Refresh PR hired by north west charity The Walton Lea Partnership

Refresh PR will be supporting a North West based charity, the Walton Lea Partnership, with PR services.  The charity provides supported employment for adults with learning disabilities, mental health issues, mobility challenges and early onset Alzheimer’s, and currently has two sites in Warrington, The Walton Lea Walled Garden and the Long Lane Garden Centre. The Manchester-based PR agency was appointed by the charity to raise awareness of its services and offerings to beneficiaries, volunteers, donators and visitors.


Phil Marshall, director at the Walton Lea Partnership, said: “As a charity we strive to service both beneficiaries and the wider community. We are committed to making a difference and aim to improve the self-esteem and status of adults with learning difficulties, helping them to play a full part in the local community. We appointed Refresh PR as it was evident the team is passionate about the work they do and are keen to make a difference.


“We were also very impressed with the work that Refresh PR had completed with other charities, representing their commitment to supporting social enterprise projects. It’s an exciting time at the charity, and we’re very much looking forward to working alongside Refresh PR to help communicate these to our stakeholders.”


Laura Mashiter, managing director at Refresh PR, said: “The Walton Lea Partnership is a worthwhile cause and fantastic charity; after just one visit the team was completely bought into everything it offers.


“It’s important that the public is aware of projects such as the Walton Lea Partnership in order for a continuing growth in visitors, volunteers and donations. This is where we can make a difference and ensure that the Walton Lea Partnership, which is an asset to Warrington and the wider community, gets the recognition and footfall it deserves.’


Refresh PR has also made the Outstanding Small Consultancy shortlist for the 2014 CIPR North West PRide Awards, which is the region’s premier public relations awards scheme. The results will be announced at a ceremony on 19 November.
