PLMR's CEO Kevin Craig with Holocaust survivor Janine Webber.

Leading UK Comms Agency PLMR is proud to announce a donation of £10,000 to support the London-based Holocaust Educational Trust in its mission to educate young people about the horrors of the Holocaust. 

As a communications agency that takes a uniquely philanthropic approach and champions social values, we are truly passionate about various charitable causes at home and abroad. Educating young people about the history of the Holocaust remains vitally important, especially due to the continued hatred and egregious human rights violations we see around the world today. This is why PLMR is proud to support charities such as the Holocaust Educational Trust to ensure that the world never sees a repeat of the horrors witnessed over 80 years ago.

PLMR’s Founder and CEO, Kevin Craig, said:

“Thank you to the Holocaust Educational Trust for a morning that I will never forget. An hour in a room where we were silenced in awe and respect at the testimony of a Holocaust Survivor – Janine Webber BEM.  I am incredibly proud and honoured to have founded an agency that continues to expand its charitable outreach.  Looking at the shocking scenes currently unfolding in Ukraine or past tragedies in places like Syria or Rwanda, it becomes even more important to aid the amazing work of the Holocaust Educational Trust and other organisations in educating and raising awareness of the horrors inflicted by hateful ideologies.

 “In conjunction with our recent donation, since PLMR was founded in 2006, we continue to donate 5% of net profits to various charitable organisations. We are proud to have donated more than £300,000 to date and we look forward to carrying on with this approach to our work in the future.”

Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, Karen Pollock CBE, said:

“Thank you to Kevin Craig and everyone at PLMR for their generous support for the Holocaust Educational Trust. Our mission is to ensure everyone learns about this seismic episode of our shared history and understands where antisemitism and hate can ultimately lead.

Hearing from a Holocaust Survivor first hand is a unique experience and we were delighted to offer that opportunity to the PLMR team. Janine’s testimony is heart wrenching and her story of survival extraordinary. Whilst very difficult to hear, she somehow leaves her audience inspired. I am sure she had an enormous impact on the PLMR team and we could not be more grateful for their support.”
