Designers support young peoples charity

Designers support young peoples charity
A Birmingham-based charity that helps prevent young people becoming homeless has been given a helping hand with its fundraising drive.
St Basils, which provides accommodation and services for young people aged 16 to 25 to help prevent homelessness, received support from Pertemps People Development Group (PPDG).
The Edgbaston-based company contacted local charities offering the services of its marketing and design team free of charge. It has appealed for more charities that may benefit from free graphic design support services to get in touch. 
PPDGs talented design team approached St Basils to offer marketing support to help its charity fundraising objectives.
Lucy Hackett, of St Basils, said: It has been a great opportunity for us to work with a professional design team to create an easy to use fundraising pack for our supporters. Members of the public can now easily download a fundraising pack from at no charge to St Basils.
The creative designers at PPDG have been a fantastic support and have created a super tool for us to promote our fundraising and encourage other members of the public to help us reach our annual fundraising targets. The downloadable fundraising pack makes fundraising easier by providing some basic marketing templates and information to help promote events or challenges and raise more money for St Basils.
We are so grateful to the team. Its been wonderful working with them and they have produced a great looking pack for us that was right on brief. We will now try and encourage more people to visit the website, download the pack and start raising money for St Basils to support the prevention of youth homelessness in the region.
