Festival Medical Services are ‘not for profit’ registered medical charity which delivers high-quality event medical services at some of the UK’s largest festivals and gatherings. They supports a number of medical and humanitarian projects at home and around the world. All of these projects are nominated by our members.
Last month they WON our Q2 competition gaining them £500 which enables them to increase the size of the grants that they award to worthwhile causes. For example, it will help FMS help provide metal consumables for surgery on disabled people in Afghanistan. In a country where your physical ability determines your ability to survive, this is of fundamental importance.
Stephanie from Festival Medical Services says;
‘We have found the seasonal promotions an easy way to remind our members, especially being able to download images for use via Facebook, twitter and Yammer. We have also printed off the personally designed flyers, which were placed in our medical centres and mess tent during Glastonbury Festival.’
‘Give as you Live is an excellent way of raising extra funds for our charities. The personally designed resources provided, are a simple and effective way of spreading the word to members, friends and families. The Give as You Live team have been incredibly supportive.’
They use Email, Yammer (FMS social group via Office 365) , Facebook and Twitter to promote Give as you Live to their supporters.
