Shooting Star PR looks for charity of the year for 2014

Lincoln-based PR agency Shooting Star PR is looking for a charity to become its Charity of the Year for 2014. The selected charity or not-for-profit organisation will benefit throughout the year from free advice and expertise which it might otherwise not be able to afford.
Shooting Star PR is inviting applications from charities that could benefit from its PR services which include news releases, social media, feature writing, crisis management and media monitoring.

Last year’s charity of the year

Last year the agency chose The Ally Cadence Trust for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (ACT for SMA), which helps families and people affected by the condition.
Emma Humphries, founder of the charity said:

“Thanks to the support of Shooting Star PR we have been able to raise awareness of the genetic disease that is currently incurable. Their friendly team identified new fundraising ideas for us, as well as promoting the work we do to help affected families.
“Our annual ball was a fantastic success and we simply can’t thank them enough for their support during 2013, it has been invaluable.”

Previous beneficiaries

Shooting Star PR set up its Charity of the Year programme in 2009. Since then it has also provided pro bono PR services to the Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, Strut in the Community, Lincoln Women’s Aid and Candles.
Kate Strawson, Director of Shooting Star PR, said:

“This year we’d like to help a similar charity or organisation to raise their profile and encourage more people to donate money or become a volunteer as a result.”
