Platform81 Lend a Helping Hand

JustHelping is enormously proud to have been chosen by local business Platform81 to manage our social media during the Christmas tree collection campaign.  This will undoubtedly raise the profile of the charity and increase awareness of the Christmas tree collection which raises money for local hospices and charities in England and Wales.

Based in Stockport, Platform81 is a digital marketing and design agency which has been serving clients in the North West and the Midlands since 2007.  With expertise in website design and build, graphic design, branding and digital marketing, the award-winning team works with organisations across a wide range of sectors.  And now for JustHelping following a recent meeting at Stockport Business Club! Clare Hinton, CEO said, “it really did feel like all our Christmases had come at once, when Platform81 decided to lend a helping hand with our social media for the duration of the Christmas tree collection.”

“Not only do we love Stockport, but we LOVE Christmas too, so we wanted to help in the way that we know best, which was by supporting JustHelping digitally as part of our 10 for 10 campaign; celebrating 10 years in the business by raising £10,000 for charities!”.

Taking part during the second weekend in January after the twelfth night, the collections is a fun event which sees volunteers give up their time to help collect and recycle Christmas trees throughout Stockport. Our digital support will include social media management during the four-month campaign, with the addition of blog content and a donation toward a paid social media budget to really help raise awareness of the charity and the great work it is doing for the community.

At the heart of our activity is digital marketing apprentice Jenny, who will be heading up the campaign to ensure it gets maximum exposure: “I’m really looking forward to the next four months working with JustHelping. As well as raising awareness of the charity’s work; we will be able to drive donations for a deserving hospice in our local area while bringing fun filled festive spirit to the charity’s social pages!”
