A team from Suffolk-based PR agency Genesis PR stepped up to the 14-mile challenge and completed the Orwell Walk last week, raising vital funds to support the work of Ipswich-based charity Families in Need (FIND).

Completing the Orwell Walk, organised annually by the Rotary Club of Ipswich East, is part of Genesis PR’s schedule of fundraising activities for FIND, which is the agency’s nominated charity of the year.

Genesis PR director Penny Arbuthnot was part of the team who completed the walk.

She said: “FIND is an amazing charity which helps families and individuals affected by poverty, providing a lifeline for many people across Suffolk.” Genesis is also offering its PR skills free of charge to FIND throughout 2017 and intends to help the charity with its key project, which is the launch of a county-wide campaign to raise funds for a new food bank premises and furniture warehouse for in Ipswich.
