• Blake supports charity work in Australia and The Gambia

        • Blake has stepped in to help the Rapid Relief Team in their fight against the Australian bushfires by donating £10,000 to assist both the emergency services and victims of the fires.

          Over the past few months, with over 10 million hectares of the country engulfed in flames, Australia has been battling some of the worst bushfires ever known. Throughout this time, firefighters and volunteers have been battling night and day.

          The Rapid Relief Team has overseen the supply of more than 4.5 million litres of water from previously inaccessible water sources in remote locations to fire trucks on the front line.

          The charity also introduced its Operation Fire Relief initiative for those who have fallen victim to the fires, donating gift vouchers along with an RRT Family Food Box to all those rendered homeless.

          Blake is happy to have been able to support the Rapid Relief Team in these efforts and hope to have made a difference by bringing relief and support to Australia during their time of need.

          Alongside its support in Australia, Blake Envelopes has extended its work with School in a Bag to The Gambia.

          SchoolBags are the signature of the School in a Bag charity and could be the start of a new life for children in need, containing everything needed for them to receive a good education, as well as necessities such as eating materials and a reusable water bottle. 

          Joining the School in a Bag team on 15th January, Blake filled a container with educational resources to be sent to Gambian children, including 600 SchoolBags funded by Blake and around 600 pairs of shoes collected by its staff, along with classroom furniture donated by SIAB for schools who can’t afford the bare necessities.

          Luke Simon, Founder and CEO of School in a Bag said, “on behalf of the team here, we wanted to say a huge thank you to the Blake contingent who helped us pack on Wednesday.  It made such a difference having the additional hands (and muscle) and enabled us to do it all in one day.

          “Once again, thank you for playing your part in this fulfilling project which will make such a difference to the schooling of the children and the lives of the communities in The Gambia.”

          Blake and School in a Bag will be working alongside a charity local to The Gambia, Skoolz 4 Kids, whose insight and assistance will be invaluable when distributing the supplies to the Faraba Banta school.
