Want to secure £10,000 of marketing support for your charity?

Reech and Reward Logo

It’s that time of year again! Applications for Reech and Reward, our very own Charity of the Year initiative founded in 2022, are now open. We’re offering £10,000 of our marketing services, promotional support and time to help one Shropshire-based charity achieve their goals.

At Reech, we’re proud to have a history of investing our expertise to help businesses and charities across Shropshire thrive. Each year, we receive many requests from local organisations looking for our help with strategic marketing, positioning, branding, graphic design, websites, photography, video, content – whatever you need to amplify your organisation.

Am I Eligible?

We’re opening up applications to charities and good causes across Shropshire. To be eligible, charities must have headquarters based in Shropshire and be prepared to pitch their ideas to our senior management team here at Reech, detailing how the £10,000 of support could benefit their charity and help to meet their objectives.

For 2024, three additional charities will be shortlisted for a 50/50 match-funded project, each receiving up to £10,000. This means more opportunities for local charities to benefit from Reech’s expertise and support.

How Do I Apply?

To apply for Reech and Reward, all you need to do is complete an application form. You’ll need to detail what your charity’s purpose is, your objectives for the next 12 months and how you think Reech can help you – so start getting your thoughts together.

Perhaps you’re looking to redevelop your website, launch a high-impact social media strategy or create a brand awareness campaign to attract and reach your audience. Or maybe you need our help with lots of things. If so, we’d love to hear from you.

Shrewsbury Food Hub

Need some inspiration? Last year, we had the pleasure of working with the Shrewsbury Food Hub as part of Reech and Reward. We supported the Hub team with marketing strategy, website design and development, branding, photography, video and email marketing, really getting under the hood of their charity and feeling like an extension of the team.

Since working with us through Reech and Reward in 2022, the Shrewsbury Food Hub has been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service – a testament to the incredible work The Hub does daily and a product of having their message amplified and marketed in the Reech way. Read more about the project here.

Brightstar Boxing

We’re thrilled to also be a part of the Brightstar Boxing story, another local Shropshire charity that was the worthy Reech and Reward 2023 winner. Brightstar has gone from strength to strength, availing of Reech’s expertise through a refreshed visual branding identity, new engaging brand messaging and positioning, website and UX audit as well as a soon-to-be-released emotionally charged video that captures Brightstar’s mission and resonates with all stakeholders.

Reeching Further for 2024

With so many exciting opportunities to look forward to for local charities in 2024, we are holding a Reech & Reward launch event at Severn Hospice’s Shrewsbury headquarters on April 18th. Keep an eye on our channels for specifics and be sure to pencil it into your diary!

Until then, if you’ve got a project in mind, then we’d love to hear from you. Apply today or get in touch with the team with any questions.
