Money for charities and great causes across the UK

Here at EV. we love working with charities – having helped plan the Harry Moseley 2013 Ball, doing the PR for Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer and helping out with SIFA Fireside in Digbeth.

With that in mind, we were excited to hear that the CAW (Creatives at Work) Foundation has

Launching Let’s Talk Drink with Dudley Council and ORB

We had an exciting week this week, working with Dudley Council, Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group and ORB to launch ‘Let”s Talk Drink‘.

ORB brought this idea to life
