Brighouse based communications agency, Faith, has secured three new client contracts and welcomed a new member of staff as it celebrates its 15th year in business. To top off the celebrations, the agency also received the Silver CIPR PRide Yorkshire and Lincolnshire Award for Small Agency of the Year. 

The PR, social and content agency, has welcomed Woodley BioReg, Bed Kingdom and the Poetry Book Society to its client roster. 

Woodley BioReg is a team of expert industry professionals, with over two decades of experience, who offer trusted advice and guidance to manufacturers on the development of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products, devices and diagnostics. It has appointed Faith to take over its PR, email marketing, social media and blogging to boost brand awareness regionally, nationally and internationally. 

Bed Kingdom, part of Flair Furniture Ltd, is a Heckmondwike based national bed retailer which has recorded a 50 per cent increase in year-on-year revenue, taking its turnover to more than £15m. Faith will be taking on the firm’s digital PR and organic social media outputs to drive awareness and boost sales for the retailer.  

The Poetry Book Society was founded by T S Eliot and friends in 1953 to share the joy of poetry books. In 2016, supported by Arts Council England, the Poetry Book Society moved to Newcastle to join Inpress. Faith will be supporting the Society with email marketing, social media advertising, SEO content and influencer outreach. 

Dr Ash Ramzan, Woodley BioReg’s principal consultant, said: “We’re really looking forward to working with the Faith team.  

“After a long search for the right PR partner, and having reviewed the credentials of other local agencies, Faith’s appointment was based on their expertise and experience in the healthcare sector, as well as its proficiency to use PR to raise our brand visibility regionally, nationally and internationally. 

 “We have some really exciting international plans in the pipeline and I’m confident that the agency will help us meet the goals we’ve laid out.”   

Following this period of growth, Faith has appointed a new content writer, Katie Sessions, to support the team with content, blogging and PR.  

Katie studied Ancient History and English Literature, at the University of Swansea, before undertaking a post graduate digital marketing apprenticeship. She brings with her nearly two years’ worth of digital marketing and copywriting experience and hopes to expand on her current skills in her time at Faith. 

To top off the celebrations, Faith was awarded the CIPR PRide Yorkshire and Lincolnshire Silver Award for Best Small Agency of the Year, recognising the team’s performance over the last 12 months. This included investing more than £200K in a new building and appointing a new account director to lead its digital outputs.  

Managing director of Faith, Stefanie Hopkins, added: “Woodley BioReg, Bed Kingdom and the Poetry Book Society are well-established and professional organisations doing incredible work in their respective fields.  

“We have extensive experience in their sectors and believe that this knowledge, combined with our ability to offer paid, earned, owned and shared marketing communications, will help achieve their communications goals and enhance brand awareness to reflect the excellent work they do. 

“I am delighted to have so much to celebrate in Faith’s 15th year and am very much looking forward to continuing our growth in the years to come.”
