We offered to help out with gaining media coverage for a big Xmas lunch event that’s taking place in Medway.
It’s run by our friends Grace Kelly and Paul Williams at 21st Century Flooring and Michelle Dowsett from Discovery PA.
For the last eight years, they’ve prepped, cooked, served and delivered Xmas lunches to people in Medway who need them, including the homeless and lonely.
Izzy PR offered to help them get word out to make sure those who want a dinner, know about it and can find out how to get one!
We sent the details of the event to various Kent media – as it’s such a wonderful Xmas story, plus there are so many people involved, giving donations of food, cash, and time – many spend the day on Dec 23rd prepping the veg and others serve the meals on the Big Day or deliver them.
It’s a big event that takes a lot of organising!
