Sometimes a fresh pair of eyes and a willingness to help is all it needs. And when it’s for charity, it’s even more important to get involved.
Supporting local causes matters to us. For the last couple of years, we’ve been working with Dove Cottage, offering marketing expertise, design skills and print services to help them finalise a marketing strategy and achieve their fundraising goals through a series of events and initiatives.
Situated in the beautiful Vale of Belvoir, Dove Cottage provides high quality palliative day care to people living in Leicestershire, Rutland and Nottinghamshire. Offering more than 3,700 day places every year, their services are provided free of charge so they rely on lots of fundraising.
Community action makes a real difference. We were only too happy to get involved with raising awareness of their 2017 summer event featuring It’s A Knockout (with dog show. We all love a dog show).
To kick things off, we designed a flyer incorporating the event registration form, making it easy for people to sign up and get involved. We also arranged for it to be printed so the team could distribute it and spread the word far and wide.
Not only was the fete was very successful, raising £333 from the family dog show and £5,300 from the fete and prize draw, the fun (and foam!) filled team event was so popular that it’s likely to be repeated next summer.
Strong links make for a strong community. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Dove Cottage and helping them promote the fantastic work that they do locally.
