Mike Perham’s Big Drive

International aid relief charity ShelterBox asked Paper & Ink PR to take on a PR project with the aim of getting record-breaking adventurer Mike Perham media coverage for his 23,000 mile drive around the world (in aid of ShelterBox). The project was three-fold: To get press and broadcast coverage for Mike, ShelterBox and Mike’s sponsor, Spaceships Campervan rentals. It involved pitching news stories, feature and profiling opportunities to regional and national media outlets with the help of Rosalie (a fellow PR professional). Paper & Ink PR managed to get masses of regional coverage for Mike as well as national coverage on London Tonight, in the Metro and online.
