Buying a FTSE 100 index tracker fund is a simple process that could deliver high returns in the long run. The index’s track record shows it has the potential to produce high annual returns, while its current valuation suggests it offers a wide margin of safety.For investors with £1,000, and for whom diversifying may not initially be possible, obtaining a favourable risk/reward ratio from a FTSE 100 index tracker could be a worthwhile move. It may improve your financial position – especially if you enable compounding to positively impact on your returns in the long run.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Track recordThe FTSE 100 may be viewed by some investors as an index which provides modest capital returns and a relatively impressive income return. This may be because it trades less than 10% higher than it did over 20 years ago. However, the long-term track record of the index suggests it could produce impressive capital growth, as well as a high income return.Since its inception in 1984, the FTSE 100 has produced an annualised total return of around 9%. Certainly, much of that growth was delivered prior to the turn of the century. But, with it currently offering a dividend yield of around 4.4%, it may now be undervalued after recording modest gains in the past two decades.As such, its future prospects seem to be relatively bright, and it could post impressive capital returns which boost your financial future.Risk/rewardAs well as offering high total return potential, a FTSE 100 index tracker fund provides a high degree of diversification for investors. For example, investing £1k in a wide range of individual stocks to reduce company-specific risk may not be a realistic goal. The cost of commission could mean your overall returns are somewhat disappointing on a net basis.However, buying units in a tracker fund is likely to be cheap and yet provide exposure to 100 of the biggest companies in the world. Many of them operate outside of the UK, which provides geographic diversification, while a range of sectors and industries are represented in the FTSE 100. Therefore, from a risk/reward standpoint, the index offers a highly attractive proposition – especially for investors with a modest amount of capital.CompoundingWhile it may be tempting to sell your FTSE 100 tracker fund if it’s in profit, holding it for the long term could deliver significant returns. A 9% annual return may not sound especially impressive. But, when it’s repeated over a period of 30 years, for example, it equates to a total return of over 1,200%.As such, buying and holding a FTSE 100 index tracker fund over the long term could be a sound move that benefits your financial situation. Of course, as your capital builds you may wish to buy individual stocks that have the potential to beat the index. In doing so, you could outperform the index, and further increase your portfolio growth rate in the long run. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

Lions 2013: Rugby World’s Lions squad

first_imgLONDON, ENGLAND – MARCH 10: Manu Tuilagi of England in action during the RBS Six Nations match England and Italy at Twickenham Stadium on March 10, 2013 in London, England. (Photo by David Rogers – RFU/The RFU Collection via Getty Images) Old-heads: O’Connell and O’Driscoll are likely to be named in Warren Gatland’s Lions squad tomorrow morning By Owain JonesLions squad 2013AFTER FOUR years, the waiting is finally over. In less than 24 hours, the names of 37, or 38 players will be read out to a media scrum in South-West London. It will mark the start of another chapter in a 125-year journey for the most celebrated jersey in rugby, the British and Irish Lions.So, without further ado, here are the names of the tourists we would liked to see named, let us know what you think:Front RowIn the pack, the two tightheads pick themselves, Adam Jones will be inked in for a test start, followed closely by Dan Cole, who will looking to push him harder than he did during their head to head in Cardiff. At loosehead, Cian Healy’s carrying game in the loose and solid scrummaging pips 98-cap Gethin Jenkins, who improved steadily through the Six Nations with regular game time. Finally Paul James gets the nod, for his ability to cover both sides of the scrum. Andrew Sheridan, Ryan Grant and Mako Vunipola are the trio closest to the call-up and will no doubt watching their phones nervously over the next two