Norwich-based Nurture Marketing is aiming to raise vital awareness for local homelessness and poverty charity, The Feed with a series of new bitesize marketing workshops for small businesses in Norfolk.
The marketing company is running the courses as part of its pledge to help reduce poverty, hunger and homelessness in the city by supporting not-for-profit The Feed during its first year of operation.
The start-up, which supports small businesses with marketing support, mentoring and training, has pledged to provide The Feed social enterprise with £1,000 of support via equipment donations, event room hire, catering and equipment hire, pro bono marketing services and corporate fundraising.
Rechenda Smith, Founder of Nurture Marketing, said: "The cause of homelessness has been close to my heart ever since my first ever job back in 2004 for a Norwich homeless charity. With the cost of living crisis hitting many people in many different ways across our city, I wanted to find a way to give back.
"The work that The Feed is doing to fight food poverty and homelessness in Norwich is more vital than ever. I've just launched Nurture Marketing and choosing The Feed as the charity of the year was a no-brainer. I hope the courses will be popular with small businesses in the area. A bonus will be to get them through the doors of The Feed, to see the wonderful work they do first hand."
The Feed is a social enterprise preventing poverty, hunger and homelessness in Norwich through employability projects, a social supermarket and 1:1 support. The Feed runs five cafes, and a successful catering enterprise.
Nurture Marketing has already donated a new washing machine to The Feed, has booked the Sandys-Winsch community room at The Feed's Waterloo Park Pavilion Café for a series of bitesize marketing courses and has some festive fundraising plans up its sleeve.
Chris Elliott, Marketing Manager at The Feed added: "We are continuing to expand the support we provide for people in Norwich this year, particularly for those facing food poverty. To have the support of the business community and organisations like Nurture Marketing is a key part of making this a success. We are looking forward to working with Rechenda over the coming months."
The courses run from 9am to 11am, with free parking at Waterloo Park, Norwich and cost £30 a ticket. For more information on the bitesize marketing courses from Nurture Marketing at the Feed, and to book, please click here.
