Following months of uncertainty, Zoe Gillings, the British No 1 Olympic snowboarder from Arbory, today announced that since turning entrepreneur with the sole intention to fund her Olympic training program, her online daily deals website launched recently in the Isle of Man has exceeded everyone’s expectations and is now set to fund her Olympic program. is a deal-a-day website that features one deal at a time on the website offeringbetween 50%-90% off the usual price thanks to the power of group buying. Excellent deals are offered on a wide variety of services & products the Isle of Man has to offer including restaurants, salons, spa’s, golf, gyms, karting, horse riding etc giving the consumer an excellent opportunity to experience these activities at a fraction of the usual cost.
Zoe commented, “The support from Manx businesses and consumers alike has been awesome and I just couldn’t have done it without them.   The best bit is that any profit coming from is going straight to my Olympic training program so this means any business who put a deal on the site, any person who buys from the site, or anyone who simply tells their friendsabout the site are all playing a huge part in allowing me to represent the Isle of Man at the Olympics.”
Zoe has suffered several set backs in the last 6yrs from career threatening injuries to her governing body going bust on the eve of the Vancouver Olympics last year and more recently the UK government cancelling all her funding due to the politics in British sport.  This has made Zoe stronger to strive to achieve that Olympic medal.   Zoe is sponsored on the Island by Pokerstars, Isle of Man Sport Aid and Isle of Man Steam Packet company who's support is invaluable.
Since launching over 7 weeks ago, has sent over 800 customers to 14 Manx businesses and saved Manx consumers over £11,500.
Zoe finished, “I’m so proud to be Manx and love representing the Island at the Olympics and International sporting events, please do visit whenever you want to do anything in the Isle of Man as I promise there will be a great deal on there and please remember any profits earned are going straight into my Olympic training program.  Im also in the process of awarding official documentation that will go to every business who features on so they can display to all their customers the values of their business and brand as supporting a Manx Olympic athlete.”
“Thank you so much to everyone on the Isle of Man for supporting me in this new venture so far, I aim to bring you great deals every day from everything the Isle of Man has to offer so please visit and put a deal on there or buy one of the great deals on offer.” Said Zoe.