months.Abrasive: Healy should start at looseheadHookerAt hooker, the combative Richard Hibbard will start in the box-seat and will be accompanied by Tom Youngs who has had a remarkable 11 months for club and country. Finally, the ever-dependable Rory Best, while not at his most influential, this season, will fight it out with Youngs to unseat the man in possession. Ken Owens, who has proved such an able impact player on the international stage, misses out.LocksIn the engine room, 2009 captain Paul O’Connell tours for a third time after towering performance against Harlequins and a defiant turn against Clermont in the Heineken Cup. He will be joined by the similarily uncompromising Alun Wyn Jones, who added steel and leadership to the Welsh push for the Six Nations title. They are joined by Ian Evans, Jones’ erstwhile partner-in-crime and Richie Gray, who despite a fallow year domestically, adds some flair to his obvious physical grunt in the second-row. Geoff Parling is the final lock. Parling has been a constant for England over the past 15 months, provides a huge workrate and is a skilled lineout technician. Joe Launchbury, Nathan Hines, Donnacha Ryan and Jim Hamilton must have all been jotted down at some point over the last few weeks, only to be replaced. FlankersAs probable captain, Sam Warburton travels, but he will be pushed for his place by his regional rival, Justin Tipuric. The young Osprey is the most highly-skilled member of the Lions pack and has the ability to change games with a sleight of hand or a key turnover. His impact will be most likely felt from the bench. The others to make the plane are the bullocking Sean O’Brien who can play anywhere across the backrow and Dan Lydiate, who has just returned from injury and will travel because of  his destructive defensive game. The last plane ticket goes to Tom Croft, who has been increasingly influential for Leicester since returning from a serious neck injury. His speed across the deck and lineout option at the tail make him a likely tourist. Tom Wood, Chris Robshaw, Peter O’Mahony and Kelly Brown can all expect to be at the boarding gate, on standby.No 8 LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Forwards (21): Adam Jones, Dan Cole, Richard Hibbard, Tom Youngs, Rory Best, Cian Healy, Gethin Jenkins, Paul James, Paul O’Connell, Alun Wyn Jones, Geoff Parling, Ian Evans, Richie Gray, Sam Warburton, Toby Faletau,  Dan Lydiate, Justin Tipuric, Jamie Heaslip, Sean O’Brien, Tom CroftBacks (17): Mike Phillips, Ben Youngs, Danny Care, Jonny Sexton, Jonny Wilkinson, James Hook, Jamie Roberts, Brian O’Driscoll, Jonathan Davies, Manu Tuilagi, Tommy Bowe, George North, Alex Cuthbert, Sean Maitland, Stuart Hogg, Rob Kearney, Leigh Halfpenny On current form, Toby Faletau makes it as the first-choice. As No 8, Faletau stood out as the most-effective ball carrier and defender in the Six Nations. A player who needed a late run of form to sneak in was Jamie Heaslip. The big man from Kildare put in a timely performance against Biarritz with a brace of tries within the fist 40 minutes. The odd man out is Ben Morgan, whose opportunities to impress were limited by injury.Hard-yards: Toby Faletau has been standout the No 8Scrum-halfThe man in possession is the irrepressible Mike Phillips for whom the term ‘Test Match Animal’ may as well have been invented, although he’ll need to perform better against Will Genia that he did 12 months ago for Wales, when the Wallaby outplayed him. Ben Youngs and Danny Care will bring sniping options from the bench, leaving Conor Murray at home.Fly-halfAt fly-half, it’s an extremely tight call. Jonny Sexton possesses the finest all-round skill-set in the home nations, and he will be joined by either Owen Farrell or Jonny Wilkinson. Both players are similar, with a structured game and solid defence, but offer limited creativity. On form, Wilkinson’s experience and status in Australia may just tip the favour in his balance. Who else would you want to drop a goal late on?CentresMidfield is an area where the Lions have extreme power but lack subtlety. The successful 2009 centre pairing of Jamie Roberts and Brian O’Driscoll may well be reprised, with the ballast of Manu Tuilagi ready to enter the fray and smash into tiring Wallaby defences late on. Jonathan Davies and James Hook fill the midfield options. Davies is in for his knack of scoring tries and understanding with Roberts, while Hook, an