Farrows and TimeNorfolk

TimeNorfolk (previously Pregnancy Choices Norfolk) provides free, confidential support to women and their partners who have experienced a pregnancy loss through miscarriage, termination or still birth. They also provide care for women who are facing an unplanned or complicated pregnancy or have other pregnancy related issues such as pre- or post-natal depression or infertility. Operating in Norfolk since 1997, TimeNorfolk offers time, compassion, information and practical support at the point of need through a team of dedicated, trained volunteers.

Farrows is a one of the longest-standing (38 years) creative agencies in the same ownership worldwide. It has a Royal Warrant to Her Majesty the Queen and a portfolio of household names as clients.

Project summary – TimeNorfolk applied to ProHelp for support in creating a fundraising leaflet. It wanted a graphic design company to put together a creative and eye-catching leaflet which would encourage its supporters and clients to take part in fundraising activities to support the charity’s work.

As a small charity with four part-time staff, TimeNorfolk does not have an in-house graphic designer. They rely on their supporters and volunteers to help raise the vital funds they need in order to cover the cost of providing support to those following pregnancy loss.

Their previous fundraising leaflet was created using Microsoft Word and the organisation felt that a more appealing leaflet would encourage more people to join their fundraising efforts. Farrows understood the work they did and why the leaflet was needed. TimeNorfolk is very pleased with the quality of the design work – the leaflet is in keeping with the rest of their publications, but also has a fresh feel to it and will be a key tool in the charity’s fundraising strategy.

Impact – The project delivered:

  • We benefited from a professional service from an agency that listened to our needs and gave us advice
  • We have a high quality leaflet in line with our branding
  • A professionally produced fundraising leaflet will allow us to promote our fundraising efforts with confidence

“As a small charity, we rely on volunteers to support us in our fundraising activities. This new leaflet, which is both professional and appealing, will attract more people to work with us. We couldn’t have afforded such a high quality leaflet without ProHelp’s support.” Ruth Kettle, Fundraising & Events Coordinator

“The Directors of Farrows are all parents, over several generations, and therefore TimeNorfolk is particularly close to our hearts. We are very happy to support such a fantastic charity.” Will Farrow, Creative Director, Farrows
