I worked with Sally through her engagement with Brighter Communities Worldwide when Sally ran a short PR campaign for us around a fundraising Ball and visitors we had from Kenya at the same time. Sally did a great job at short notice to get maximum coverage for the organisation and the work we do. She succeeded in getting print media and radio coverage both locally and nationally. Sally was a pleasure to work with and delivered exactly as she said she would do. She was 100% committed to the job in hand.