outsider, deserves to tour because of his creativity, versatility and experience. He can comfortably cover 10, 12, 13 and 15 positions and edges the less experienced, Billy Twelvetrees.Wrecking-ball: Tuilagi is hugely powerfulWingsThe two front-runners on the wing are George North and Tommy Bowe. North is physically intimidating but has quick feet and footballing skills, while 2009 Lions tourist, Bowe, has returned from injury scoring tries liberally with Ulster. Left to fight it out and change Gatland’s mind are the Six Nations top try-scorer Alex Cuthbert and Scot Sean Maitland, who has shown composure, a physical edge and a finishers instinct, since making his international debut in February. Injury may have cost Simon Zebo his tour place, and Christian Wade must have been given some serious consideration.Full-backsFull-back is an area of strength for the Lions. Leigh Halfpenny, the 2013 Six Nations Player of the Tournament is a certainty to tour. He has proved a top-class international kicker and also gives the option to play on the wing. Joining him will be the hugely exciting Stuart Hogg and king of the skies, Rob Kearney, who has had a quiet year, but sneaks in on reputation.Lions squad 2013last_img read more

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York [Diocese of Arizona] Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori attended a gathering of the Arizona Jubilee Ministry Centers assembled at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Tucson on April 12. Episcopal Community Services and the Jubilee officer sponsored the gathering to network and showcase a variety of ministries for Jefferts Schori, Bishop Kirk Smith of Arizona, and the Rev. Christopher Johnson, program officer for social and economic justice. Each ministry appointed a representative to share with those in attendance the stories of their ministries.Johnson began the evening with a brief history of Jubilee, and provided a framework on the role of Jubilee in networking and sharing ministry models throughout the diocese, the province and the church worldwide.The event featured the ministries of All Saints at Safford and their feeding program at Bylas on the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation for 15 years, and St. Andrew’s Children’s Clinic in Nogales, providing volunteer professional medical services to more than 250 children from across the Mexican Border each month for the past 35 years.Other ministries included Interfaith Cooperative Ministries of Phoenix, a collaboration of 73 faith partners providing food, clothing, medical services since 1983; Interfaith Community Services of Tucson, 58 member faith communities serving the poor from the campus of Christ the King Episcopal Church; The Episcopal Habitat Coalition, which has built and paid for more 50 homes in the greater Phoenix area; St. Phillip’s in-the-Hills, Tucson, providing an after-school music education for children living in poverty; Good Shepherd of the Hills, Cave Creek, providing a wide variety of ministries funded with more than $70,000 annually from the proceeds of their Gold Mine Thrift Store; and Imago Dei Middle School, which provides quality education for children in grades five through eight who are from low-income families in Tucson.In the past 20 years, St. Andrew’s Food for Life Ministry has provided more than one million meals to persons living with HIV/Aids, as well as feeding their neighbors in Tuscon with meals prepared in St. Andrew’s kitchen. Following the presentations by the Jubilee Ministries, more than 60 guests were served a gourmet meal, prepared by Deacon Jefferson Bailey, the Feeding Ministry coordinator.Jefferts Schori summed up what she had witnessed from those present: “. . . you are restoring dignity . . . you are claiming people as God’s beloved by what you are meeting in them. And I think you are receiving some of the same from them. You know what the gift is in participating in someone else’s life. That story that you are able to tell the wider world is transformative, and it invites other people to extend themselves into crossing borders into other people’s lives. Thanks be to God! Keep telling the stories. I’ve said to a couple of people that you are phenomenal evangelists by your ability to tell the stories about transformed lives, including your own. Thank you for what you are doing. Thank you for your witness, your presence, and your love for God’s people.

