£10,000 marketing support available to Shropshire charities

Full-service marketing agency Reech has opened applications for its Reech and Reward Charity of the Year initiative, offering Shropshire-based charities access to £10,000 of marketing services.

After the success of 2022’s scheme, which saw Reech supporting Shrewsbury Food Hub with a new website, branding and marketing expertise, the agency is excited to select a new project for 2023.

To be eligible, charities must be based in Shropshire and be prepared to pitch their ideas to the senior management team at Reech, detailing how the £10,000 of support could benefit their charity and help to meet their objectives.

‘Our Reech and Reward support can be used across any of our services, to part or fully fund an upcoming project,’ says Amelia Redge, Head of Marketing at Reech. ‘Whether the charity wants to design and build a new website, refresh their branding or launch a new digital campaign for example, we want to add real value and deliver a project that will contribute to our chosen charity’s 2023 goals.’

‘We’ve loved working with Shrewsbury Food Hub as part of last year’s initiative. We became a real extension of their team and helped to increase awareness of the great work they do, as well as creating the Taste Not Waste campaign. This year we’re looking for a new charity to work with and can’t wait to see the applications that land on our desks.’

‘At the very first meeting, we felt Reech had understood what we were all about and what we were trying to achieve,’ says Lois Winstanley, Grant Fundraising and Communications Specialist at Shrewsbury Food Hub. ‘Our old website didn’t reflect who we are as a charity and we needed guidance on how to launch our Taste Not Waste Campaign. We had confidence that they would do a great job, and we haven’t been disappointed.’

They had some brilliant ideas for how our website could work better for people wanting to find out about what we do. They have brought it to life and it now shows who we truly are. Their help with our Taste Not Waste campaign has been above and beyond too. As well as being a talented bunch, they have been very kind and patient! It has been a joy to work with them.” – Lois Winstanley, Shrewsbury Food Hub
