The Telford printers Graphics and Print take their commitment to the community very seriously and have already engaged in eight activities already this year to help support charities and disadvantaged people to having a better life. Help for Heroes, Comic Relief, Mustard Tree, St Georges Crypt and March 100 have all benefited from the generosity and support shown by the Graphics and Print team so far this year but hot on the heels of sponsoring Donna Smith to run the London marathon on behalf of Ovarian Cancer Action, the award winning Telford Printers have just embarked on a further sponsorship of Shrewsbury based Jason Alvis, who ran the Chester Half Marathon on the 12th May, on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Managing Director Martin Kells, is delighted at the community commitment shown by his team at Graphics and Print and believes this support is more important than ever: “We all know that the recession is hitting hard and people don’t have the same amount of money or time to throw into community activities and charitable donations as maybe they did a few years ago but this is exactly the reason we have been passionate about accelerating our activities in 2013. Charities need help more than ever before as they see a reduction in donations from people who just can’t afford to pay the bills for themselves let alone provide charitable donations, so we decided to double our efforts in 2013 to help as many charities as possible. By way of one example, four charities have just benefited to the tune of £800 from our Fantasy Football League competition which finished earlier this month. Fibromyalgia Association UK, The British Heart Foundation, Faith In Families and Tommy’s all received donations as a result of the winning individuals choosing these organisations as their chosen charities. So our sponsorship of Jason Alvis was merely the next in a long line of activities we already have planned for 2013, to ensure we keep up our commitment that every one of our employees will spend a minimum of two days a year, during work time, supporting great causes. Frighteningly, one in three of us will get cancer and will need the support of great organisations like Macmillan, who aim to improve the lives of people affected by cancer. We are really proud of Jason. It was his first ever half marathon and he really took a step into the unknown because he had never run this distance before. His time of 1 hour 55 minutes is something to be proud of. Well done Jason and keep up the great work for Macmillan.”
