A platform for Preston business,
charities & community members.

Welcome to Podio PR1 – and welcome to our new simpler website which merges our previous B2B & B2C versions together nicely.

For 2017, we committed to producing four seasonal printed publications & are continuously seeking key city-centre partners to work with.

Our Autumn 2017 edition will soon be available

via our three usual routes:

  1. Online here via our Podio Bookshelf
  2. Via our smiling street team members
  3. Via various city centre vendors

Our autumn edition is now available online; dedicated to Preston’s community Pride event on the city’s Flag Market and the official after party at Roper Hall – this Saturday, September 9th.

Editor’s note

Podio, in Spanish, means Podium; the idea being that we offer a platform for the good in Preston. 100% volunteer-led, we’re always open for new people to get on board. We come from all walks of life & all work on the project in our spare time but each share one passion: developing a positive city centre resource which refuses to give in to negativity.

PS) A big thank you to all who donated to my Just Giving Page – by all means, keep the donations coming in / continue to purchase entries for the Big Preston Raffle as monies earmarked for the Chennai Challenge will mean there’s more money to be spent on the orphaned children in India.

Podio’s Promise

Despite possessing a commercial flair, we are technically part of a broader PR1-based social enterprise Global Amigos. Podio PR1 is supported by approximately ten local community members; we aren’t in receipt of any funding but commit to the following aims:

To offer work experience & training

To support & promote Preston activity

To only ever publish positive articles

To celebrate Preston’s diverse communities
