Bulldog Buzz is what our troops in Afghanistan drink when they need energy. Since launch in 2009, more than 4.5 million cans have been consumed. This amazing success lead us to do 2 things: Firstly, to say thanks to our brave troops, we donate 5p from every can sold to Help for Heroes. Secondly, it seems only fair that the rest of the UK get to enjoy Bulldog Buzz! We are now launching into the UK, with our first major retailer expected to start selling in Autumn 2011. Bulldog Buzz comes in 2 great flavours – Berry and Citrus and has 70% more caffeine than our competitors. For more info, visit www.buzznrg.co.uk

Event Marketing Rep

Lella is in her second year at Exeter University studying Economics and Politics. Being in the OTC and having a military family background provided the incentives to join the DecAid team.
