Broadcast PR - Markettiers

December 11, 2009


markettiers4dc are very proud to announce their 2010 charity of the year is Help for Heroes

The organisation, which was launched in October 2007, provides direct, practical support to wounded Servicemen and women and we are delighted to be able to ‘do our bit’ to show these extraordinary young men and women that they are cared for.

The first project we will be supporting in January will be the release of Heroes! The Greatest War Movies Ever! which aims to raise at least £1 million which will go towards building new Army Recovery Centres (ARC). Soldiers who are wounded in the service of their country currently receive excellent medical care, however it is once the soldier has stopped being an ‘inpatient’ that problems can arise.

Most wounded soldiers are able to return to their homes, but not all families can provide the level of support, supervision and care needed to help someone who has a serious injury.

In addition to the pro-bono campaign work throughout the year we will also be fundraising through our regular client workshops.

We run workshops on all aspects of the Broadcast Communications mix to give you the opportunity to find out exactly how to benefit from radio, TV and the web as well as gain a detailed understanding of how these three media are developing.

Workshops are available on Broadcast PR & Evaluation, Briefing Spokespeople, Understanding Convergence, Effective Use of Research, Online Focus Groups, Podcasting & WebTV.

Each session aims to not only give attendees valuable advice and tips on how to make the most of your campaigns, but also, where appropriate, a chance to get first hand, simulated live broadcast experience, as we'll give you the chance to get behind the mic and in front of the camera in one of our five broadcast studios.

We have set up a Justgiving page to allow client’s attending our regular workshops to donate a minimum fee of £50 per place (discounts will apply for multiple bookings from one company).

Workshops are very informal and, according to the feedback we've had, as well as being highly informative, are great fun. We hope that you will look upon the small donation as recognition of the value and benefit gained by them.

For more information on our workshops contact or your account handler.
