• Blake partners with School in a Bag as part of CSR program

        • Blake has announced that as part of its enhanced Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, the company will be partnering with the charitable organisation School in a Bag, forming an ongoing relationship that they hope will benefit the lives of thousands of school children across the globe. 

          The partnership was formally launched on 4th July when Blake held a Red themed School in a Bag Charity Day, where over £10,000 was raised to go towards funding for the School Bags. This partnership has been the result of significant work and development from both Blake and School in a Bag. 

          Tim Browning, Innovation and Marketing Director at Blake said, “the Blake School in a Bag partnership marks the start of a new phase in our CSR Responsibility program. We are keen to ensure that we can measure the impact of all our activity. 

          “This launch event and the funds we have contributed has meant that over 600 children will now have the materials they need to learn. We would like to thank all our business partners who engaged with us to exceed our first target and look forward to their ongoing support. Together we can make a significant and sustained difference to the lives of these children.” 

          Luke Simon, School in a Bag’s Founder added, “through initial meetings and discussions, we were already very impressed by the detail and thinking that had been put in to the School in a Bag Blake Envelopes launch day across all departments within the business and we were very honoured and excited to be included in it. The novel way of raising money on the day through sales made was so clever and seeing the financial total grow into funded SchoolBags added great suspense and reward to a fantastic day. We are so delighted that the ambitious target was surpassed and incredibly grateful to everyone at Blake Envelopes for their positivity and hospitality before and during the day. We look forward to showing everyone the beneficiaries of the SchoolBags they funded in Romania and Zambia.”
