Gecko Looking Forward To Food, Fun and Fizz With Jo Pratt

June 21, 2011 - 6:22 pm No Comments

Lovely Jo Pratt will be cooking up an evening of food, fun and Freixenet Fizz at the Freixenet Alfresco VIP in July… but before then we will be on the radio, in the studio and talking recipes too!

We are delighted that we are working with Jo Pratt, TV Chef and the author of the fabulous In The Mood For Entertaining.
Jo is going to be hosting the Freixenet Alfresco VIP event at Chiswick House in July – so to publicise the Freixenet VIP campaign and the event itself we are working with Jo to get interviews, news, competitions and features in broadcast and published media.

Its a manically busy time – but great fun!

In the past year West Berks Mencap has proved it is truly the best in the country – providing unsurpassed services to people with learning disabilities in the local community. On 2nd June, to top it all, it was announced that West Berks Mencap has been awarded the prestigious UK national honour, the Queen’s Award For Voluntary Service, in recognition of the fantastic contribution the charity’s volunteers make in West Berkshire.

Gecko has been working with WB Mencap since 2008, and is delighted to be part of this great organisation. All at Gecko were overwhelmed when Leila Ferguson CEO of WB Mencap said today ‘West Berkshire Mencap and Gecko have worked together for several years now and the impact that West Berkshire Mencap have had as a result has been considerable. Gecko has a real understanding of current and future issues and address them in a relevant and timely way.’
