Tactile CRM helps bring the Harvest Festival into the 21st Century

Coventry based Tactile CRM are helping to bring the traditional Harvest Festival into the 21st Century by sponsoring this week’s brand new ‘Harvest Twestival‘.

‘Harvest Twestival’ is collecting food and money for The Connection at St Martin-in-the-Fields, to help the homeless. Following the tradtional Harvest Festival format of collecting tins of food, it’s being brought into the 21st century by being organised via the social networking site Twitter to bring together people from all over the country to help support this worthy cause.

Jake Stride – Managing Director, said “We’re really pleased to be involved in the World’s first ever Harvest Twestival and hope more people are able to leverage the Internet, and the friends they make online to try and make a difference to those less fortunate than themselves.”.


On Thursday 25 September, over 200 people who know each other through will descend on Doon, an exclusive venue in Trafalgar Square, for Harvest Twestival, a tweet-up with a social conscience.

The event will bring together fun people, fresh ideas and a few surprises for what promises to be an unforgettable event. All profits from the night will be donated to The Connection at St Martin-in-the-Fields, a community centre based in Trafalgar Square that works with homeless people.

Amanda Rose, one of the organisers of Harvest Twestival, said “We’re expecting the who’s who of the UK Twitter scene to attend. Social tweet ups like this are a great way to meet the faces behind those avatars while raising lots of money for a fantastic cause.”

The event is sponsored by UnLtd World, Huddle, Diffusion PR, Tactile CRM, Winston & Strawn LLP and Just Giving.
