A group of six PR professionals, including myself, have formed a PR Council to voluntarily support and advise a fantastic charity called Create.
Our aim is to help the charity (which uses creative arts to transform the lives of society’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people) raise its profile nationally and consequently raise more funds.
I first had the privilege of getting involved with Create earlier this year and ever since I’ve wanted to volunteer for a charity – but wasn’t sure what skills I had to offer. Create provided the answer: my aptitude for PR.
After one short meeting on a cold and dark Thursday night, I already feel confident that this newly formed council of volunteers will be able to do a lot of good and really help the charity achieve its goals.
Watch this space (and hopefully your newspapers!) for more as it develops…
