Calling all causes: Battenhall’s birthday present is back to you


Since launching Battenhall we have been trying to disrupt the traditional agency model, a little bit at a time. We are about to turn one year old, and to celebrate, we want to give something back.

As part of the way we work here, we spend 20% of our time on non-client causes. Anything goes, from R&D on new services, to pro bono client work and PR and social media help for charities. We are fortunate enough to count some charities as clients, too, including WaterAid and the International Aids / HIV Alliance. It's fair to say that making a difference makes us tick.

For our first birthday, which is on 8th March, we will be pooling our resources and putting a month of our time to one big, fat good cause.

This is where you come in. If you have something coming up that you need our help with, we would like you to let us know. If could be something tiny and you would just like a bit of advice. Or maybe it's an upcoming mega-campaign, and you need a team mobilised to help out. Perhaps you just want to pop in and say hello and bend someone's ear. Well, we're all ears.

This is a call for good causes, charities, campaigns, whatever you term yourself, to get in touch. Email us on and we'll come back to you with next steps. Let us know what kind of help it is you need and we'll do the rest.

We'll spend the next two weeks waiting for you to get in touch, then on 10th March we'll update this post with what we'll be doing.

Thanks for reading this far and we look forward to hearing from you!
