Daily Mail Story – Case Study

We supply hundreds of stories to the Daily Mail and other publications each week. Here’s just one example:

Recently we got in contact with the Daily Mail about autistic schoolboy Hayden Geraghty, aged seven, who couldn’t talk.

Amazingly he found his voice when he watched Major Tim Peake travel into space – and it inspired an incredible passion for space.

His mother Caroline got in touch with us because she was so proud of Hayden – but wanted to make sure the story was handled properly and sensitively. In addition we ensured Caroline and Hayden received the highest fee possible.
