A Harrogate-based businessman has created a new online platform to change how events are found and shared, catching the attention of Harrogate MP, Andrew Jones.
David Stanier, who lives in Harrogate, came across the need for an easier way to join others in a bid to become fit and active. Having spent numerous hours wading through an endless maze of what’s on and where to go websites, typing in his life story only to realise that there was nothing there he wanted to do or its miles away,
David decided to create a platform to fulfil this need himself.
Andrew Jones, MP, has been one of the first to test the new site.
“It is great to see local innovative businesses start and grown. It was a pleasure to meet David and hear about doitcrowd.com which is [a] good example of the new ventures in our area. I wish him and the team every success in bringing people together and getting more people involved in the many community activities.”
Having appointed Leeds-based LITTLE agency to build a bespoke platform, the site launched this month, following eight months of development.
Do It Crowd, a free and simple to use platform shows all events via an easy-to-navigate map view. Visitors to the site can choose when and what they want to do, or just click on everything that’s there. Furthermore, the site informs the user straightaway if any event details are changed and it tracks whether there is a full team for the next game or event.
A keen fitness advocate, David spent 28 years working in the army as a training, HR and IT systems analyst. Having retired from the military in 2011, David has spent the past five years as a business and management consultant, with a focus to keep active in and amongst running his business.
David has successfully completed several triathlons, is currently training for a three-peak challenge and he hopes to inspire others to get fit through the use of Do It Crowd.
