Grayling steers a course for Jubilee Sailing Trust
GRAYLING STEERS A COURSE FOR JUBILEE SAILING TRUST
It’s all hands on deck at Southampton-based public relations consultancy Grayling, since the agency selected the Jubilee Sailing Trust as its 'Charity of the Year’. The leading communications consultancy is volunteering its time and expertise to promote the Southampton-based charity.
The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) is a registered charity that owns and operates two tall ships - Lord Nelson and Tenacious - the only two tall ships in the world designed and built to enable people of all physical abilities to sail side-by-side as equals.
"There are two elements to the JST's mission: to overcome prejudices and misconceptions about disability amongst able-bodied people and to enable people with a disability to show to themselves and to others what they are capable of in an inclusive environment. The JST builds bridges of awareness and understanding using specially designed tall ships to break down barriers," said Alex Lochrane - CEO of Jubilee Sailing Trust.
Caroline Searle, Director and Head of Grayling’s Southampton office, said: "We are looking forward to working with the Jubilee Sailing Trust to help to build its profile across the region. We will also undertake fund raising on their behalf with planned activities including an abseil down the Spinnaker Tower in May and 'It’s a Knock Out’ in June."
Grayling is an international public relations consultancy, with over 70 offices in 40 countries. Grayling specialises in consumer and lifestyle brands, property, corporate and business to business public relations, as well as issue management and public-sector campaigning. Evidence of Grayling’s PR strength as a company can be found in the numerous awards the company has won over the years and the quality and depth of its client portfolio.
