Happy were delighted to be able to ‘Pay for A Day’ again this year on the 21st May, helping Blackpool Samaritans with their fundraising campaign.

 

 

It costs The Samaritans £147 a day just to keep going. They receive more than 2,000 calls a month and the Blackpool branch alone deals with on average, 70 telephone calls, five emails and six text messages plus face to face contacts. The money raised through the 'Pay for a day' campaign enables them to have a Samaritan always available for callers, however they choose to contact them.

Blackpool Samaritans have around 70 volunteers of all ages working for free to listen to those who find themselves in a crisis. Volunteers do not offer advice or tell callers what to do, but they do provide emotional support to anyone who is struggling to cope or is in need of somewhere to explore their feelings. 

During this difficult time Happy believes it is crucial to look after our mental health, now, more than ever which is why we’re so proud to be part of this campaign. Kindness can be shown in many ways so we could think of no better way to uphold our commitment to helping our community and give something back.

Speaking about the sponsorship Karen Lambert, Chief Happy, commented: 

“We’re delighted to support the campaign for a second year and thank The Samaritans for providing such a valuable service to our community. Mental wellbeing is very close to my heart. It’s good to see awareness of mental health rising in our society and in our workplaces; how a person thinks and feels, in my opinion, is just as important as their physical health”.

Director Angie Pascoe said:

“Thank you so much for thinking about the branch at this time, I can't tell you how much we appreciate your offer to contribute again to our 'Pay for a Day' campaign.  These are such difficult times for everyone and your support is even more welcome now, ensuring volunteers can be there for our callers. Once again, sincere thanks from all the branch, this really does mean a lot to us."

Social Media

All the tweets and posts in the world won’t help generate leads unless there’s some strategic thinking behind what you’re doing.

We’ll help define the right social media strategy for you, so that you’re on the right platforms, saying the right things to the right people at the right time to generate the right leads.

Design & Brand Building

Marketing is bit like those huge, swirling flocks of starlings you see from time to time. Individually your brochure, email, ad, meme or gif may not change the world.

But when you join them together and ensure they’re all heading in the same direction, you have the power to stop people in their tracks.

We design communications that help build a consistent brand and convert more leads to sales.

Websites

Your website can generate leads in so many ways. Informed content. Strong calls to action. A simple, natural journey from ‘Hi there!’ to ‘Buy now’.

Yet websites are never ‘done’. They need to keep evolving to keep pace with your customers’ expectations, so we’ll be with you for the long haul to keep tweaking, refining and growing your site – and to deliver the PPC campaigns that help drive traffic towards it.

Because when your website keeps working to understand and speak to your audience, you’ve got more chance of converting.

PR & Content

There’s a knack to ensuring your business is seen in the right places at the right time. We’ll build your PR profile across the mix of channels that’s right for you (from press to social media to events) and use our contacts to spread the word.

So when your customers are ready to buy, it’ll be your brand they think of first.
