We are gearing up for a year of charity fundraising, starting with the ‘I’m a Precky Fan, Get Me Out of Here!’ challenge for the Steve Prescott Foundation, which kicks off on Sunday 30th April 2017.
Why Steve Prescott Foundation?
Here at Tecmark, we have strong ties to the Steve Prescott Foundation, having taken part in several fundraising activities over the past few years.
In 2015, our Managing Director Richard Heyes, raised £9,000 by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Account manager AJ Mussell has also taken part in a number of events as well.
The Steve Prescott Foundation is a charity established to provide funds for The Christie cancer hospital in Manchester and Try Assist (formerly the Rugby League Benevolent Fund) which aims to support rugby league players whose lives are affected by serious injuries sustained while playing the game.
Steve Prescott played in top-level rugby league before being diagnosed with Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP), a rare form of cancer, at the age of 32. Over the next seven years up to his death, he organised countless fund raising campaigns for his charity. Now, four years after his death, the Steve Prescott Foundation is in its millionth pound year.
The ‘I’m a Precky Fan, Get Me Out of Here!’ challenge
The relationship between Tecmark and The Steve Prescott Foundation continues this spring as digital PR apprentice Sarah Pearce has signed up to take part in ‘I’m a Precky Fan, Get Me Out of Here!’, a 48-hour challenge similar to the ITV hit reality show.
Sarah is limbering up for the challenges that include Buried Alive, Eat to Survive and Solitary Confinement!
Will she do it? Well, this is where you and your business can help.
To take part in this good cause, Sarah needs to raise enough money for the charity in order to take part.
Sarah’s fundraising page is here – she needs to raise a minimum of £750 before 1st April 2017. With your help, Sarah hopes to smash this target.
Tecmark has chosen to use Wonderful.org as a fundraising page for this cause. Wonderful.org guarantee that the charity you support receives EVERY penny from the sponsors – as well as Gift Aid. They are a non-profit organization, nobody takes a salary and through the generosity of their corporate sponsors, they cover ALL the costs associated with fundraising activities – including card-processing fees.

Happy New Year everyone! As we all know the transition into the new year is a time for reflection, hope and new beginnings. However, it often brings with it a descent into copywriting madness, with god-awful clichés often popping up out of nowhere – yes we’re looking at you #NewYearNewMe crowd.
When it comes to building a decent website, content really is still king. The key to creating decent copy that not only draws readers to your site, but also gets your brand message across, is to make it compelling. You want to create something that’s actually worth reading – not just a scrambled up splurge […]
While it’s good to have words on your site, but copywriting isn’t just about filling up the page with words and moving on to the next task. There’s so much more to copywriting than hammering the keyboard for eight hours a day. Fulfilling the task requires a lot more than hitting the word count.
