Penalty Shoot Pays Out To Local Charity

Caroline Dalton and G&P MD, Martin Kells

Friday 6th September saw an open day at Graphics and Print, the Telford based commercial printers. The open day was organised following the recent merger between Graphics and Print and TAWs Printers, to provide customers and future customers with an opportunity to learn more about the benefits of the merger, to meet the new team and find out more about the products and services that are now available. The day proved a real hit with the visitors and none more so than Caroline Dalton from Tanners Wines, who won a charity penalty shoot-out competition as part of the open day, beating off competition from approximately 70 participants.

Here’s Managing Director Martin Kells to explain more: “When we started to plan the open day, we knew that we wanted to share some of the obvious messages with our clients such as how the merger affected them, what benefits it will bring and what services we now have the capability of providing but we also wanted to use the day to generate some money for charity as we have a huge focus within Graphics and Print, on helping the community that we serve. So we decided that off the back of the football predictions competition which launched last month for a second season running, we would hold a penalty shoot-out for all attendees, with the opportunity for one lucky winner to walk away with £200 to donate to the charity of their choice and a further £50 of store vouchers for themselves. Right up until about 3.00 o’clock in the afternoon, Rachel from EPMA was winning the competition but she was beaten with one of the last shoot-outs to take place on the day, by Caroline Dalton who really did put a lot of us to shame with four superbly struck penalties. Assuming that England do make it to the World Cup in Rio, I think they could learn a thing or two from Caroline who was lethal from the spot. Congratulations Caroline and I hope your chosen charities enjoy receiving your donations.”

Caroline chose to donate the £200 prize money to a local charity, Shrewsbury Drapers Alms Houses, who provide housing for the elderly. Everyone at Graphics and Print was delighted to see the award going to a local organisation as they take their responsibility for looking after the local community very seriously. They are the only commercial printer to make a commitment that each of its employees will spend a minimum of two working days a year, during work time, to work in the community, helping under privileged people to have a better life.
