Joanne Wearne, Head of Development at the University of Hertfordshire, needed a copywriter with experience of writing fundraising material so got in touch. Since then we’ve worked on a number of projects, including writing the content for the University’s new legacy brochure, drafting a university-wide case for support and producing the content for the latest donor report.
Joanne said: ‘Eve is the consummate professional and her input into crafting the vision and mission for fundraising at the University has been invaluable. Eve’s breadth of experience means she is quickly able to cut through complex documents and turn them into compelling materials which have clarity and real meaning. Our messaging is now more focused, more accessible and more enjoyable to read thanks to Eve’s work. I would have no hesitation in recommending Eve, she has been a breath of fresh air.’
The University of the West of England (UWE) was planning a large fundraising campaign. The team were at the initial planing stages when they asked us to help develop some key documents. They had put together a rather dry and business-like case for support and wanted it to be more emotive, vital and punchy. The document, which was to be used at strategic meetings, had to highlight UWE’s unique strengths, outline its ambitions for the future and inspire people to support the campaign.
UWE’s role in business life in the Bristol region (it’s one of the biggest educators in the area and home to one of the largest business schools in the UK) was a central part of the campaign message. As well as weaving this into the case for support, we wrote a briefing document outlining the role that UWE could play in the future of Bristol business.
We worked with Samantha Dunbar, Policy Adviser at UWE, on this campaign. With the project finished and signed off, she wrote: ‘Thank you so much for all of your high-quality work and ‘can-do’ attitude.’
