A platform for Preston business,
charities & community members.

Welcome to Podio Magazine – a freely distributed publication across the PR1 area.

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

Our Winter / Christmas edition will soon be available via our three usual routes:

  1. Online – via our Podio Bookshelf
  2. On the street – via our smiling street team
  3. Via various city centre vendors

Our autumn edition was dedicated to and created in partnership with Preston Pride; showcasing our ability to create a bespoke, but still beautifully branded product for an event or organisation you may be part of.

Editor’s note

Podio, in Spanish, means Podium; the idea being that we offer a platform for the good in Preston. Our fab team of family members, volunteers & staff come from all walks of life. We mostly work on the project in our spare time but each share one passion: to develop a positive city centre resource which refuses to give in to negativity.

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
