Radio station MKFM will officially launch #LoveMK Day from 7.30am l and to celebrate local company Niftylift Worldwide took MK Breakfast Show presenter Oliver Dean up high to get one heck of a view overlooking the city.
Clutching his #LoveMK Day poster Oliver pictured was taken up to over 20 metres at the company’s new headquarters in Shenley Wood and took in the spectacular views of the cityscape, while having a few photos taken and even taking a phone call while he was up there.
The aim of #LoveMK Day is not only to promote Milton Keynes as a leisure and business destination but also to harness the pride that many people have in their city.
The visitor economy is worth over £200 million to the area and by encouraging the Milton Keynes community to get involved in promoting their own city, it could increase the wider benefits even further.
Oliver said: “MKFM can’t wait to officially launch #LoveMK Day on the MK Breakfast Show. We’ll definitely be having some fun and doing a few challenges, so get involved and remember to use that hashtag!”
Niftylift Worldwide marketing executive Jess Bowden said: “Niftylift have been located in Milton Keynes for 25 years and we are very proud to support #LoveMK Day, and with the help of our products give people a different view of our wonderful city.”
Destination Milton Keynes is asking the MK Twitter community to use the hashtag #LoveMK on all their tweets on Thursday to try and get it trending in the UK, as it did last year.
And why not get creative… maybe create a banner, get your school involved, paint your face, knit a jumper, bake a cake – anything you can use #LoveMK on! And share it on social media.
You can also follow @DestinationMK on Twitter for your chance to win prizes on the day as they run ’12 competitions in 12 hours’ where you could win by just using the hashtag.
