Event Details

Lapwing Films: Making the news – how to get your charity on TV.

This workshop will help small charities to pitch and communicate their story or campaign to get maximum broadcast coverage. Attendees will explore the tops tips for small charities with limited resources and learn some tricks of the trade.

  • Target audience and reach - which broadcasters to target.

The trainers will be using examples of Lapwing’s work with SeeAbility and Walk the Walk, as well as general news coverage for demonstration purposes.

There will also be the opportunity to have ask lots general questions and feedback at the end of the session.
