A free scheme designed to help local non-profit organisations, clubs and societies promote their work has been launched by the St Albans Podcast.

The podcast team, led by local broadcaster Danny Smith, aim to provide prominent free publicity to community groups from across the district.

Danny explained: “Giving a voice to and shining a spotlight on local voluntary non-profit organisations is at the heart of what The St Albans Podcast is all about.

“We want to tell our community all about the amazing work of so many people in the local voluntary sector.

“Through my nine plus years working on a daily local drive-time show, I came across hundreds of local groups, many I had not previously heard of.

“Hearing the stories of these stalwart local champions and the amazing work they do in our community was a humbling experience and I am delighted to be able to use the podcast to further help local groups.”

The first organisation to offer its support to The St Albans Podcast and join the Community Partners Scheme is the Abbey Theatre, which has a long history in the city and boasts a membership of over 300..

Its current chair, Martin Goodman was recently presented with a certificate by host Danny Smith, confirming membership of the Community Partners Scheme.
