As you know, we are always looking for ways in which we can ‘put something back’ into the local community especially when it comes to helping and inspiring young people.
We were recently contacted by Friends of the Blake School Association who run fundraising activities for the PTA at the Blake School in Witney.
They are currently raising pre-Christmas funds by helping the children to design cards which will be printed and, along with printed mugs, sold to family and friends.
We were asked if we could help out by supplying carrier-bags that the cards and mugs could be taken home in. The school explained that as they have Eco status the bags would need to be ‘green’, with handles and strong enough to carry the mugs… No Problem!
Our Polycomp checkout bags were perfect for the job and we were more than happy to let the school have some for free.
Sharon Wise from the fundraising association, said, “The Friends of the Blake CE Primary School in Cogges are thrilled at the kind donation of 2,000 Polycomp bags, this will help us with our annual Christmas Card Project. Each child designs a Christmas card and the image is then sent to a printing company, each child has a free sample card to keep and the chance to order more cards, gift tags and mugs, who can resist a reindeer hand print from your little one! Last year the Friends made £600 profit and have every expectation of exceeding that this year. Once again thank you to all at Polythene UK for your support!”
