New web base business takes off thanks to funding from NBSL. is a 'Groupon' style voucher website providing access to heavily discounted offers to consumers within the North East, The aim is to encourage people to spend with businesses within the region.

Business Need

The project with NBSL was the website, without of which we would not be in business. We used the funding to create a fantastic website which set the foundation for to get the size it is now.


The website was designed by Squashed Pixel Ltd to feature many aspects that would have been unaffordable for the fledgling business without help from the North East business Support Fund. This included Social Media integration which has driven a large following which has dramatically increased awareness of the business within the North East.


The impact has already been massive. From Social Media which has a regional reach of nearly 30,000 to the newsletter which reaches 40,000 NE people to the large amount of visitors attracted to the site. Chris Tubman, MD of is thrilled with the success to date "This would not have been possible without the website being developed to the standard it is which is thanks to NBSL. We do, and will continue to, highly recommend NBSL to the many regional businesses we come in contact with."
