Account Manager
Kennet Community Radio

Fran spent much of her childhood on her grandmother’s farm near Newbury before spreading her wings to travel the world. She has built her career in business by forming relationships with clients for national press, the hotel trade, social enterprise and digital content marketing.

After some time at More Radio in Sussex, Fran joined Kennet Radio. Community is at the heart of Kennet Radio and here lies the sense in the partnership with Berkshire Stairlifts & Newbury Mobility. Our goals are very much aligned, in engaging and improving the lives of the listener (who is the community) by addressing the issues that really matter to them. Radio is a fantastic way to reach all members of a community as they go about their everyday lives.

Kennet Radio wholeheartedly support the work of Jade and team, to bring accessibility into the discussion, before it’s asked for. Newbury Mobility & Berkshire Stairlifts are sponsoring Kennet Radio drivetime and we have formed a truly organic relationship.

Jennie Berry

Disability Social Media Influencer
Wheelie Good Life

As a full time wheelchair user, Jennie uses her platform to raise awareness on a number of issues within the disabled community. Through video and visual content, Jennie documents her day to day life online to highlight both physical issues and the way she is perceived by society.

Sitting on over 30,000 followers collectively within her channels, Jennie uses her online presence to pose questions, get people thinking, and break down the traditional barriers that disabled people come to face on a daily basis. We met Jennie through one of her LinkedIn posts, which touched upon the topic of disabled employment and how she was struggling to get past application stage when disclosing a disability.

We struck up a relationship through a number of Zoom calls throughout Covid 19 and realised that we share many of the same passions and values! We are hoping to work together in the near future on our social media and marketing.
