A tireless fundraiser from Rossington has raised thousands of pounds for Weston Park Cancer Charity in memory of his beloved wife Brenda. As a tribute to his wife, Acker Shaw, aged 69, pledged to raise £52,000 for Weston Park Cancer Charity which equates to one thousand pounds for every year of Brenda’s life. His mission started in 2000 as a thank you for the “exceptional care” Brenda received throughout her treatment for breast cancer at Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield.
A charity-run hospice has unveiled exciting plans for a brand new art exhibition and sale to be held annually in North Lincolnshire. The first Lindsey Lodge Hospice Annual Art Exhibition and Sale will feature the work of renowned local artist Dennis Nash, and local artists and photographers are also being invited to showcase their work at the fundraising event at Scawby Village Hall, between Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 April.
Did you know research shows that people who volunteer are on average happier and more fulfilled? So it is not only the charity that gains from your helping hand. It can improve your CV or professional development, and for others, such as the retired, it can inject fresh purpose in your life. Most important, you meet likeminded people, have fun and make a difference for local animals in need.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
