when hosting the event would not be very cost-effective if the final result made no impact. Consequently this idea was not suitable. We brainstormed again and came up with the idea of distributing questionnaires within the community and using the feedback to determine the best approach. Through the feedback we found that the best idea was to distribute leaflets within the community and advertise leaflets in shop windows as many people in the community were not very aware of world poverty. However we were not exactly sure of which households. By distributing leaflets to every household we would be sure that those who were not aware would be informed and those who were aware would be unformed further and be encouraged to make a difference. Thereafter, we listed various shops in our community in places which were visited a lot. A key area was Whalley Range. After listing different shops our group came together after school and visited the shops listed to ask if we could advertise posters regarding world poverty in their shops. After this we planned to create the leaflets and posters as a group whilst ensuring that everyone fulfilled their individual roles.The Financial manager calculated the costs of the materials needed to produce the leaflets and posters, discussing how to save on costs with the group. This helped guide our group when buying the materials needed for the products. Moreover, The information we gathered was incorporated in the leaflets and posters and edited to be concise. Images from internet explorer were also used and the team leader ensured that these images were relevant. Using Microsoft Publisher, professional and sophisticated leaflets were created and statistics and facts were highlighted in a bold font for emphasis. The same process took place with the poster and both products mimicked the same design. Whilst creating the leaflets and posters, the Group supervisor and the Time manager fulfilled their roles in ensuring we were on task. ...read more.
