I thought this might be useful. I've created a template for posters which you can add in your own photos, etc in a simple drag and drop format.
If you don't use Canva, it's a great tool for designing social media bits, posters, etc and it's free to use. I've also attached our logo and swoosh for you to use. Our red and blue colour codes can be found below also.

You don't have to use it, I just thought it might be useful :)
