Charity PR

PR Work

Sarah took on the voluntary role of press officer for Birmingham-based charity Community Montessori when it started in early 2001.

Her work for the charity included publicising its work by sending out press releases, organising displays, such as a month-long stand at Birmingham Central Library, and taking part in open day events to raise the public’s awareness about the Montessori method of education and Community Montessori’s projects in Birmingham. She was also involved in researching the need for potential pre-education schemes and identifying sources of funding available to help set up such projects.

Sarah also has some experience of more general charity management and organisation, where the skills developed through her journalistic and PR work have been supplemented by the courses Sarah participated in while working for Community Montessori. These included training in fund-raising, the role of committees and general management of the charity.
She was also responsible for designing and setting up the Community Montessori website.

Since then, Sarah has been active in promoting her own publications. She also produced newsletters and was responsible for obtaining press coverage for St Peter’s Pre-School, Droitwich, from January 2006 to July 2007 and took on the role of pre-school marketing officer (including press coverage) from June 2008 to July 2009.
