At PLMR we don’t just talk about charities, we are passionate about them. As an ethical agency with a strong social conscience, PLMR is proud to support several third sector clients. They include some of the UK’s leading charities and innovative organisations including Cancer Research UK, Shining Hope Foundation, Combat Stress, and Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope. From organising receptions at 10 Downing Street, to securing widespread national media coverage, our track record of success in the charitable sector is second to none.
Since our foundation in 2006, we have donated 5% of net profit to charitable causes every year, and in 2010 won the Business Charity Award for Social Investment in recognition of our work for the Springfield Community Flat Project in Lambeth. Many members of the PLMR team have professional experience of working in voluntary organisations, and continue to support them in a personal capacity. In 2012, for example, we entered a team in the London Triathlon, and raised several hundred pounds for Trinity Hospice and Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Working with an agency with the right values can help a charity to complement the work of its in house PR and public affairs teams, or stand in for them if there are no such departments. We understand that small and large charities and voluntary organisations have a unique voice in British society – often at the sharp end of Government policies. Our experience, and the organisations we work with every day, mean that we know how to make sure charities’ voices are heard in an increasingly crowded marketplace.
