Case Study: A survival kit for In the Zone, Leyland. Made in Lancashire.

In the Zone, a serviced offices and business support provider in Leyland, approached Bamber Bridge based to provide them with various items they could put together as a COVID-19 survival kit for their clients.

In the Zone have been a client of for some time. The long established company have supplied branded gifts such as pens and notepads to gift to their tenants who are located at their serviced offices, or clients who use their boardroom for events. The company have also supplied promotional gifts for expos such as teddy bears wearing branded t-shirts and place mats.

Survival kits

As lockdown measures began to ease, In the Zone owner, Mandy Cardwell, was being contacted by tenants, keen to return to their serviced offices. To facilitate their safe return, she wanted to put together a kit to make the transition easy for clients, whilst also promoting In the Zone and the services they can provide.

Both parties agreed that the kit should include a celebratory bottle of Prosecco (why not?), along with hygiene items such as a face mask, hand gel, wipes, tissues and gloves. For the branded gifts, BGUK suggested a pen and notepad, which are always popular, and a sports bottle. The sports bottle was key in putting the package together; rather than use communal glasses which In the Zone haven’t been able to provide during the pandemic, each client could take ownership of their own bottle to avoid cross contamination. The promotional sports bottles and notepads were manufactured right here in Lancashire. The pens were also printed locally.

Meeting room

The In the Zone meeting room is now available to hire again. At the time of writing, up to 4 people can safely use the room at any one time but eventually they expect to get back to the full 20 person capacity. More details at
