North Coast Community College – PR and Event Management

North Coast Community College

PR and Event Management

the brief

Eight weeks out from the launch date, Barefruit was engaged by Kate Kempshall, CEO of North Coast Community College (NCCC) to assist with the PR and Event Management of the official opening of North Coast Community College Primary Industries Training Facility - a collaboration between NCCC and the Department of Primary Industries. The aim was to manufacture as much free publicity as we could about the new training centre and its new qualifications, as well as help organise an opening event to attract dignitaries, community guests and the media.

our response

The team at Barefruit worked closely with Kate and her team at NCCC, as well as the Department of Primary Industries on a part-pro bono basis, to produce a Press Release about the uniqueness and future potential of the training centre and qualifications for the local community and beyond. In the lead up to the official opening date, Barefruit played a major role in the organisation of the event, including managing invitations and RSVPs, catering, website updates, speech writing and more! Barefruit were also very much involved in creating email invitations, a course booklet and an illustrated map of the training facility. In the current climate of COVID-19, special consideration was taken in planning an event that would be safe for attendees.

The press release written by Barefruit was picked up by The Northern Star, the Ballina Advocate, ABC North Coast and NBN News, who all published stories about NCCC Primary Industries Training Centre. Paradise FM held a radio interview with Kate the day before the event too. The event was a great success, with media representatives from most local publications and television channels present, as well as dignitaries and special guests. Through this initial project, NCCC has awarded Barefruit as their marketing agency n a retainer basis, which is very exciting for the whole team.

the brief

Reduce Single Use was first brought to life in the Barefruit office, since then, the local Council has come on board to push the challenge of reducing single use within the Northern Rivers community. The challenge was to challenge yourself or your colleagues for the month of May to; use a reusable coffee cup, use a refillable water bottle and; use a reusable container and cutlery for your take away items.

"The collaboration between Barefruit Marketing, North East Waste and Ballina Shire Council for the Reduce Single Use project is a great example of community stakeholders coming together to create good things for our community.

Rafiki Mwema 

Sussex Royal PR Campaign

the brief

Barefruit is a Corporate Sponsor, friend, office buddy and all round supporter of Rafiki Mwema - a therapeutic safe house in Nakuru, Kenya, for young girls and boys that have suffered horrific abuse. In August 2019, Rafiki was chosen by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as one of only 15 global causes to support for the month, via an Instagram campaign - a mind-blowing achievement. Claire, Barefruit Director and a Rafiki Board Director, got to work on the PR campagin straight away.

our response

Being ‘the Royals’ this campaign was widely covered by media outlets all over the world. Our job was to maximise Rafiki's coverage and raise their profile, all over the world, but specifically in Australia and the UK, where each founder is based. We did this by issuing an immediate press release to Australian and UK media outlets, which coupled with Rafiki’s 70k+ social media following led to a media frenzy of activity!

the fruits

4 live TV appearances for founders Sarah Rosborg and Anne-Marie Tipper with an extra special guest, Peter, one of the boys from Kenya that Rafiki Mwema has cared for since he was a young boy. The TV interviews included Today Extra (Channel 9), Studio 10 (Channel 10) and Weekend Breakfast (ABC) in Australia, and the BBC in the UK.

Alongside these high-profile appearances, Sarah and Anne-Marie appeared in numerous magazine and newspaper articles and on ABC Radio.

"The media attention we (Rafiki) received because of the SussexRoyal campaign was amazing and just what we need. We are a volunteer-run charity and rely 100% on this kind of awareness. It was such great timing, as our UK Co-Founder and one of our Kenyan boys arrived in Australia shortly after, so they were able to take part in all the interviews. To have Harry & Megs following our charity will be one of my life highlights. We just need it to convert into donations now!"
