Following a competitive pitch, the agency and charity are working together to develop a robust strategic development of London’s Air Ambulance Charity’s fundraising proposition, using WPNC’s donor insight expertise. The culmination of this approach will be the launch of a DRTV and social media campaign this spring. The TV ad will air in the London area.
