PUBLIC SECT0R: Lottery handout body hires GBC for green remit

Lottery handout body the New Opportunities Fund has hired agency

support for a PR push of forthcoming environmental projects.

Grant Butler Coomber has been appointed to aid the body's regional

communications set-up of nine offices, for the next three years.

This will include local PR campaigns for the £150m Transforming

Communities initiative, which supports environmental projects including

those involving recycling and renewable energy.

The GBC team is led by head of consumer Sara Tye who reports to Linda

Quinn, NOF head of communications.

Other regional PR projects include promoting funding for drugs

rehabilitation schemes in Scotland.

GBC also announced this week that it had been appointed to handle PR for

Carers UK's annual Carers Week, which takes place from 10 to 16 June.
