The media manager at one of Scotland's best-known charities is to go freelance, as a PR consultant.
Christina Cran, who is based at Shelter Scotland, is to set up her own PR consultancy, with charities, SMEs and not-for-profit organisations within her sights as prospective clients.
She has been at Shelter Scotland for five years and she has already been appointed communications officer for Scottish Cycling, the governing body for cycling in Scotland.
She is also planning to write a novel.
She leaves on Friday.
