“When you get to an age you rather not reveal, Facebook, Twitter and the likes are a little daunting. Donna has helped me understand how various systems work and when comparing to same period last year (during advertising) my takings were 67% up. Donna’s knowledge is so valuable on a vast amount of subjects. She is the modern day Yellow Pages. When looking for extra business I would recommend her to anyone she dots the i’s and crosses the t’s. Where the ideas may be good, Donna brings them to life in front of the GP (General Public) Wishing THE NORTH EAST HUB every success ion the future. I will be using your services in the future.” 20th April 2013

Recently Donna has used the internet, blogging and social networks to such good effect she has possibly managed more to promote and support local business, charities and organisations with nothing more than a computer (and £5 in a biscuit tin) than certain “Development Agencies” ever have with huge multiple million pound budgets.
You need to stay in touch with her NE HUB project as it will bring benefits to your business, club or charity and if your in any sort of position to support this project you should do so. The NE HUB project is has the ideals and motivation of one honest and driven individual (Donna) and works well because of its honesty and single minded objective to support others.
I appreciate the support Donna has given to Design Aid and my clients and I will continue to support Donna and her project both as an individual and as Design Aid and I strongly recommend you do the same.
