Tunafish Media, the Portland Street based content marketing and media production agency, has donated 1% of the company’s equity to Forever Manchester.
The deal sees continuation in the strong relationship between Forever Manchester and Tunafish Media, with founders Sam Jones, Ric Brooks and James McDonald already serving as our Ambassadors and Tunafish Media also being an active Corporate Partner, recently hosting the first Forever Ballin’ which raised £1,800.
We also worked together for the 2013 ‘Captain Manchester’ campaign that made news headlines globally and won four gongs at the 2014 PR Moment ‘Golden Hedgehog’ Awards including the overall Grand Prix prize.
The deal will see Tunafish donate 1% of their annual profits as well as landing Forever Manchester the same percentage of any sale.
Forever Manchester is the community foundation for Greater Manchester and we support and fund over 1,000 community groups across the region varying from junior football teams right through to older people’s knitting clubs. The news follows a successful 2015 for Tunafish that saw them win a host of industry awards including ‘Best Creative Agency’ at The City of Manchester Business Awards and ‘Team of the Year’ at the Insider Magazine Awards and Managing Director Sam Jones set up the charity soup kitchen ‘Not Just Soup’ alongside Solita owner Franco Sotgiu.
Nick Massey, Forever Manchester’s Chief Exec said: “The founders of Tunafish Media, Sam, Ric and James are long terms supporters and not only have they donated and raised lots of money for Forever Manchester, but their understanding and passion for what we do is inspiring. This additional commitment is the mark of a thoughtful, modern and responsible business, we hope that other likeminded Greater Manchester businesses sit up and take note.”
Alongside this, Sam Jones, Managing Director, Tunafish Media said: “We have supported Forever Manchester for a number of years now and have seen first hand the impact their work has on a wide range of local community groups throughout the region. It’s a great honour to have them as part of our business and we’re looking forward to seeing the good work they do years to come.”
