Yorkshire Based Label & Nameplate Manufacturer supports local charities!Member News
Made in Yorkshire members GSM Graphic Arts, The Label, Nameplate & Fascia Specialists, recently announced that in September 2019 they raised a further £700 towards charity, through a cake sale and the Great North run, building on a proud, and continued tradition of supporting charities.
Throughout the year, two GSM Graphic Arts team members had trained hard to race in the Great North Run. Exchanging their label manufacturing attire for a pair of trainers, on Sunday 8th September they raced across the North East to complete the 13.1-mile long race for Brain Tumour Research and Macmillan.
On September 26th, GSM Graphic Arts hosted a Macmillan Coffee Morning. Producing fairy cupcakes, chocolate cookies and Victoria sponges instead of aluminium labels, stainless steel nameplates and plastic fascias the GSM employees embraced the cake day that saw the company raising monies for a great cause.
This year also includes other charitable events, including team members and their dog, who took part in a Poppy Run to raise money towards British Legion. Earlier on in the year, GSM Graphic Arts also donated a sum towards Thirsk Clock, a local charity. In addition to donating 2 iMac PC’s and a cheque donation for the MAP Charity.
Speaking about the labelling manufacturers approach to charity, and what it means, Paul Wright, CEO of GSM Graphic Arts, stated: “The team here at GSM are a tight-knit bunch and we are proud at how we demonstrate such a strong sense of social responsibility, team members at all levels partake. We recognise we are very fortunate and are always ready to pull together to help others who may be experiencing difficult periods in their lives. Events such as these and the upcoming Elf Day on December 6th in aid of Alzheimer’s Society help to cement a strong team ethic which can only improve the working environment.”
However, this success won’t stop here. The company has also announced that in 2020 they will be introducing a donation match scheme whereby any money that is raised will be matched by GSM Graphic Arts.
