Who we are

Set up in 2004, Turner PR is a niche agency of committed PR, communications and content specialists who work exclusively with clients in the charity and non-profit sector.

We’re a small team, but we know the sector inside and out. Together we have more than 40 years’ experience of raising the profile of fundraising and charity services, working with trade bodies and associations, suppliers, sector campaigns and community organisations.

Creating bespoke solutions for each and every client, we deliver a broad range of services from PR and communications consultancy, brand development and strategic partnerships, to content development, copywriting, social media management, and design and production. 

The team

Jenny Turner, Managing Director and Founder

Having specialised in PR and marcoms within the charity sector for more than 20 years, Jenny founded Turner PR in 2004, growing the agency to deliver a broad range of PR and communications services for the non-profit sector. She is a keen supporter of the fundraising community, playing an active role on a variety of panels and committees, including the Chartered Institute of Fundraising’s Partners Forum, the institute’s Insight in Fundraising Special Interest Group and Awards programme, and the judging panel for the Charity Times Awards. Jenny is a natural and intuitive networker with an ability to identify potential strategic partnerships, often helping Turner PR’s clients to develop collaborative alliances and projects for mutual benefit. She’s a great believer in helping clients in their profile raising through approaches that are right for them but which also support and give back to the wider sector.

Previously, Jenny helped develop several specialist trade and B2B communications agencies, working with clients in the branding and marketing services arena, and before that with technology focused PR agency, Text100.

Jenny has a love of the natural world and walking with her beloved sausage dog, Dot. She is a keen photographer, sharing her pictures on Instagram as @jenturnerpr, and she’s also a licensed Thames Mudlarker, exploring the foreshore between the tides in the hunt for historic artefacts.

Melanie May, Account Director, Content Editor & Reporter

As a former Haymarket editor, Melanie is a highly experienced journalist and copywriter. She has been an integral part of the Turner PR team since 2010, bringing invaluable insights from her former life as a journalist and editor at several B2B titles. With an exceptional eye for detail, Melanie works across our client base creating quality news and feature content for trade media and blogs, client newsletters and websites.

In her own time, she’s a keen runner, photographer and volunteer for the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, where she helps to keep track of the local herds of sheep and Dexter cattle. 

Sophie Flint, Account Manager

Sophie has ten years’ experience in journalism and PR, working with some of the UK’s leading charities, such as Parkinson’s UK. She is experienced in B2C and B2B communications in both the charity and commercial worlds, including delivering copywriting and public relations expertise to some of the UK’s top-ranked law firms. Sophie is a sharp and strategic communicator with a nose for the best angles with which to optimise her clients’ positioning and profiles.

In her own time, Sophie enjoys being out in nature, practicing yoga, and spending time with her family.

 Dave Gooderham, Account Manager

Dave is an experienced journalist, having worked at the East Anglian Daily Times in Suffolk for more than 10 years before moving into the charity sector and joining his local hospital as its Fundraising Manager. He has since returned to his writing roots as a specialist PR and social media consultant.

Away from work, Dave’s passion is his young family and football – coaching an Under-9s team in his native West Suffolk.
