Freelance Friday

A pro-bono web design thing! I have been giving charities my time for free, for over 10 years.

What is Freelance Friday?

A pro-bono web design initiative I have been doing for over 10 years.


The charities I work for on these days will have my skills and expertise, in house for the day. I’ll advise, critique and generally help out with Web Design, Web Development, SEO, Social Media Strategies and all things digital.

I’ll pick a new charity each month to visit, and after my trip, I’ll write a detailed review of them, with details of what we did, how we did it etc… as well a write up of what the charity do on a day to day basis.

I am on the hunt for new charities to work with in 2023/24. So if you work for a charity, or know someone who does, please get in touch.


My reason for doing this, is to show smaller charities that they need to embrace digital technologies – whether it be responsive web design, mobile apps, or simply keeping a blog up to date. Lots of charities, for instance, want to know how to get their site ranking higher on Google or need to know how they can improve their social media range. I’ll cover a little bit of everything.

If you’d like to make a request to book me for a Friday, then please contact me as soon as possible and I’ll check my diary for the next available Friday.

Please note, I won’t have the time to make it to every single charity who contact me, so if I can’t make it to your charity, I apologise in advance.
