Kidscan retains Manchester agency after six-way pitch
Manchester-based agency Rumpus PR has been reappointed by children’s cancer research charity Kidscan following a competitive six-way pitch.
Kidscan, which has worked with Rumpus since 2013, has been instrumental in funding a range of groundbreaking research projects, with the sole purpose of providing new and improved treatments for children with cancer.
The team at Rumpus PR, which developed several new ideas to increase Kidscan’s visibility both regionally and across the UK, will support the charity across events, awareness campaigns, and vital fundraising activity.
Rumpus is also increasing Kidscan’s presence within the sector media, ensuring the charity sector and those affected by childhood cancer understand Kidscan’s position as a leading authority on the disease.
The reappointment follows a strong growth period for Rumpus, including a move to larger premises in Altrincham.
Gareth Clements, commercial director at Rumpus PR, said: “We have developed a fantastic relationship with Kidscan, and supporting a charity that is doing so much to improve the lives of children with cancer is a real honour for Rumpus. The team has developed some brilliantly creative and hard-hitting ideas that we intend will propel awareness of Kidscan’s work to the next level.”
Lowri Turner, director of development at Kidscan, added: “Rumpus has consistently delivered on its aims for Kidscan over the past three years, and this year presented a fantastic strategy that will boost awareness of our successful research projects and secure our position as experts in our field. We are delighted to be working with Rumpus once again, and anticipate another successful year ahead.”
