East of England Region

PR Support

Hello …. My name is Ray Hardisty and I am one of the u3a’s new Media
and PR Advisers working in the regions to help and assist u3a members
with all types of communication.
My patch is the six counties of the East of England and I look forward
to getting to know you all.
A former local newspaper journalist I come from the school of ‘been there
and done that’ so any request to me will get straightforward, practical help.
I have a wealth of templates covering newsletter, posters, flyers, directories,
press releases and all manner of outreach bits and pieces that are all
available for other u3as to use.
I can also offer guidance on such topics as social media, branding and U3A Day.
My assistance comes as I serve as the Publicity Officer of my own
Witham and District U3A where 2021 will involve a range of activities to
ensure the pandemic does not suck members away.
Email me by using this link Ray Hardisty - Regional PR Advisor
If you leave me your telephone number I will call you back.

Channel for u3a news
PLEASE think of me for any of your u3a activities of possible interest
to others because one of my first tasks will be to launch a regional
newsletter …. and I have the contacts for national u3a newsletters
and the Third Age Magazine.
