Appointed following a three-way competitive pitch, Midas PR’s media campaign will build on the Trust’s recent revitalised web presence and stronger branding and messaging at the properties.

Crispin Truman, Chief Executive of the Churches Conservation Trust, said: “We appointed Midas on the strength of their understanding of our core and potential audiences and the creativity of their proposed campaigns.”

Penny Clifton, Managing Director of Midas PR said:   “Many churches are only open and in use today thanks to the imaginative work of the Churches Conservation Trust. Our intention is to showcase the work of the Trust and encourage more people to visit and enjoy these marvels of English history”.

The Churches Conservation Trust (CCT), which protects historic churches at risk, has saved over 340 churches which almost 2 million visitors a year. The charity’s unique collection of English parish churches includes irreplaceable examples of architecture, archaeology and art from 1,000 years of history.  Many have been adapted sympathetically for 21st century use, and CCT aim to bring them all back into the heart of the community for everyone to enjoy.
