Worlds Apart celebrates MD’s 50th

Published on: 14th February 2014

Worlds Apart found an alternative way of encouraging managing director, Neil Shinner, to celebrate his 50th birthday this week with a ‘Where’s Wally’ theme.Real-Neil-Shinner-300

To mark the occasion, the entire company donned a specially commissioned ‘Neil Shinner’ mask. The wind-up, instigated by John Stewart, left it very hard to spot the birthday boy in amongst the crowd. Neil Shinner, who was completely taken by surprise said: “I had a very strange birthday bumping into myself all day.”

To keep in the birthday spirit, Worlds Apart is launching a twitter party game and offering a goodie bag for one lucky winner drawn at random from those who correctly ‘tweet’ the colour of the real Neil Shinner’s jumper in the picture to @worldsapartkids alongside #happybirthdayneilshinner before midnight on Sunday 16th February.
