“Cause UK are currently providing much needed PR support to us and helping us to achieve our ambitions for the venue. Over the past 12 months they have enabled us to raise the profile of our fundraising campaign but also and even more critically raise the profile or our work as an arts centre and the vital role we play in our community.
I would highly recommend Clair and the Cause UK team to anyone working in the arts or indeed any sector who are looking for high quality and efficient PR services.” Helen Ball, CEO of The Civic
“Clair and Ann at Cause UK created a real media buzz for the Official Opening of How Stean Gorge’s cantilevered glass extension. We gained national and regional coverage in both digital and printed press. They also organised excellent national media profile and quality photography with Charlotte Graham, from which we will no doubt be reaping the rewards for months to come.” Hayley Gray, How Stean Gorge.
“Their work always yields the results we require. We see them as an extension of our team and their copy is knowledgeable and their ideas innovative…Our profile has been raised significantly since working with Cause UK. In 2016, our press achieved over £3.7m in print media value. We work closely with Cause UK to create bespoke evaluations for donors and sponsors which supports the required outputs for our campaigns. I would recommend Cause UK unreservedly.”
– Sharon Canavar, CEO, Harrogate International Festivals
“We have worked with them for a number of years, on a number of different projects, but predominantly they have supported with PR, writing copy and running events. Our experience is wholly positive and they really helped us to build a national profile (something that we had previously really struggled with), which helped us to secure awards, attract new Clients, bring in different Investors and really move on to a new level. I’d recommend them without hesitation.”
– Matt Smith, CEO, Key Fund
“I have worked closely with Cause UK for many years now. They understand our sector, they understand the media, they understand QED, and they understand me. It’s rare to have that synergy, but they are truly committed. The journalistic aspect of their media work has been invaluable. Their responsive, thoughtful, well-crafted writing is always on message; they never fail to deliver to either quickly respond to media or come up with pro-active, creative ideas. I have no hesitation recommending Cause UK, in fact, I’d urge you to contact them.”
– Deputy CEO of QED Foundation, Adeeba Malik CBE
“Thank you for showing us the art of the possible”
– Matt Shardlow, Chief Executive Buglife
“I immediately contacted two people who I knew had the talent and tenacity to help secure the book. Clair Chadwick, a tireless local charity campaigner, and Stephen Joll, a philanthropic local businessman, were as inspired as I was. They worked like Trojans petitioning for funds.”
– Selina Scott, Broadcaster, Dickens Gift to Yorkshire
“I have had various dealings with Cause UK during my work as chief feature writer at the Yorkshire Post and more recently during my freelance writing for newspapers, magazines and others. Because of their wide pool of skills and experience, the team have a very keen eye (and ear) for a story that will make the news pages or is suitable to fill a feature page slot. They respond quickly, have a comprehensive contacts book, never fail to come up with case studies that fit the bill – and they are warm, responsive people to deal with.”
– Sheena Hastings, Journalist
“Thanks Clair for another outstanding Media call for Sunday’s #europeanunison event. Your efforts are invaluable to our business!”
– Melvin Besbrode, Director of Besbrode Pianos
“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.”
– Susan Littlemore, former Communications and Marketing Manager, Riverside (2008-2016)
