Rake Mark Web Design & Staffordshire PKD Charity Group are delighted today to announce the launch of the new Staffordshire PKD Website. The aim of this new website is to promote awareness of the Disease PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) within Staffordshire and to assist the main PKD Charity in raising must needed funds for research. Marie Thorpe, a member of the Staffordshire PKD Group, approached Rake Mark Web Design about helping to set up a new website for the charity. Sarah Brassington, a Staffordshire Web Designer from Rake Mark, quickly set to task, coming up with new web design that would fit with the existing Logos, colours and design that the main Charity had already created.
Being able to update their own pages was really important, so Rake Mark designed the website using a popular and easy to use content management system that allows Marie and the group to update their own web pages.
Within a few weeks Sarah had come up with the website design with a new modern look and feel and implemented the new content managed website for the Staffordshire Group.
The new website can be found at http://www.staffordshirepkd.co.uk/ and contains information about PKD itself, useful links and resources and a news stream that will be updated by the group to keep you aware of any upcoming events. Sarah Brassington said “Marie is really passionate about raising awareness of PKD and I was so happy to be able to help where I could. I hope and believe that the newly formed Staffordshire PKD group is going to be a massive success”
“I went to the Rake Mark office with a collection tin hoping for some spare change really and it kind of went from there. Sarah listened to what I had to say about the charity that I was raising funds for and offered to sponsor a micro site for us. PKD isn’t that well known about so we are just thrilled that we can now offer some valuable information and direct people to care and advice and of course hopefully raise must needed funds for the cause. It really is so great that Rake Mark has given their time to do this for us, can’t thank them enough” says Marie Thorpe.
Can Rake Mark Web Design Help Your Staffordshire Charity or Organisation?
In the US they call it Pro Bono, at Rake Mark we call it giving something back to our local community.
About 8 out of 10 of our customers come from Staffordshire and without these great people supporting us we wouldn’t have a business. Sarah Brassington believes that giving something back is really important.
“Its local business people from local communities that we work with so supporting the communities that support us is really important.”
