through school book bags etc, and distributed through meeting points such as libraries, nurseries, play groups, leisure centres, play centres and doctors surgeries.
The people who produce Raring2go! are local mums and dads who really understand the benefits of the magazine and website from a parent’s perspective as well as the value they offer the local community as a whole – from small businesses to schools, community centres and village fetes who want to promote themselves to local families, who in turn want to use local and stay local.
The original idea was thought up by Sally Frost, herself a mum of two, and was then developed as a franchise business by Sue Botterill, the stay-at-home mum of four, who is behind the multimillion award-winning businesses, Mymag and thebestof.co.uk. (kbp)
