Food and drink specialist continues to expand

 A specialist Devon food, drink and lifestyle PR has landed a series of new clients as it continues to expand.

PR agency RAW has taken on board highly experienced PR practitioner, former reality TV  star and influencer Cheska Hull to support its expansion.

Co-director Hayley Reynolds, said: “We are delighted to not only be growing in line with our current clients, but also adding to our portfolio of award-winning businesses which are leading the way in their various categories.

“We are in the fortunate position of only working with those we truly believe in, who share similar values and ethos as RAW, with sustainability and the pursuit of excellence as key drivers.”

Cheska previously starred in BAFTA award-winning reality show Made In Chelsea as well as running her own PR company for five years.

Cheska said: “It’s brilliant to be working with such a creative and vibrant team here in Devon.

“We represent the best food, drink and lifestyle brands from both the South West region and further afield.

“Although based in Devon, RAW has the same skills, contacts and resources as a London based agency. It also has the added knowledge of the Westcountry.”

Commenting on its appointment of RAW for all its PR activity, Emily Harmon, who oversees the project at The Collective at Woolsery in North Devon, said: “RAW is truly passionate about all that they do and, within a few short weeks of working together, have already gained national coverage for our newly launched accommodation.  I am looking forward to the months ahead working with the team there.”

With the on-site The Farmers Arms, Woolsery is rapidly becoming one of Devon’s most exciting culinary destinations.

Assisting with RAW’s growth plan, Hayley recently completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program which helps entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunities by providing access to education and business support.

Hayley founded RAW in 2011 and now runs the business with her husband Jonathan Reynolds.
