A few thoughts and ponderings from the Simpler PR team that we just couldn’t keep to ourselves…

Children in Need and the rise of online

You may have noticed a certain yellow bear with a polka dot bandana popping up more often in the news and on the high street recently. Yes, this Friday Britain’s favourite bear; Pudsey, will be gracing our TV screens once again for Children in Need 2015. The first Children in Need telethon took place in 1980.

At Simpler PR we like to get involved as much as possible – and although none of us are likely to ever hit the podium or raise a trophy we love a race, match or tour as much as anyone.
