UTAX (UK) Ltd has recently launched The UTAX Community Print Project – #UTAXGivesBack (#CSR #CharityPrinting). The new initiative provides free printing services on an “As Agreed” basis to pre-approved community events and charitable activities across the UK.
It means that charities and local not-for-profit organisations including Parish, Village and Town event organisers, with little or no access to printing facilities, can now apply to have their event publicity material or public information notices printed. From colourful A5 programmes, booklets and A4 flyers to black and white A3 posters, UTAX is able to offer a wide variety of printing options to accommodate most requirements.
Sarah Mackay, Head of Marketing at UTAX (UK) said, “as you might expect, we have a large technology suite here at our Head Office with the complete range of our latest printing equipment. It makes perfect sense for us to utilise our advanced printers, when not in use, to help community groups and projects from near and far with their printing requirements. In these increasingly demanding economic times, companies need to be imaginative in how they can support their local communities.”
The company has recently helped several organisations including:
SpecialEffect, a charity helping people with disabilities to enjoy video games. UTAX helped with their Twin Town Challenge, a fun, team-based car challenge.
Longcot Ocktaves, an annual fundraising concert for St Mary’s Church, Longcot near Shrivenham. UTAX printed their promotional flyers and posters.
Newbury & District NCT, a new parenting support company. UTAX has helped with a range of projects including printing collateral for their Nearly New Sales and Annual Members Meeting.
St. Thomas' Infant School in Woolton Hill, Newbury. UTAX printed their Christmas Fair posters.
Lambourn School PTA. UTAX printed their Summer Fair Lucky Programme.
Bishop’s Castle & Clun Valley Community First Responders’ (CFR) Scheme. UTAX printed their new volunteer recruitment posters.
Interested community groups simply need to complete an application form that can be found on the UTAX website (www.utax.co.uk/community) giving their community group or organisation’s details, the reason for the print job and details of what they require.
