New Website for Macmillan Cancer Support’s Christmas Shopping Fair

Feedback from Macmillan Cancer CareAlacrify is pleased to support Macmillan, by designing and building a new website for the Christmas Shopping Fair.

This is one of many charitable and community websites that we support, as part of our values-driven focus.

The fair has been running for many years and has over 40 stalls offering a wide range of high quality products to suit most tastes and wallets. It is an ideal opportunity for discerning shoppers to fulfil nearly all their Christmas shopping under one roof, with many products not available on the High Street.

This year the fair will be on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November at Kingston Maurward College. All funds raised go directly to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Macmillan Cancer Support improves the lives of people affected by cancer. We are all affected by cancer; almost half of us will get cancer at some point in our lives. Every day 15 people in Dorset hear the devastating news that they have cancer; there are over 30,000 people in Dorset living with cancer. As treatments improve, the total number of people living with cancer in Dorset will almost double by 2030.

The new website is a completely ‘responsive’ design which means it ‘collapses’ down for all screen sizes including tablets and mobiles. The Macmillan Christmas Shopping Fair passes all of Google’s ‘mobile-friendliness’ tests, so it is listed on Google searches as an ‘awesome’ responsive website.

Take a look at the newly built Macmillan Christmas Shopping Fair website:


New Website For R-em Therapies

We have just launched a new website for Emma at R-EM Therapies. R-EM Therapies is a new client of Alacrify’s that we’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with. R-EM came to us needing a new website as the old site was starting to show its age. The old site also wasn’t responsive and was also unsecure which negatively impacted the site's search engine rankings as well as being hard for users to access on their mobiles and tablets.

New Website For Ecs Special Projects

We have just launched a new website for ECS Special Projects. This is another website of ours that we originally built many years ago. The old site stood the test of time and still performed very well in Google searches, but the time had come for the look and feel to be updated in line with more contemporary design approaches.

New Website For Volunteer Centre Dorset

We have just launched a new website for Volunteer Centre Dorset. We designed and built their original site but over the years more and more content had been added to the site as well as additional functionality. This made the old site, over time, more cluttered and harder to navigate because of the vast amount of information on there.

New Website For Dorchester Community Plays Association - Spinning The Moon

Dorchester Community Plays Association commissioned us to create a brand new website to support their 7th Community play, "Spinning The Moon", which will be performed in 2020.
