A team at Genesis PR will be tackling a 12-mile trek along the river Orwell on Sunday 25 June to raise vital funds for the brilliant work of Families in Need (FIND). The Orwell Walk, organised annually by the Rotary Club of Ipswich East, is one of many fundraising opportunities for Genesis PR as part of their commitment to support FIND throughout 2017.
As well as raising vital funds for the charity, the team are also offering pro-bono PR expertise to support FIND’s valuable work for families and individuals affected by poverty. Genesis PR’s key project for FIND will be the launch of a county-wide campaign to raise funds for a new foodbank premises and furniture warehouse for the charity in Ipswich.
The Suffolk communications agency’s director, Penny Arbuthnot, said: “We are keen to do all we can to support FIND as our Charity of the Year 2017, for its amazing work with local families in need. We look forward to supporting the charity with our PR expertise and to taking part in the Orwell Walk among other fundraising challenges as a team, to help FIND continue its vital work in Suffolk.”
FIND provides food, household items, furniture, bedding and white goods free of charge to those living in Ipswich and the surrounding area who are deprived of the minimum standard of living. The charity was established by Maureen Reyne, MBE, who has run FIND voluntarily for over 25 years.
