Rule 5 co-founder, Jules Wilson, will be swapping the comfort of her bed for a night in the open this October, as part of CEO Sleepout Manchester.

The event, founded in 2013, strives to fight homelessness and poverty, and raise vital funds for homeless charities and other local charitable projects.  Over the last three years a staggering £1m has been raised at events across the UK and this year we’re delighted to contribute, supporting Jules in her fundraising.

Speaking on the event, Jules said: “You cannot fail to be moved by the extent of the homeless situation in Manchester, there are people in need of help on every corner of every street and the problem is on the rise.

“Whilst I’ll be sleeping outdoors it is still within the security of others and will see me return to the comfort of my home 24 hours later.  Over 2,000 people in Manchester don’t have that privilege.   When I was approached by MASH to participate I didn’t hesitate  to sign up.  I’m delighted to be able to play a small part in tackling a significant issue.”

CEO Sleepout Manchester takes place this October 16.  You can support Jules in her aim to raise over £1,000 here and find out more about the event at http://www.ceosleepoutuk.com/

Nexbridge Calls on Rule 5

Specialist telecommunications provider Nexbridge has appointed the agency to provide PR and communications support for WHYPAY? and The Wonderful Organisation. The agency will also launch a new brand for the company later this year.

WHYPAY? is a free conference call platform. Unlike its competitors there are no third party costs as it uses a dial-in number that is included in bundled minutes whether calling from a fixed or mobile telephone. The Wonderful Organisation has been set up by Nexbridge Chairman Kieron James as a not for profit fundraising platform. Its costs are covered by Nexbridge and other corporate sponsors.

“We’ve appointed Rule 5 because they understood our businesses and they have a strong track record of delivering effective PR campaigns” said Kieron. “We have some major announcements in the next six months including a new focus for Wonderful.org and a new brand that will have a major impact on the conference call sector.”

“Lots of people talk about disruption but Nexbridge has plans that will have a real impact on the corporate conference call market and the charitable giving sector” said Rule 5 Managing Partner, Rob Brown. “We are really looking forward to launching several genuinely innovative products and services.”
