Our clients challenged us to design a scheme which would appeal to the planners (previous architects who had looked at the site had had little success). They also had a pragmatic requirement for it be buildable by adopting construction methods and materials familiar to them such as pitched roofs, facing brick for the external finishes, timber kit construction and so on. Save this picture!© Dapple PhotographySave this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!© Dapple PhotographyAs well as the client’s constraints, which we embraced, we also developed our own stance for the project. This was to create a strong narrative-led architectural work which was site specific and which would create an authentic sense of belonging to the neighbourhood in which it is set. Save this picture!© Dapple PhotographyWe achieved this by adopting familiar building forms and in the architectural expression of motifs relating to the area’s historic connection to the weaving industry. This has seen the design being extremely well received by both the planners and also the local community during a series of consultation events.

Research and brand consultancy Morar HPI, is behind the Most Valuable Charity Brands League, which reveals the top 100 charities in terms of brand value. It combines financial data from the Charity Commission with insights from BrandVue Charities, a Morar HPI tool that tracks detailed public sentiment from 65,000 responders a year towards UK charities on a daily basis.The top five charities are Cancer Research UK, British Heart Foundation, Salvation Army, Macmillan, and British Red Cross. Cancer Research UK tops the table with a brand worth £2.3bn, followed by British Heart Foundation (£1.3bn) and the Salvation Army (£985m) Macmillan (£910m) and British Red Cross (£767m). The top 100 brands have a combined value of £20bn.The league table also suggests that UK giving is consolidated in a very small number of mega brands. Nearly half of the total £20bn value comes from the top 10 with the 100th brand, The National Autistic Society, having a brand value of less than 1% of Cancer Research UK.The report suggests that charities should embrace marketing and branding to widen their reach and attract more income. It also considers whether, to grow unrestricted giving, charities should invest in building mass-appeal brands to acquire supporters outside of the natural catchment of their cause or mission.Julian Dailly, Director at Morar HPI, said: “The league table reminds us that whether we like it or not, charity brands have a measurable value. The data shows how competitive the market for donations has become. The data shows charities of all sizes have can make a bigger impact on the world by building stronger, more resilient consumer brands.” Craig Linton, MD of fundraising consultancy Donor Voice, commented: Advertisement “A large number of charities still plan and operate without the benefit of solid data to underpin their planning and subsequent performance. Uniquely based on a combination of perception data and financial data, the new league will help to inform strategy for all charities, not just largest, but also smaller, nimbler charities that are open minded enough to read and apply the findings to their own work.” Most Valuable Charity Brands League will be published annually to reveal how the landscape changes year on year. 2,099 total views, 5 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

City of Cayce(CAYCE, S.C.) — Faye Swetlik, the 6-year-old whose disappearance launched a frantic, three-day search in her South Carolina neighborhood, was abducted and killed by asphyxiation, allegedly by a 30-year-old neighbor who was subsequently found dead, authorities said Tuesday.Amid the massive search, the neighbor, Coty Taylor, was interviewed by authorities and let them search his home, Cayce Department of Public Safety Director Byron Snellgrove said at Tuesday’s news conference.Swetlik, a first-grader, was found dead in a wooded area on Thursday, three days after she vanished. She had last been seen playing outside her home in Cayce, South Carolina, which is just outside of Columbia.At a Tuesday news conference, Lexington County coroner Margaret Fisher wept, expressing her condolences to the girl’s family. She said that the girl’s death was a homicide that took place within a few hours of her being abducted.Just moments after the girl’s body was found, Taylor was found dead at his nearby home, authorities said. Snellgrove said Tuesday that evidence leads authorities to believe Taylor abducted and killed Swetlik.Taylor died by suicide, the coroner said.During the massive search for Swetlik, authorities went door-to-door in the neighborhood. Taylor was interviewed on Wednesday afternoon, and he “was cooperative and gave consent” to look through his home, Snellgrove said.“Those agents did not see anything that alerted them to believe that he had knowledge or was at any way involved in Faye’s disappearance,” Snellgrove said.Authorities believe the 6-year-old’s body was moved to the wooded area while it was dark, in the early hours of Thursday morning, Snellgrove said.Authorities zeroed in on Taylor on Thursday morning when they were following sanitation trucks through Swetlik’s neighborhood, said Snellgrove.Thursday is the regular trash pickup day for the neighborhood, so as each can was emptied, investigators “methodically combed through” it, looking for clues, Snellgrove said.At about 10 a.m. Thursday, as officers were scouring through one trash can, they found a child’s polka-dot boot and a soup ladle with freshly dug dirt inside, Snellgrove said. [email protected]_DPS Director Snellgrove says a polka dot rainboot and ladle with dirt was found in the trash that caused them to search the area where #FayeSwetlik was found. @abc_columbia pic.twitter.com/JJOEGz4F4w— Maria Szatkowski (@MariaSzatkowski) February 18, 2020Taylor appeared to have acted alone, Snellgrove said. DNA also linked Taylor and Swetlik, Snellgrove added.The coroner confirmed that Swetlik did not die where her body was found and that her body had been in the wooded area for a short time.A candlelight vigil for the 6-year-old will be held outside Cayce City Hall Tuesday evening.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

During the last few months, most New Jersey businesses have been closed or severely restricted as a result of the Coronavirus. Most businesses were closed, in order to limit the transmission of the disease. New cases of the Coronavirus have been on the decline in recent weeks. Governor Phil Murphy has announced a gradual reopening of businesses in New Jersey. Many local enterprises will be coming back in stages, beginning this month.Effective June 15, restaurants will be allowed to have outdoor dining. Tables must be placed at least six feet apart. Social distancing must be maintained. Self-service food and drinks will not be allowed. Reservations will be encouraged. The New Jersey Restaurant and Hospitality Association released a set of guidelines for restaurants: sanitizing tables and chairs between uses; offering only individual condiment packages; and eliminating table lemons and unwrapped straws. The state will allow New Jersey restaurants with liquor licenses to apply for one-time special permits to serve alcohol outside. However, restaurants will have to comply with local liquor ordinances. × “Nonessential retail” businesses will be allowed to open, effective June 15, with reduced capacity.On June 22, hair salons and barbershops will be allowed to reopen.We should all welcome back our local businesses as they reopen. Bayonne’s small businesses need our help now more than ever. The owners and employees have had little or no income in recent months. They will have the opportunity to serve customers, either for the fist time in months, or with fewer restrictions than they have had up till now. We should all support our local businesses as they reopen. If a restaurant has outdoor dining, please patronize that restaurant. Please continue to take advantage of restaurants that offer pick-up and delivery services. Please get your hair cut or styled at a hair salon or barbershop. Please buy something at our local retail stores, regardless of whether the state considered them “essential” or “non-essential.” The jobs at all of them are essential to the workers and to our local economy.If new cases of the Coronavirus continue to decline, the state will continue with the gradual reopening of the economy. If new cases of the Coronavirus start to climb again, we will not be able to get back to normal. Please continue to wear a mask when you go shopping. Maintain social distancing.
