Leave only footprints in the sand – not litter: Luke’s running the length of the UK’s coast to reduce plastic going into the sea

Izzy PR has been asked by Luke Douglas-Home, aka The Coastal Runner, to manage the PR for his Kent visit. He’s running the length of the UK’s coastline to raise awareness of and make change to sea pollution on a local level. We’ve written and sent out a press release, liaised with media, set up interviews, invited and managed the invitations to local councillors, confirmed meetings with schools and created a photographers’ brief. We’ll also be there on the day to support.

Are the pandemic toddlers ‘Reception Ready’ for September

We worked with our client Speech4Kids, a speech and language therapy clinic, to pitch a story to the media which was run on BBC Radio Kent and BBC South East Today – the regional evening news.
Some of the children she is working with are due to start primary school in September – but their speech, language and communication may have been affected due to the extraordinary circumstances.
We put information together outlining the problems she is seeing in clinic, gave reasons why, provided research and also guidance on what parents can look for and how to help their children.
