Keep Team GB pumped on your campus

 

Cadbury Spots v Stripes bring Olympic fun to your campus

 

Cadbury, the Official Treat Provider to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, has pledged to get the nation playing more games in the run up to the ultimate Games in 2012, because playing is good for us, but we just don’t do enough of it!

 

This Autumn the Cadbury Games Crew will be bringing their brand new activation “Keeping Our Team Pumped’ to universities across the UK. Students will be encouraged to a sing power ballads in support of Team GB along with Games Crew as judges, smoke machines and of course lots of delicious Cadbury chocolate!

 

The Cadbury Games Crew have activated 74 university dates across the UK and this has lead to thousands of Spots v Stripes games being played by students. From crazy games such as Frizzy Winks and Balls for Brains to encouraging students to become Guinness World Record Holders at every day tasks such as coin stacking and tea making during Cadbury Race Season. Games Crew have also attended unions at night bringing along their Cadbury Dairy Milk Dance Off with the Cuban Brothers to university balls in May of this year. 

 

If you’d like to “Keep Team GB Pumped” at your university please contact: Ben Knight via ben@itsprettygreen.com

 

Graduates also make up a strong proportion of the Cadbury Games Crew and has proved an exciting job role to move to upon leaving study. Speaking about the campaign, Northern Games Crew Team Leader and ex Union President of Trinity and All Saints College Stephen Cranny said: “The Cadbury Games Crew events are so much fun and it is fantastic to take a small part of the London 2012 Olympic Games to students all across the nation. Many people haven’t played a lot of the games since they were young, so it’s brilliant to get them involved and amazing at how competitive they all become!”

 

The Cadbury Games Crew events are part of Cadbury Spots v Stripes - the biggest, longest, most fun game ever created by Cadbury to celebrate being the Official Treat Provider for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
