Blog PR for Charity

A GROUP of friends who banded together to help a businessman raise cash for Isabel Hospice are charting their progress with the help of the Welwyn and Hatfield Times website.

As reported in last week's WHT, Sam Ahmed, manager at The Pavillion Indian restaurant in WGC, decided he wanted to do something for the community as a thank you for them supporting his business.

He has organised a three-course meal with wine, followed by grand charity auction at his restaurant on Thursday, October 26.

This week his team of helpers set up their own blog through the WHT website.

It will chart their progress as the event draws near.

This is a great way to use social media the link up between a blog, a restaurant and a local newspaper is a nice model.
