About the Annual Whittingham Riddell Charity Update
On 5th November, Reech attended the Annual Whittingham Riddell Charity Update with our MD, Rob Hughes, joining the Whittingham Riddell team as a guest speaker for the event.
The Annual Charity Update, held at Shropshire Education and Conference Centre located at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, is designed for charity trustees, financial directors, chief executives and professional intermediaries involved in the not-for-profit sector to provide an update on a series of topical issues.
The half-day event included presentations throughout the morning which concluded with lunch, providing the opportunity to network with peers from other charities.

As guest speaker, Rob Hughes presented to an audience of 90 people representing over 60 charities from the local community. His presentation of cancer charity Lingen Davies, titled ‘How professional marketing transformed Lingen Davies’ brand’ highlighted the amazing work we have created with the charity over the last 3 years, both digitally and printed.

More About Charity Client, Lingen Davies
We were delighted to have been appointed the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund’s marketing partner back in 2016 and since then we have developed a new digital strategy as well as branding and a website. During the Annual Charity Update, Rob Hughes presented Lingen Davies’ 2019 annual review that gives a thorough and concise outlay of how the charity has helped the local community during the year. Our design team created something visually beautiful and engaging to the audience.
Previously, we have actively supported Lingen Davies in a number of charity events and fundraisers including their Ruby Appeal to celebrate charity’s 40th birthday.
Lingen Davies awarded our team with The Business Supporters Award 2018-2019 that recognises the support and hard-work provided to them.
Our MD, Rob Hughes, commented on the event:
“It was a great honour to present to so many people from so many charities in our local community, particularly being able to emphasise our work with Lingen Davies and the incredible support they provide to people in Shropshire. The presentation gave in-depth detail into the marketing support they have received from us since becoming partners back in 2016. I look forward to working with them on more exciting projects in the future.
Not only was it great to highlight the work created, the Annual Charity Event was also a particularly rewarding experience to be involved alongside other guest speakers, trustees and attendees of a host of different charities that are continuing to provide support to our community.”
