to work on its pan-European community relations programme.



The pharmaceutical giant works with local communities across Europe, as

well as supporting larger charities, including the Samaritans and

Project Hope in Bosnia and Russia.



Staff at SKB’s European sites - situated in the UK, Germany, Ireland,

Portugal, Romania and the Ukraine - are involved with various local

charitable projects, by volunteering their time and expertise, as well

as equipment and in some cases funding.



The account is lead by Doug Walker, associate director at Prowse and Co.

His team of four will report to Louise Sibley, director of

communications for Europe at SKB. She said: ’We can now offer the

charities we support the extra resource of external communications and

PR to help get across the message of children’s health needs.’



The company is also involved with initiatives such as the Impact Awards,

which recognise non-profit healthcare community initiatives in the UK.
