The tiny island of Taransay off the Western Isles has sold for an undisclosed sum. Ben Fogle who lived on the island for some time as part of the BBC series Castaway, was known to be leading a bid to buy the item with a consortiu. However, it seems he was unsuccessful as the island has been bought by a local landowner who also has land in Harris. The agents say that the new owner will be safe hands for the beautiful and remote island.
The asking price for the island was £2 million and above. The new owner is someone closely associated with the area who will endeavour to preserve the current management provision for the island. The island already offers sea as well as trout fishing, deer stalking and it also has a sheep farm. In 300 AD the island was said to have been the home of Celtic Pagans and was also the site of many bloody battles most notable the Battle of Taransay in 1544 when the Morrisons of Lewis invaded.
Whilst you may never be able to own your own island, you could consider buying an island related stress ball such as a tree, a sun, a mountain or even a book with the top 100 beaches as the title.

A task force has been set up in Bangladesh to save the Royal Bengal Tiger. The 300 strong task force will try to safeguard the 400 Royal Bengal Tigers that are left in the Sundarbans Forest region between India and Bangladesh. This move was prompted by the discovery of tiger skins and a large quantity of bones recently.
Officials admitted that they did not have the manpower to cope with the increasingly sophisticated techniques employed by the poachers. Money for the training and equipping of the task force will come from the World Bank Loan. The Task Force will also attempt to stop the illegal trafficking of animals which is a growing problem.
If you like tigers then why not consider having a stress tiger printed with your company logo as your latest giveaway? These are great items and are a beautiful item to have on your desk. To see an example just visit us at www.mikkis.co.uk or www.stress-balls.co.uk where you will find the tiger and many other great stress ball items to choose from.

We are fortunate at Mikkis group of companies as we have a great client base that we work closely with to meet budgets and deadlines but unfortunately a lot of companies are suffering with the credit crunch!
A lot of companies tend to cut back on many things and one of the first things to get cut is the marketing budget!

Promotional items are important for a variety of different reasons but the most important is they help promote brand awareness and gain new business.
