Double page spread for family business client

Great to kick off this week’s cuttings round with a double page spread of publicity for a new client.

Chandler Material Supplies, in Chelmsford, Essex, was keen to shout about the work it has continued to do in the city for generations.

The Your Yesteryear section of local newspaper the Essex Chronicle was the ideal slot to tell the community about the long history behind the family business.

After discussions with our good contacts on the publication, we were able to secure a double page – twice the size of the usual Your Yesteryear feature – for our client.

Written by our journalist Kelly Clark, the article features in this week’s newspaper.

Publicity sparks business inquiries for KLC client

Clients employ our PR services for a variety of reasons. For some, it’s about raising the profile of their company among a specific audience, while for others it’s in the hope of attracting inquiries and new customers.

So, we were thrilled a recent piece of publicity promoting our client Secure Haven Funeral Directors’ range of memorial products resulted in immediate inquiries from potential customers.

The article, written by our journalist, appeared in the Echo newspaper, in Essex, and encouraged readers to pick up the phone and contact Secure Haven – which they did.

We have also helped to raise the profile of the company with other articles published both online and across the airwaves. Here are just the most recent…

KLC helping to get your news in print

A big part of the work we do here at KLC is helping businesses and organisations to get their news in print.

That’s when the call comes in to KLC to help. With more than 20 years’ experience behind us of working within newspapers and magazines, getting news published is second nature.

With such a personal story behind the reason for setting up the business, it was an obvious starting point with regards getting the company in the local media. With the company owners happy to discuss their back story, KLC were able to get them airtime on BBC Essex radio, as well as prominent coverage in newspapers and 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…”

Charity’s profile raised by KLC article

We’re thrilled this week to have secured wonderful publicity for our newest client.

The charity enlisted the help of KLC to raise its profile and to give a more professional approach to all of its written publications which are used to attract funding support.

Using our contacts in the local media, we managed to secure this coverage for our client as part of a three page feature on alcohol problems in Chelmsford, where the charity is based.
