Give a Helping Hand leaves it to public vote to lead rebrand

A social enterprise set up to help charities is leaving it to the public vote to choose its new logo.

Jolly Good Causes (JGC), previously Give a Helping Hand, is inviting members of the public to vote on their favourite from a selection of four possible logos, or to submit their own design for consideration instead.

People can vote or submit their own design by visiting the Jolly Good Causes website at

Voting closes this Friday at 7pm (22nd July). The winning logo design will then be announced the following Monday (25th July).

The logos: which one will the public choose?

Business partners Richard James and Jo Barr set up the company in 2014 to provide low cost and free press and communications support to small charities throughout the UK. It has just relocated to Surrey from London, and is looking for a revamp.

James said:

“When we got started we didn’t spend much time on the logo. But now we have decided it is a good time to relook at our logo. As a social enterprise, everything we do is for the benefit of charities and the communities they work in, so it seemed only right that we would look to those communities for their opinion on our new look.”
