Print Industry Sports Calendar to raise funds for The Printing Charity

Print Industry Sports Calendar to raise funds for The Printing Charity

Over 100 guests from the printing and publishing industries attended the official launch at the RKB Gallery in of a 2012 print industry sports calendar to raise funds for The Printing Charity, a leading national UK charity for the printing and publishing industries.

This is the second year individuals and companies from the printing and publishing industries have donated their time and resources to produce a calendar to raise funds for the charity.

The 2012 calendar’s theme is ‘industry people as you’ve never seen them’, with each month featuring an industry figure in a sporting pose. Those who agreed to participate were from Apex, BPIF, Konica Minolta, Duplo, London College of Communication, Consorcio, Whitmar Publications, Ricoh, Heidelberg, Friedheim, Renz, and Premier Paper.

Stephen Gilbert, the charity’s Chief Executive, commented: “This is a wonderful industry collaboration led by Whitmar Publications on our behalf. Sonia Boriczewski photographed the industry figures for each month; design was provided by JKP Design & Illustration; paper by Premier Paper; printing by Konica Minolta; collating and trimming by Duplo; binding by Renz. Canon produced the launch event posters and RK Burt provided the gallery venue.

“Please spread the word about the charity. It’s your industry’s charity. We have the resources and we’re here to help.”

A donation of £10 is recommended per calendar, which can be ordered from Alison Braganza at The Printing Charity on 01293 649 366, email
