Take note and look out for origami dogs

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

ORIGAMI dogs made from £10 notes were un­leashed on the streets of Uxbridge last week.

A team spent more than 125 hours fold­ing more than 500 pa­per pup­pies, which were then ran­domly placed at Tube sta­tions, cof­fee shops and shop­ping cen­tres across the cap­i­tal on Wed­nes­day, March 25.

The notes were hid­den for passers-by to find in ar­eas in­clud­ing Uxbridge and oth­ers across west Lon­don.

The pub­lic­ity stunt was per­formed by Bea­gle Street to high­light re­search the com­pany claims shows that, on av­er­age, peo­ple over­pay on their life in­sur­ance pre­mium by £109 a year.

The life in­sur­ance firm claims 87 per cent of peo­ple are put off get­ting life in­sur­ance be­cause they think it will be too ex­pen­sive, while 76 per cent be­lieve providers are not trans­par­ent with their of­fer­ings.

Man­ag­ing direc­tor Matthew Gled­hill said: “Hope­fully our £10 note Bea­gles will put a smile on peo­ple’s faces and pounds back into their pock­ets.”

The stunt will be re­peated in other cities over the com­ing weeks.
