Business4Better 2013 Highlights Community Benefits Of Business And Voluntary Sector Partnerships
LONDON, September 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Brixton teenagers sharing musical expertise in Senegal, an app for South Londoners to monitor police stop-and-search activity, and how music helps with mental illness are only three of the stories that would have gone untold had PR Newswire not been inspired to partner with two local charities.

At Leader's Quest last year Margaret Pierre-Jarrett from High Trees Community Trust and Tim Brown from Raw Material left a lasting impression on Leask, and he was struck by their personal drive and determination. "They were doing amazing work," he said. "However, they needed more visibility, which is where PR Newswire could help."

Probably not," he said. "What was needed was assistance from people willing, in their own time, to look at what both organisations were doing, spot the story potential and create the content," he said. Amongst the stories that got told are:
