Working with me
As different forms of communication, public relations, fundraising and copywriting all share one unifying principle: words matter.
Whether you're a charity looking to improve awareness, attract new supporters and raise income, a startup aiming to make a name for yourself within your sector, or simply an organisation with messaging in need of a little finessing, I can help.
It's my belief that a modest budget should never be an obstacle to achieving great results, so I keep things simple, transparent and affordable at all times, with flexible terms and no hidden costs.
Communicate who you are, what you stand for and what you can offer. I'm committed to getting the best possible media coverage without compromising on the quality of your message and integrity of your brand.
I can help you share good news, raise your profile and cement your position within your sector or field.
Ensure your charity is robust and able to weather the unforeseen. I've experience in everything from F2F to major donors, but specialise in grants and trusts.
Whether supporting or leading your fundraising efforts, I can devise and implement clear, actionable strategies to help your organisation diversify and develop its income.
Trust & grant fundraising
Improve your organisation's ability to say what you want, how you want. Getting the wording exactly right can be agonising at times, but I write a mean sentence and can help you see the wood for the trees.
They may be my words, but rest assured it will be your message coming through loud and clear.

Organisations I've worked with
We deliver 64 sessions to over 200 people in their homes or Care homes across Surrey. We have 4 Vans which our staff use daily to get to and from each session. In October 2019 one of these vans was stolen, it was later found stripped of everything and burnt out. Due to our reliance on this van we started a crowdfunder campaign which we hoped we would be able to raise enough to replace it.
Rich volunteered to help us with the marketing of this campaign, his offer of help came at a time when we really needed it, as we did not have to time to concentrate fully on increasing the exposure of what had happened and encouraging people to donate. With Rich’s help we had multiple interviews with local and regional press outlets increasing awareness of what had happened to us, which lead to us not only raising enough to buy a new van but also funds to be able to run it for a year. Without Rich's help this would not have been possible.
Working with Rich from twofirst has been invaluable to our fledgling charity which was struggling to really gain momentum during the covid-19 pandemic. Rich injected new life and excitement into CareDogs by writing an engaging and thorough press release for us, as well as, advising and consulting us on how we could make our vision and mission clearer. We've been thrilled with the interest and following we've gained from his network.
