Advertisement In its first year, Bright One Communications has recruited over 30 volunteers and worked with eight organisations, including Refugee Week, Junction49, Pants to Poverty, Pixel Project, Savvy Kids and What’s Up Information.Bright One reports high demand from charities needing support from its professional volunteers, so expects to grow over the next year.Bright One’s website, redeveloped by Dharmafly, who specialise in web development for social change, is designed to make it easier for third sector organisations to get support in their communications activities, and for volunteers to find out more about how they can get involved.It includes a free resources section, which provides charity and voluntary organisations with templates for press releases and information on how to plan and implement the basic PR activities.“The first people we have to thank for the organisation’s success so far are the volunteers,” said Ben Matthews, Founder of Bright One. “Their time, energy and dedication show not only that they believe in the projects they are working on, but they also believe in Bright One’s vision of helping charity organisations who couldn’t afford PR otherwise”.www.brightone.org.ukcenter_img Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies PR and media relations  24 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 25 September 2009 | Newslast_img
