A quirky, recent project was supporting John Jones Art.
An award-winning, local body painter, John sought help in an attempt to achieve his dream of reaching the World Bodypaint Festival in Austria in July 2019.
Once homeless and jobless, John turned his life around and has gone on to gain recognition in the field of body art – where artwork is painted directly onto the human skin.
John’s story is a fascinating one of trials, tribulations and overcoming the odds. He was seeking crowdfunding to reach the competition for the first time, and needed media coverage to raise his profile.
Working together on a press release, we achieved coverage in the Yorkshire Post, Yorkshire Evening Post, got thousands of hits on social media, and drew the attention of BBC Yorkshire who set up a great film about the adventure of a lifetime.
