Bauer’s Cash for Kids Recognised in Loved Charity Brands Report

Bauer’s Cash for Kids has been named the ninth top Children’s charity in Savanta’s Top 100 Most Loved Charity Brands 2021 report.

The first time Cash for Kids has been included in the rankings, it also took the 34th spot overall, ahead of other children’s charities NSPCC and Save the Children.

The rankings recognise and celebrate the most emotively connected brands within the third sector, based on 60,000 interviews collected over the past year through Savanta’s market intelligence platform BrandVue Charities.

The research found that trust is a necessary ingredient for establishing a healthy relationship with a charity, and loved charities are significantly more trusted and supported by the public.

Cash for Kids raised £19.2 million in 2020, benefitting over 396,639 sick and underprivileged children.

Bauer to be Headline Sponsor of Women in Business & Tech Expo

Bauer Media has been announced as the headline event sponsor for this year’s Karren Brady’s Women in Business & Tech Expo.

As part of the partnership, Bauer Media will be hosting two sessions across the conference. Harriet Scott, Presenter of Magic Radio’s Breakfast Show, and Claire Foster, Commercial Chief Operating Officer Bauer Media Advertising, will both be taking the stage, providing audiences with insights into their careers, the tips and tricks they’ve learnt along the way, how their current roles at Bauer allow them to thrive and how brands can best connect with females – both as staff and consumers.

Dee Ford CBE, Group Managing Director, Bauer Radio UK said: “At Bauer, we strongly believe that the diversity of our workforce is key to our success. We feel passionately about representing our audiences, and so it’s essential that our women are given the opportunity to flourish – be that from access to entry level positions, to the most senior roles in our company.

“Navigating the world of work can sometimes be an isolating experience, particularly now more than ever, and so events such as Karren Brady’s Women in Business & Tech Expo are a fantastic opportunity for people from all backgrounds to come together and connect.”
