Unity to improve image of charity chuggers'

Friends of the Earth is using Unity to make its 'chuggers' more engaging to the public.

Unity is working with the charity's street fundraising team and green theatre company Arcola to produce ten-minute plays on the issue of biofuels.

Members of Arcola will perform these plays in a range of unusual venues including the Innocent festival and Thames barges throughout August and September.

Unity hopes the choice of venues will generate press coverage.

Agency co-founder Nik Done said that street fundraising was an 'interruptive' form of marketing, like traditional advertising.

Instead, the agency has 'taken our core principle of engagement marketing and put a twist on it to make it work for street fundraising'.

FoE is ramping up its campaigning on biofuels this summer.

Unity secured coverage last month for a climate change gig with Razorlight's Johnny Borrell.
