Trends UK is to promote its revamped Discovery Adventures brand on the Discovery Channel at weekends in a series of fun and engaging sponsorship bumpers.

“We are thrilled our Discovery Adventures items are being featured on the Discovery Channel,” says Lindsay Hardy, Marketing Director, Trends UK. “The Discovery Adventure brand ident films are great fun and very engaging for the family. It is an amazing showcase to promote our popular Discovery Adventures range to millions of viewers.”
