Shooting Star seeks to champion a charity

PR and marketing agency Shooting Star is searching for a Charity of the Year to promote throughout 2016.

The agency is appealing to charities and not-for-profit organisations to approach it for support if they don’t already have the means for ongoing PR and marketing activity.

Since its launch in 2009, the initiative has provided support to a variety of causes including Strut in the Community (now KIDS Strut), The Ethan Maull ‘Up Yours To Cancer’ Foundation and The Ally Cadence Trust for Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

Kate Strawson, Director of Shooting Star, said: “As a company we are passionate about giving something back to the community, so every year we do our bit to help promote the work of a charity. Charities offer support to diverse parts of our community, but they often do not have the resources to promote their services.”

In 2015, YMCA Lincolnshire and The Nomad Trust in Lincoln were selected to receive pro bono help and guidance from Shooting Star. The charity provides support for a wide range of people of all ages with services from educational provision for vulnerable children to social housing and work-related training.
Malcolm Barham, Chief Executive of Lincolnshire YMCA, said: “I would like to say many thanks to Shooting Star for the work they have done over the past year. We are very grateful for what they have achieved during the time we have worked together.

“It has been a pleasure to work with the team and they have helped us greatly to promote our events and campaigns, and I am especially appreciative because of the fundraising they have done themselves.

“We have been so impressed with their efforts that we’re going to retain some of their services on a paid-for basis in 2016.”

As well as providing PR support, the agency also raised over £1,000 for the charity through its annual charity chippy quiz which took place at the Elite Fish and Chip Company in Lincoln in November.
