09 Apr Social Media policy raises funds for MM
Medic Malawi is set to benefit from the fundraising efforts of a local supporter who is offering a social media policy in exchange for a donation to the charity.
Experts at Berners Marketing have created the editable version of the model social media policy to raise funds for Medic Malawi and Sue Bramall, director of Berners Marketing in Eccleshall, near Newport, said they were delighted to be helping such a good cause.

“The use of social media can be quite a worry for many employers who are concerned that their business reputation may be put at risk.
“We had been working with a number of clients and social media specialists to develop a model social media policy as well as a template social media register to help professional firms to manage their social media within the law.
“The policy has already been described as ‘one of the best written and well laid out’ and it is easy for any firm to adapt.
“We decided to make it widely available and thought it was a good opportunity to help Medic Malawi at the same time by asking for a donation,” she said.
“We chose Medic Malawi as our adopted charity because we know that all the money which is raised will go directly towards helping with healthcare and nutrition. It is important to us that donations are not swallowed up in the UK.”
The policy is available in editable MS Word format in return for a small donation.
There are a number of things the donation could be spent on: £50 would pay a nurse’s salary for a month; £100 pays for a month’s supply of emergency medicine; £150 funds five eye operations or £200 provide twos new beds for a children’s ward being built this year.
Stephen Drew, who took over Medic Malawi in 2011 after retiring as principal of Wrekin College, said: “We were really pleased when Berners Marketing chose us as their adopted charity.
“We think this is a really good way to help raise vital funds to help pay for our work in the impoverished country.
“All our donations help to fund a hospital in Mtunthama, together with a clinic for feeding the malnourished and an orphanage for 85 children.
“We just hope that other companies recognise this good work and donate money whilst helping to improve their social media.”
