Managing Director of GEL Studios, Graeme Leighfield said: ‘Over the years we’ve helped lots of local good causes. Making a difference has always been at the forefront of everything that we do at GEL Studios.

‘We know how tough the last year and a half has been for so many people. But we’ve drawn inspiration from the strength and compassion our community has shown each other. So, to show our appreciation, we’re launching our biggest giveaway ever.

‘We can’t wait to read about the amazing work that has gone on in our community and donate a bespoke website as a thank you from GEL Studios.

Good causes helped already

On the Gel Studios website you can read about some of the great local causes they’ve already helped. The Swindon Food Collective and Threshold, Swindon’s homeless charity to name but two.

For Swindon Food Collective

During the pandemic, Swindon Food Collective saw a drastic spike in the number of people who needed help and their website was struggling to keep up with demand.

We dramatically improved the web design and user journey, making it easier for users to find the information they need. We also increased the visibility of sections of the websites that were hard to find like ‘Become a member’ and ‘Corporate Sponsorship’.

Threshold

With Threshold, the brief was to help the charity debunk myths, change perceptions and create long-term awareness of homelessness in Swindon. We focused on improving the events and fundraising sections of the site and reduced behind the scenes admin for the Threshold team. Taking part in The Big Sleep out gave us a much deeper level of understanding of what those who are homeless face.
