Following the launch of ‘Pitching for Partnership’ in August this year, ten UK-based charities were shortlisted for the opportunity to make a short presentation to a judging panel made up of experts in the communications, healthcare and charity sectors, at Just:: Health PR’s offices on 11th November 2010.

Judge and ex-Sun Health Editor, Jacqui Thornton, said:

“The standard of the finalists’ entries was extremely high with each project addressing a real need, making it a very difficult decision. The chosen winners demonstrated well thought-out communications strategies and exciting tactical ideas, presenting clear and exciting opportunities for collaboration with Just:: Health PR.”
