A PR agency in Northamptonshire is opening its doors to offer ‘Post Covid PR Clinic’ appointments to local businesses and raise money for a local charity.
Ballyhoo PR, which recently moved into new offices in Lamport, Northamptonshire, is inviting businesses across the county to book a one-to-one appointment with company founder Emma Speirs and discuss their PR and marketing activity and brainstorm some ideas.
Those who attend an appointment will get a 30-minute slot with Emma and leave with the beginnings of a ‘post Covid PR plan’ which they can develop on.
The appointments will cost a nominal fee of £10 to raise money Cynthia Spencer Hospice as part of the charity’s £45 accelerator challenge, which sees businesses try to turn £45 into as much money as possible by 1st November to support the organisation.
Emma Speirs said: “We are starting to receive enquiries from businesses keen to come out of the fog of the Coronavirus pandemic and make an impact with some positive press coverage that sets them apart from their competition.
“We are also moving into the final quarter of 2021 so now is a great time to start planning ahead and thinking about 2022 PR and marketing plans.
“Running these clinics will give us chance to help several businesses and raise money for a fantastic cause at the same time.”
The Post Covid PR Clinics will take place at Ballyhoo PR’s office at Lamport between 10am and 2pm on the following days:
Tuesday 5th October
Wednesday 6th October
Monday 11th October
Tuesday 19th October
Businesses who attend the clinic appointments will not only receive one-to-one bespoke advice and suggestions, they will also receive templates they can use to plan their PR activity.
“This concept is hugely exciting for me personally,” adds Emma. “Generating ideas for PR campaigns and putting them into some sort of plan or strategy is an element of the job I really enjoy. To get the chance to work with new businesses on this and seeing where they will take it will be amazing!”
Corporate partnerships fundraiser at the hospice, Nina Gandy, said: “Our £45 Accumulator Challenge started on 6th September and runs for eight weeks, giving businesses the opportunity to have fun and fundraise at the same time. Previous participants have raised money through teambuilding and networking events so we’re hoping the teams who have signed up this year will come up with even more ingenious ways to fundraise for our patients and their families while maximising opportunities for their own businesses too.
“It is fantastic to see Ballyhoo PR come up with a fundraising concept that will not only help Cynthia Spencer Hospice but help other local organisations too. We wish them every success with their Post Covid PR Clinics.”
