Shrewdd is raising awareness of the Samaritans festival branch’s attendance at a variety of festivals throughout the summer by issuing press releases liaising with the media and managing a Twitter campaign.
The Samaritans festival branch has a dedicated team of approachable fully trained volunteers that offer a non-judgemental fully confidential face-to-face listening service for all festival visitors and employees. No matter how serious or how trivial the matter may seem.
In 2015 the charity attended 17 festivals and listened to hundreds of people. Recognising that even though festivals can be full of celebration the loneliest place in the world is to be an unhappy person in a place full of happy people.
Commenting on Shrewdd Marketing’s support for the charity Austin Duffy marketing manager at Samaritans festival branch said: “It’s always a pleasure working with the team at Shrewdd Marketing. Everyone at the company is approachable and understands our requirements as a charity. So far there has been some great media coverage and we look forward to working with the company on projects in the future.”
Alf Lombardi director at Shrewdd Marketing added: “The Samaritans festival branch is a wonderful service and as a company, we are more than happy to offer our marketing support to the charity ex gratia. By increasing awareness of the Samaritans festival branch’s attendance at some of the UK’s largest festivals, more people may feel inclined to use the charity’s services if they need someone to talk to.”
Over the course of the last few years, Shrewdd Marketing has worked for a number of national and local charities including the Wallace and Gromit Children’s Charity and Working Wonders.
