Investing in our community, young talent & charity partnerships

Fat Media is proud to be based in the city of Lancaster. It is a fantastic place to live and work with an excellent pool of young talent that has helped us to grow and prosper.

We believe it's our duty to reinvest in our community and, in particular, the next generation of young people.

With that in mind we’re keen to play our part in the local and regional community, contributing positively and actively wherever we can.

We’re proud of the positive impact we have as a significant employer and also in the way we help other local businesses flourish and develop, thanks to our web development, digital marketing and graphic design projects.

Fat Media also actively supports many community initiatives and causes as a company - and many of our employees are involved, either in an individual capacity or with help from work colleagues, in charity fundraising projects.

 

Local Support

We formally support the work of Lancashire Association of Boys and Girls Clubs by delivering and maintaining its website as well as offering support with design and print of promotional and information materials.

Fat Media has also provided a website for young people to apply for funding from the George Fox School Educational Charity which gives financial assistance to support people under 25 through education.


Business Support

Our contribution to the area’s business and leisure community has included sponsorship of the Lancashire and Blackpool Tourism Awards, Lancaster Beer Festival and several matches at Morecambe FC’s Globe Arena.

Fat Media also has a designated work experience scheme and works with Dallam High School in Milnthorpe, Cumbria and Heysham High School in Heysham, Lancashire to provide a valuable, informative and exciting work placement experience for local young people. We believe in our young talent and we are delighted to have many home grown experts here at Fattie HQ.

 

International Support – The Kunde Hospital

Fat Media have pledged £15,000 over the next five years to the unique Kunde Hospital, Nepal, which will fund and expand a Mid-Wife Program in the Solu-Khumbu area.

The hospital was founded by Sir Edmund Hillary in 1966 and is situated 3,840 metres above sea level in the shadows of Mount Everest; serving 8,000 local people. The village of Kunde is incredibly isolated, a hard 6-day (125 km) walk to the nearest road or a 10-hour walk (20 km) to a hillside airstrip. 

David Durnford, Fat Media CEO explains why he chose to support the foundation through Fat Media:
"The work of the Kunde Hospital and the vital service it supplies to the local people is an incredibly achievement in itself - it is effectively a hospital on top of the world! We wanted to support something different and this project demonstrates continued innovation, dated back incredibly to 1966. The hospital is now run completely by local people and with extra donations from supporters like ourselves, new projects such as the Mid Wife Program can be realised.”

 

The Fatties

Individual Fat Media Directors and employees have also offered help to, and organised fundraising events for, TackleAfrica, Zoe’s Place Children’s Hospices, Sport Relief, YMCA Lancaster, CancerCare and the Marsh Community Centre to name just a few.

  • At The Daffodil Hotel & Spa we have a strong brand direction and we knew what we wanted from our site with Fat Media. Working with the team to design such an impressive, CTA focused site has been a great experience.

    Laura Wolstenholme, Head of Sales & Marketing, Daffodil Hotel & Spa
  • I’ve been delighted with Fat Media’s web development skills and their flexibility in meeting our requirements. With their help we updated our website presentation layer, added responsive mobile, added a new Content Management System, changed our Airport Property management System and migrated across to a new hosting environment. All without any major hitches.

    Fergus Boyd, IT Director, Yotel
  • We had the pleasure of working with the team at Fat Media in the development of our new recruitment website. They made the whole project very easy for us and nothing was too much trouble. We were on time and on-budget but most importantly they delivered a really creative solution in keeping with our brand - we were thrilled with the results. We have a clean contemporary recruitment website which makes learning more about life at Lakeland very accessible to applicants.

    Suzanne Allen, People & Business Support Manager, Lakeland
  • Working with Fat Media has been a pleasure from start to finish – their enthusiasm for creating a brilliant new website starts in the initial briefing and runs throughout the project. They are always on hand to provide guidance and provide solutions quickly. They have a friendly yet professional approach and deliver to expectations and time scales. Looking forward to working with them on the next project!

    Emily McCoid, Marketing Manager, Bells of Lazonby
  • The Digital Advertising team at Fat Media did a highly professional and intuitive job from start to finish, and are a pleasure to work with. They took the time to understand what we wanted to achieve, develop detailed analysis which was then evolved based on the data emerging throughout our campaign, and, by them continuously optimising the mix of channels, formats and styles, the results far surpassed our expectations – so much so that we have already set a higher budget for our next campaign.

    Iain Corby, Director of Operations & Development, Gamble Aware
  • Having worked with Fat Media on various projects over the last 18 months, I have been delighted with not just the quality of the finished work but also the innovative and creative approach taken in response to any brief. They have really helped us to bring the Lancaster University brand to life.

    Clare Riding, Head of Marketing, Lancaster University
  • Fat Media have done excellent work designing and building our new retail website in Magento. Throughout the process all of their staff have proven to be helpful, informed and proactive. A great experience all round!

    David Lindsay, IT Manager, Royal Mile Whiskies
  • We've worked with Fat Media for many years now and have always found that they'll go above and beyond to accommodate our requests. As our teams have grown together we've developed a strong working relationship based on a great deal of trust and the team have gone to great lengths to understand the market in which we operate to find ways that they can best meet our needs.

    Annabel Arrowsmith, Marketing Manager, Foresight
  • We appointed Fat Media to work with us on the rebranding and positioning of Atlantic Geomatics, as well as to develop for us a website that would support business growth as one of the leading Geospatial Companies in the North of England and Scotland.

    The quality of work delivered by Fat Media across all aspects of our brief, has provided Atlantic Geomatics with the confidence and support needed to help us grow as a business and meet our marketing and commercial objectives.

    We look forward to continuing to work with Fat Media as our marketing partner.

    Oliver Viney, Business Manager, Atlantic Geomatics
  • We worked very closely with Fat Media to make sure all key elements of the site were quickly accessible and found the perfect balance between design elements and user experience.

    Gareth O'Rourke, E-marketing Manager, Pure Leisure
  • It was as pleasure to work with Fat Media on developing our new website this year. They were proactive, creative and very practical with their proposals and working approach to meet our needs. We also launched on time – no mean feat with a school website, where approvals are often down to a number of people. They also created our new whole school Prospectus which perfectly complements the website and has given us a fresher, more contemporary feel for all our materials. They remain supportive and helpful and I know that I can always call them up for advice or help.

    Alison Miles, Marketing Manager, Sydenham High School
  • We wanted a professional and affordable option to promote and produce a unique patient story here at the Spire Bristol Hospital. The staff at Fat Media managed to compile a fantastic article in what was a relatively short deadline. We would like to thank them all for the personal service which was provided throughout
