Friends of Charnock

Mobile friendly website for a Sheffield Voluntary Group

Brief

Friends of Charnock Rec are a Sheffield group of local residents who formed a group to raise funds to renovate their local park that was run down and not an inviting place for children to play.

Stream7 Creative were approached by the group to create their online presence including a full website design and build along with the setup of social media.

Solution

The website was first created by Stream7 Creative in 2007 and has just undergone a complete redesign to improve usability through a ‘mobile friendly’ responsive design that ensures that the site looks perfect on desktop, tablets and smartphones.

The site is based on the MODX CMS that allows members of the group to easily update the website with new content. A blog allows the group to keep the community informed, along with a gallery and progress chart showing their achievements.

Result

The website is proving a great success with the group and also with the public. Visitor numbers to the site have increased and the site has also proved to be a valuable fundraising tool allowing prospective funders information on the group and their aspirations.
