Endorsement

We are a very small Suffolk charity addressing the stress of rural isolation and loneliness. We needed to raise our profile and make ourselves more attractive to potential funders. However we had a very small pr/marketing budget and even less expertise. Helen Oldfield of Affinity PR offered to match every hour paid for with a donated hour of her time. This proved invaluable as with her help we went on to secure a substantial grant enabling us to continue this important work. We subsequently won a Council Community Achievement Award proving our profile had indeed been raised.

Endorsement

Affinity PR worked tirelessly with the initiative to ensure coverage around the region. Each month, a new media channel was sourced in order to successfully extend the reach of the work we did. We had coverage across all media demonstrating the amazing efforts that the PR team did pro bono for us.

Endorsement

Helen Oldfield, as Visiting Fellow at Suffolk Business School, has been invaluable in the support of our Event, Tourism, Hospitality and Leisure programmes over the past few years. She has provided visiting lectures, given advice and guidance to students in their quest for employment, supported the development of a series of student-led corporate events, and has engaged students in case study based projects, to support their curriculum experience and employability. She has been a critical friend, and a supportive mentor.

Laura  Locke - 27 March 2015

Endorsement

As a member of Suffolk Soul Singers, Helen took on a voluntary PR role on the committee for a couple of years ending in August 2014. This involved promoting the choir and our gigs within the local community, with local press and media and via social media. Helen was able to use her experience, skills and contacts to enable us to spread the word far and wide about the choir and as a result we have gained an excellent reputation for the music we perform in and around Suffolk.