Oliver Lee, rector of Trinity Episcopal Church in Dallas and a chaplain for the Dallas Police Department, preaches during a Requiem Mass for the Fallen and Prayer for the City of Dallas at St. Mathew’s Cathedral. Photo: Diocese of Dallas[Episcopal Diocese of Dallas] Love thy neighbor.This well-known Christian theme reverberated throughout North Texas churches Sunday as clergy tried to give hurting congregants a way to move forward after the last several days of violence in Dallas and the nation.The whole purpose of God’s love, mercy and forgiveness has always been to bring us into right relationship with one another, preached the Rev. Oliver Lee, during a Requiem Mass for the Fallen and Prayer for the City of Dallas at St. Mathew’s Cathedral. Lee, who is rector of Trinity Episcopal Church and a chaplain for the Dallas Police Department, told the congregation of about 300 that it’s time for everyone to think more intentionally about living a life of love, grace and forgiveness.The prayer service comes just days after the July 7 mass shooting during a rally in downtown Dallas where protestors had been peacefully protesting the deaths of two black men by police officers in other states. At the rally, a lone gunman’s bullets blistered the crowd hitting 12 law enforcement officers, five fatally, and striking two pedestrians.Lee served as a hospital chaplain that fateful night rushing to the hospital not yet realizing that he would know two of the men who had died. During the sermon, he tried to make sense out of why anyone would target law enforcement officers. “Imagine a society without police. Life as we know it would not exist. Think about it. Our nation would be reduced to fiefdoms of petty warlords who would be a law unto themselves,” Lee said.The Dallas police were at the protest rally protecting people of all races because they believe that all lives matter, Lee said. The suffering caused by the gunman will have lasting affects. “I saw a wife inconsolable at the loss of her husband, because her husband believed, that all lives matter. I watched a teenager grieving for her father, because her father believed, that all lives matter. My heart broke for a child with special needs trying to understand that dad’s not coming home, because her dad believed that all lives matter.”In addition to the requiem, congregations throughout Dallas wrapped themselves in prayer, Scripture and worship Sunday as they processed the recent violence and sought answers for a more peaceful world.Episcopal Diocese of Dallas Bishop George Sumner joined Bishop J. Lee Slater at New Millennial Bible Fellowship and Praise Center in Dallas to worship and to build further an existing relationship with the bishop and his church. The two bishops co-chair this year’s Dallas Champions Academy, an organization for at-risk boys and girls, ages 8-18, during a life-skills and sports camp with the aim of getting them into college. The bishops have also been planning a pulpit swap in the fall to foster a deeper relationship between the denominations.Slater’s wife, Lady Donna Slater, who is executive pastor at the church, preached a sermon telling worshipers that they should not let the world dictate their behavior but to follow Scripture and act with forgiveness and love. “So many times we are waiting on someone else to show their manners when God wants us to show our manners,” she said. “God says show your love. We don’t have to worry about what other folks are doing, just do what you are supposed to do.”She also cautioned not to make the immediate days after the violence be the only time to show love to neighbors and associate with those from another culture.“God is not impressed when you hold hands with people you don’t normally speak to, for only one day. Are you following along with the world, or are you standing against?”In another corner of Dallas, at St. Augustine’s Oak Cliff the Rev. Paul Wheatley talked about the parable of the Good Samaritan, a story of love, generosity and mercy coming from an unexpected place.“It serves as an encouragement and correction to the way we tend to gather with and care for people who are most like us before we serve those people who may look or live differently than we do. ‘And who is my neighbor?’ the lawyer slyly asks. Jesus’ reply would rightly lead us to conclude that there is no one we could exclude from the right to be loved as our neighbor. Black, white, gay, straight, police, criminal, Muslim, Jew, atheist: all are our neighbors, and all are worth loving.”Sumner told the parishioners that this is a time for the church to help them come through the recent horrific days with some hope and encouragement.“In spite of its divisions in the world, the Church is Christ’s body, which is one,” Sumner later said in a statement. “This reality comes from Him, not us. The moment in which we live calls us to a common Christian witness, across all lines of class race, and denomination. We need to be praying what forms that witness needs to take.”At the requiem, Lee emotionally read the names of the fallen officers and reiterated that in God’s kingdom, all lives are equal. “My sisters and brothers, our Savior, Jesus Christ willingly suffered death upon the cross because unequivocally, irrefutably, and indisputably, He knew that: All. Lives. Matter.” Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Featured Jobs & Callslast_img read more

