Long-term supporter makes his mark for 150th anniversary

21st February 2019


This year local children’s charity Wood Street Mission is recognising its 150th year of providing help
and support to struggling families in Manchester and Salford. The charity has updated its branding to
mark the occasion with a graphic created by Salford-born Trevor Johnson, Design Director of the
Havas Lynx Group.

“Trevor has been a long-term supporter, passionate about what Wood Street Mission has meant to
the local community and the families we have been able to help over the last 150 years. Trevor’s
connection with Wood Street Mission goes back generations, and he himself attended our youth
club as a teenager. We are delighted he has designed this as a gift to us for our 150th anniversary,
incorporating our current logo and recognising the heritage of the charity. We want to use our
anniversary to acknowledge the many children and families who we have been able to help over the
years, thanks to those who so generously support us, but also raise awareness of the number of
children still living in poverty in our local area today. We are grateful to Trevor for his continued
championing of our cause.”
Des Lynch, Manager – Wood Street Mission

“It’s a real privilege for me to continue to be involved with Wood Street Mission and to support such
a great charity to help those in need locally in my home cities, and I’m delighted to be able to assist
the Wood Street team with my professional design experience and expertise, to mark this very
special milestone occasion.  I’m sure this anniversary year will be as successful for them as the last 149!”
