Scottish corporate and consumer PR agency, Aura PR (Scotland) Ltd, has been appointed by Scottish based independent financial advisory company Save & Invest to handle its PR in the UK.

Headquartered in Glasgow, Save & Invest has been at the forefront of financial management innovation since it launched as the first UK High Street share shop in 1987.

Aura PR director Flora Martin commenting on the win said:

“We are delighted to be working with Save & Invest to re-launch the business in the UK. There are many exciting developments planned and as always the team behind the business is looking at new ways to deliver a top class service to investors at all levels.

“Having worked with the founding directors on the original launch in 1987 we are delighted to be involved with such an innovative business again.”

Aura will advise and manage media relations, social media, and event management for the company throughout the UK.

Save & Invest employs 60 people throughout the UK and has just opened an office in the Square Mile.

Additionally, Aura PR has also won the contract to handle the PR for the 2012 West End Festival, now in its 17th year. The agency will work to attract new sponsors and increase footfall at key events throughout the month of June, working with event partners to maximise opportunities throughout Scotland.

Laura Sutherland, managing director of Aura PR commented:

“The West End Festival is one of Glasgow’s most popular events, attracting over a million people to the west end throughout June.

“With the Glasgow office based in the west end and our personal experience of the Festival, we are excited to deliver a well rounded PR campaign in support of the event line up.”

The West End Festival line up will be launched at the end of April.
