Gloucestershire charities of all shapes and sizes can now apply for a unique opportunity to be SoGlos's next nominated Charity of the Year.
Celebrating 17 years of SoGlos in 2024, we're actively seeking a local organisation to become our new official Charity of the Year, with a year of editorial, marketing and advertising support from Gloucestershire's leading media brand in store for the chosen charity.
The year 2023 has seen SoGlos support the incredible Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice with a bespoke, complimentary advertising campaign and content coverage from our journalists, dedicated to spreading the word about the wonderful work it does.
As well as helping Sue Ryder's message reach and engage a combined 300,000-strong monthly audience, SoGlos raised over £3,000 in one night for the charity at the inaugural Gloucestershire Business Awards Golden Ticket Giveaway.
The SoGlos team also laced up their trainers to take part in Run Cheltenham on behalf of the charity, further raising its profile and generating even more valuable funds.
Next year's Charity of the Year will benefit from similar opportunities, including a bespoke promotional campaign, social media support and our own fundraising efforts — we're always up for a challenge!
Previous charities to have been supported through SoGlos's annual initiative include Hope for Tomorrow, Cheltenham Animal Shelter and The Family Haven.
To apply, please email a brief description of what your charity is all about to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 1 December 2023 — including details of any specific projects or events you have planned for 2024 which we could potentially help you shout about.
All applications will be put to the full SoGlos team to collectively decide on our 2024 Charity of the Year. We will inform the chosen charity on Friday 8 December 2023.
