KLICK BUSINESS SOLUTIONS – KEEPING CALM AND CARRYING ON
Despite the pandemic, Klick Business Solutions based in Wall Heath has thrived throughout the last few months and welcomed two new members of staff to the award winning-tender writing business.
Managing Director, Andrea Childs said, “We have gained 18 brand new clients so far this year who have turned to Klick for help to win new contracts, and we’ve had an amazing 32 wins for our new and retained clients, equating to around £160M worth of contracts won so far in 2021.”
Klick brought back a number of team members that were still on furlough after the Christmas break and re-opened their office in May following government guidelines.
“We welcomed our team back into the office with gift bags full of goodies and hand sanitiser,” said Andrea, “There were cupcakes, banners and balloons as the team returned on a rota system, with some continuing to work from home after we successfully passed a Covid-19 Inspection by Dudley Council.
“I have certainly realised the importance of having excellent communication systems in place, so we have invested £2,500 into a new IT and phone system, using local company B2B Communications whom we met through the Black Country Chamber.
“Getting through the Covid-19 crisis has been tough, but positivity has kept ‘Team Klick’ thriving and we have never been busier, we are all looking forward to a great second half of the year and a return to normality.”

JOIN A NATIONAL OUTPOURING OF LOVE AND RAISE MONEY FOR YOUR LOCAL HEROES
The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust Charity is urging people in the West Midlands to join the nation’s biggest tea break on July, Monday 5th ( would Monday, 5th July read better) and help raise money for the incredible people in our NHS who’ve done so much to help everyone get through the pandemic.
Following a year like no other, The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust Charity wants as many people as possible to get involved in a national outpouring of love and thanks for NHS staff and volunteers on its birthday by hosting or taking part in an NHS Big Tea at 3pm on the 5th of July.
Each event can be in person or virtual, with the community, friends, family or at work, and is a chance to reflect and say thank you for everything that NHS staff and volunteers have done and continue to do, by taking part in the nation’s biggest tea break to raise money for The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust Charity.
People can host their own event, or they can show their support by taking 5 minutes to enjoy a tea break, texting £5 to support The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust Charity and tagging five friends on social media and calling on them to do the same.
Thousands are expected to host events and NHS Charities Together has produced a pack to help those events go with a swing. To take part and get your pack, please visit the website