Personalize your stream and start following your favorite authors, offices and users.Go to my stream Photographs:  Gustavo Sosa PinillaThe placeThe ground of 20m x 30m located in the forest of Mar Azul has the particularity of a very important unevenness respect of the two streets it faces. While this complicates the resolution of access to the site provides the advantage that, if the house is located high, it is very little exposed to the gaze from the street, and also from the inside you can get views of the landscape above the neighboring buildings. This difference in level is more or less smooth to the back of the lot, but it is very sharp towards the opposite front and in this area the forest is also thinned.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaRecommended ProductsWoodEGGERLaminatesDoorsSolarluxBi-Folding Doors – EcolineDoorsAir-LuxPivoting DoorDoorsdormakabaEntrance Doors – Revolving Door 4000 SeriesThe commissionThe order of the client was a three-bedroom house that did not exceed 120m2, designed to be used not only in summer but on several occasions throughout the year. In particular was pointed out the need for a generously sized main bedroom, which should have a private bathroom and a certain independence from the rest of the house. The other two bedrooms could share a bath and have a minimal surface, so as to give the social area as much space as possible. The kitchen (a very important space for the client) should be fully integrated into this area and was especially highlighted the need for generous outdoor expansions. It also required a deposit for storing of different elements for beach sports. Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaRegarding the formal requirements, while requested a concrete house, i.e. aesthetic and constructive proposal similar to the other houses built by the studio in Mar Azul, this commission gave permission to try any search that characterize the experience.Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaThe proposalOn the client’s permission expressed in the phrase “you may risk proposing a variant of the built houses,” and in the particularity of the lot and the required program, lay the uniqueness of this house. The search for formal variants was not easy since it does not involve change of technology, nor conception of spatiality (that stay more than clear in the first talks) but it intended to make some kind of new contribution without giving up those premises. The proposal could have been testing with new textures of concrete, even with the addition of pigments, but all these procedures appeared to contradict our posture rather austere and non aestheticist of architecture. The solution came by chance when we notice that in the process of producing works of exposed concrete, there is an important remaining of wooden planks used to make the formwork. It seemed then interesting, and also conducive in order to take advantage of every resource available, to reuse these tables in the execution of some wooden walls. This is how we started to think the project from replacing some exterior and interior concrete walls with partitions of tables and wooden structure. Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaIn relation to the volume, the house was resolved as two prisms at different heights and perpendicular to each other, united by a ladder that saves the difference, and located between pine trees in the highest sector of the lot. In the volume parallel to the direction of the slope, with one side partially buried and the other in situation of balcony, are placed the gathering activities of the family group plus the two small bedrooms. The volume perpendicular to the slope enjoys proximity with the foliage of pine trees that rise from the ground and there is placed the main bedroom with bathroom and terrace. Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaThe functional organizationUsing a ladder hidden in the dune’s natural slope, the volume is accessed through a main terrace that develops along the longest side, so that by opening the sliding carpentry, full integration is achieved between inside and outside. In this housing sector, the package formed by the household and shared bathroom separates the social zone from the two small “bedroom cabin” and marks the beginning of the soft descending stairway leading to the main bedroom in a very quiet situation. From this room are presented views in high, screened by walls of concrete and the pines foliage, from the forest surrounding the house. It is also possible to go outside through a small terrace that, along with the stairs, links the two volumes which form the house. Under the main bedroom is located the water tank with access from one of the streets. Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaThe outdoor activities were posed following the principle of “scatter on the ground” so that their impact is as small as possible: thus was proposed a grill and a concrete table and benches at the top of the lot with views of the environment and, in the lower zone, shower facilities in the manner of sculptural object. Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaThe constructionThe house is constructed with three basic materials: exposed concrete, glass and pine wood tables and beams. The exterior walls made from this material were protected with burned oil. This seemed the most appropriate finish to facilitate maintenance of the pinewood and to harmonize with the colors of the forest. Save this picture!© Gustavo Sosa PinillaThe slabs of the different partitions and volumes are supported using concrete beams and are finished with a minimum slope in order to produce a faster runoff of rainwater. H21 concrete was used with the addition of a fluidifiant so that this mixture, with little amount of water to harden, results very compact and does not require sealing. The few interior walls of hollow bricks are finished in concrete screed; floor cloths are also from concrete screed divided with aluminum plates. The openings are of dark bronze anodized aluminum. The heating system, since there is no natural gas in the area, was solved with a system that combines a fireplace, bottled gas stoves and electric stoves.

