A PR agency in East Lancashire has plenty to shout about after clinching a trio of top honours.

Rawtenstall-based Viva notched up the hat-trick at trade body CIPR's North West Pride Awards.

They walked away with golds in the best use of digital, best use of influence relations and outstanding small public relations consultancy categories.

Judges told guests at the Manchester Midland Hotel ceremony that there were impressed by their "incredibly clear and very ambitious business strategy which they are on track to deliver".

Tony Garner, Managing Director of Viva, said: “Viva set itself very clear objectives for this year around delivering tangible results for clients.

"As a result, we have won a series of new business accounts in 2019 worth more than £120,000 and we have also won prestigious project work. Our retention rate has improved, and all our key and medium clients have been retained.

"We are living proof that you don’t need a city centre postcode to achieve great results for your clients."
