Facing COVID-19: The County Durham printer supporting parents and the NHS during lockdown

A North East printing firm has innovated in order to deal with two issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

PBL Print, which is based in Chester-Le-Street, has designed and produced educational materials for parents home-schooling children during the coronavirus disruption.

The company created a 30-day ‘stay at home’ colouring book and activity planner designed to engage children in fun educational activities while they are under lockdown.

Established nearly 30 years ago, PBL Print offers a range of printing services to both the public and private sectors.

In addition to supporting parents staying at home with children, the firm is also affirming its commitment to the NHS by donating £1 for each book sold.

Sales director Chris Murley explained: “Our creative team have really gone into overdrive and delved back into their own childhoods to come up with this product which we hope will solve the problem of children looking for activities to do at home.

“We’ve kept costs down as much as we could and each one includes postage, packaging and a £1 donation to the NHS.

“It’s helped us to keep our staff busy and we hope it will keep thousands of young people occupied constructively too.”
