It’s all smiles here at Spirit Towers with two great pieces of news about the Gromit Unleashed project in one week!
Yesterday (April 3rd 2014), we handled the announcement that the project, managed by the charity Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, raised £3.8m in just 18 months, smashing its original target of £3.5m.
In a carefully co-ordinated press call, the media got a chance to see the new life-saving equipment funded by The Grand Appeal, as well as interview a young patient’s family and a consultant neurosurgeon, to find out just what a difference the charity funding will make to the treatment and experience of children at Bristol Children’s hospital.
And this afternoon, it was announced on Twitter that we have made the shortlist for the prestigious CIPR Excellence national awards.
Working in collaboration with The Grand Appeal, our promotional and engagement campaign has been nominated for a national Not-for-Profit PR award, and we’ll all have our fingers (or paws!) crossed in June, when the winner will be announced.
