We were delighted to receive a testimonial for the five years we worked with Riverside Care and Support services, specifically around their services for vulnerable veterans.
Over the years we worked on many campaigns for Riverside, but we loved our work with celebrity chef Rosemary Shrager, on the Veterans Artisan Bakery.
Susan Littlemore, former Communications and Marketing Manager, Riverside (2008-2016):
“I first started working with Ann and Clair at Cause UK five years ago in 2012 when Clair helped raise the funds to set up a therapeutic bakery at one of Riverside’s schemes for homeless veterans.
They became a trusted extension of our PR team, providing specific media support on our veterans’ services across the UK, as well as copywriting for our website, newsletters, and influencing key stakeholders. As a result, our MoD area manager was invited to a Remembrance event at Westminster with Cause UK.
Cause UK always went above and beyond, creating high impact media campaigns and bringing on board celebrity patrons, such as Rosemary Shrager. As well as BBC Look North, Calendar news, regional magazines and newspapers, we were featured on BBC Radio 4’s Food Programme, BBC Inside Out, and Rosemary appeared on national TV shows including The Chase, Big Star Little Star, Tipping Point and Celebrity Antiques Road Show winning over £17k for our veterans.
Their journalism skills ensured emotive storytelling, and they always dealt sensitively interviewing vulnerable veterans for case studies or articles, incorporating powerful photography and film into their media campaigns.
I can’t recommend Cause UK highly enough for their conscientious approach, creativity, and genuine passion for our work with veterans.
They helped put our services on the national map, positioning us as leaders in the field. During the five years I worked with they never failed to deliver meaningful PR and positive media coverage.”
