Weekly news round-up: 22 to28 April

At JournoLink, every week we see many news stories being distributed through the platform that we believe deserve to be seen and shared. Whether they're inspiring, original, creative or simply interesting & relevant, we'd like more people to check them out. 

For this reason, we've decided to put together a weekly press release round-up to highlight the stories and PR campaigns we particularly liked so that both businesses and journalists have a chance to respectively get some ideas for their own campaigns or to find interesting stories to write about. Here we go.
