Printmeit for Percy Hedley Foundation

Local printing company from Stanley Co Durham have gone beyond excellent customer service by supporting the region’s largest disability charity the Percy Hedley Foundation.

The company, which works with companies all over the UK offering our print and design services, has a reputation for supporting local good causes, Managing Director Adam Chetter said “Our company is led by our philanthropic principles trying to support as many organisations as possible. We are proud to support charities and businesses by offering high quality printing at low prices. As a leading flyer printing company, it is our aim to provide an excellent service from an approachable and friendly team.”

Recently the company support included sponsoring a local youth football team, supporting the education of two children in Nepal and producing a calendar in aid of a local hospice.

Carole Harder the Foundation’s CEO said “In the run up to our Diamond Jubilee year we are working hard to ensure we build long standing working relationships with local companies. Adam and the staff at Printmeit have supported us for years with their quality printing services and now to be their chosen Charity of the Year is the icing on the cake. We are looking forward to working together across all our services.” was setup by Adam following an impressive career working in the Third Sector producing community music and media products. In 2005 Adam set up the UK’s first ever Community Interest Company, a form of Social Enterprise, called TalentStar. He is still director of TalentStar, working regularly on social projects with the likes of Barnardos, Durham County Council, Newcastle Council to name a few.

Part of the Charity of the Year work the two organisations will be doing together is the development of an arts award. The pupils, students and service users of the Foundation will produce artwork and photographs of this work will form part of the regular customer newsletter, Customer will be asked to vote for their favourite piece of art and the award will be presented at the end of the academic year to the pupil, student of service user who receives the most votes.

Carole said “Often companies think about how to get involved with charities like ours. Some think that it is all about raising funds, but whilst that is vitally important it can be so much more that that. The arts award is a unique opportunity for all our service users and Adam’s customers to get involved in the Charity of the Year project.”