This traditional, early twentieth century home has been transformed into a luxurious apartment featuring a wellness spa and roof-deck. Classic details and intricate woodwork are offset by the crisp contours of contemporary elements. Voids in the load-bearing interior walls create circulation in the floor plan and connect the living spaces. Residents can enjoy a spectacular view of Rotterdam’s skyline from the sauna, steam room, bathtub and roof-top whirlpool bath.Save this picture!Section 1The primary living space is on the second-story. Here, the floor plan has been augmented to include new functions such as an ensuite separation between the living and dining spaces and a second (guest) bathroom. These new functions are bundled into one discrete volume that is separate from the walls and ceilings of the traditional house. The gesture creates a clear distinction between the house’s classic and contemporary elements. Small wooden flooring strips, two by twenty centimeters, unite old and new.Save this picture!© Ossip van DuivenbodeUpstairs in the fourth-floor bedroom, all of the load-bearing walls have been eliminated. In the center of the space is a large, freestanding L-shaped element clad in American oak. The horizontal stroke of the L houses the bed and a large bathtub. The vertical stroke of the L contains a steam room and a sauna with a panorama window that provides a view of the city skyline. Save this picture!DetailThe roof-deck is accessible from the fourth-story bedroom by means of a roof access skylight. Along two sides, a semitransparent chestnut fence affords privacy. The remaining two sides of the deck are open, to provide a spectacular 180-degree view of Rotterdam’s skyline. A low, built-in container doubles as a railing and roof garden. The moss and stonecrop frame the deck with a thick swath of green. The roof-deck is floored in reclaimed hardwood and a subtle hatch in the floorboards betrays the whirlpool bath. From the bath, the skyline of Rotterdam can be seen in all its glory.

What the project seeks in material terms regarding the physical envelopes, is transparency and honesty of the used components, presenting them in a natural way, nothing presupposed or simulated. Letting the characteristics of the materials create the conditions of each space,  closing out the sunlight and heat gain, opening up to the views, allowing natural ventilation and cherishing the relationship with the garden as an induced natural element. Save this picture!© Oscar HernándezThe walls of compacted earth make up the foundation, the walls on which the house is constructed on, in a direct material reference to where the house is placed, using all the material obtained when excavating in the various underground layers of the plot.Save this picture!© Oscar HernándezSave this picture!© Oscar HernándezThe floors are divided into three objectives, the social, the private and the functional areas. The ground floor unites all the social spaces and is completed with a polished concrete floor, subjected to a laser levelling and polishing process that unifies it and allows it to be perceived as a great monolith. In a transition from the outside to a protected interior space, the second floor that hosts the bedrooms and the family room is a laminated wooden floor that aims to create warmth and privacy, while in the complementary and functional spaces the right combination of porcelain tiles is sought to allow practicality in the wet areas and a harmony of materials that generates a spatial sense.Save this picture!© Oscar HernándezThe windows of all the spaces towards the garden forced us to work with transparencies. The given climate and the orientations of the spaces allow this and hence a perception of a more ample space is achieved by multiplying the openings and having a direct relationship with the garden and the covered terrace. Save this picture!© Oscar HernándezSave this picture!© Oscar HernándezThe artificial lighting of the space is accentuating the key points of each space, giving the possibility to conceive different environments in the spaces. The use of LED lights was considered an energy-saving solution, and for the same reason, natural light is present in a direct, controlled and functional way in all spaces as well. A special module of latticework was manufactured on site to allow access to the views of the sunset and to control the solar angling on the interior of the west facade. Further, it forms a canvas of reticular light that dramatically penetrates the dynamic spaces of the house.Save this picture!© Oscar HernándezProject gallerySee allShow lessFine Arts and Design Studios / BNIMSelected ProjectsThe Threshold, The Secondary School / Paralelo ColectivoSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

John Grooms to measure role and value of awareness in donor recruitment

first_imgA targeted above-the-line campaign will be launched in North London (Harrow, Edgware and Boreham Wood) to raise initial awareness. GIFT Fundraising’s face-to-face recruitment teams will support the above-the-line activity. The campaign will test four forms of recruitment against test cells selected away from the target areas. Comparing results from areas, which received awareness support versus those without, will allow the impact of awareness in donor recruitment to be measured. John Wallbank, bluefrog Head of Planning commented: “This campaign marks a first for both John Grooms and the UK fundraising industry. We will be able to measure the impact of awareness raising activity on a variety of direct recruitment techniques – including direct mail, telephone and face to face.”  18 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis John Grooms, the campaign for disability charity, is claiming a UK first for its plan to identify the role and effectiveness of above-the-line activity in raising awareness and recruiting charity donors.Working with specialist advertising and fundraising agency bluefrog, John Grooms will operate two separate programmes of activity within controlled test areas in North London and Southend.
