Living Streets is thrilled to have been nominated for the second year running in the national Charity Times Awards for ‘PR team of the year’.
The charity is selected for its PR team’s work to promote walking and campaign for better streets across the UK so that people of all ages can reap the many benefits of walking more.
The nomination also recognises the team’s effort during Living Streets’ National Walking Month in May when they achieved over 1400 pieces of coverage in their campaign to encourage people to walk for 20 minutes a day and rate their walk – helping to build a picture of UK streets.
Living Streets has had a range of campaign successes recently, including an increase in the number of children walking to school, the first-ever Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, Cycling and Walking Commissioners appointed in London and Greater Manchester, and a commitment to pedestrianise Oxford Street. The PR team has been instrumental in promoting these campaigns and working alongside colleagues to ensure such positive outcomes.
The Charity Times Awards continue to be the pre-eminent celebration of best practice in the UK charity and not-for-profit sector. Now in their 18th year, the awards are run by Charity Times Magazine - the leading title for UK non-profit professionals.
