PR campaign launches with front pages!

Our PR campaign in support of a client’s bid to build and open a brand new free school got off to a powerful start this week.

We invited members of the local press to come along to interview the head of Burnt Mill Co-operative Academy Trust, in Harlow, Essex, to reveal the new school plans.

Immediately, reporters for the Harlow Star newspaper and YourHarlow online news channel published the news online…

Great feedback for KLC copywriting

It’s always great to know a client or partner is happy with the way we work here at KLC and the quality of writing we produce.

So, it was wonderful to not only hear charity client Helping Hands Essex was thrilled with our latest pieces of work for them – production of a leaflet and 12-page annual review – but also to receive TWO glowing testimonials to boot! These pieces of work follow an initial piece of PR work which earned extensive publicity for the growing charity.

Programme director of the charity, Graham Pooley, said:

Kelly has just completed a third piece of work for us and we have been delighted with the results. There is no doubt involving a professional is really worth it – in our relations with the local media, in distilling what we and our clients wanted to say and in ensuring that translated into high quality copy, for example for our just published Annual Review.”

Creative partner Graham Conway, who handled the design and print of the publications alongside KLC, said:

“Having been in the business for over 20 years now, I have come across three types of writers –  terrible, average and bl..dy good at what they do… Kelly is like a dream writer to work with, also very modest at that. Not only are her words brilliant, but she also helps us designers by working as a real team player, also getting into our heads and making design/words work in tandem.

“I could not recommend Kelly enough and look forward to working with her again…”

Supporting a cause close to our hearts – dementia care

A cause close to our hearts here at KLC is dementia support. Kelly Clark’s stepfather is in specialist dementia care as he has Alzheimers at the young age of 65.

So when supermarket Asda was looking for its next batch of local causes to support, we put forward Rawreth Court, in Essex, where Kelly’s stepfather is cared for. The NHS home was selected as one of three options for customers to support by placing their green tokens in a box. The home was picked over and over again and won the £200 on offer to the most popular cause over a period of two months.

Of course, it was then our pleasure to help secure publicity for both Asda and Rawreth Court, without charge.

Great coverage for international aid client

We are thrilled with the huge publicity KLC secured for new client Butyl Products this month.

The international aid company, based in Essex, was keen to gain some publicity as it celebrated its 50th anniversary.

Our journalist produced and distributed a press release and background article on the company and the publicity it has received has been wonderful.

All three of the company’s big local newspapers have given the story large coverage.
