The Outward Bound Trust, the leading UK charity working in experiential learning for young people, also received 100 cotton bags which they use as a thank you present for their supporters. “Having purchased balloons and other promotional items from 4imprint, a colleague was speaking to one of the sales team there who mentioned the Helping Hand programme to her” says Laura Watson, Events Co-ordinator at The Outward Bound Trust. “We applied and were delighted to receive 100 free cotton bags imprinted with our logo”. Established in 1941, The Outward Bound Trust provides learning and development opportunities through adventures in the wild to young people via their school or youth group.
When serial fundraiser Peter Jenkins was looking for a company to donate items that could be used to promote The Grace Allen Fund, the Helping Hand programme came up on a Google search. He applied and received 100 cotton bags which were initially handed out at a Santa run and are now being used at other fundraising events. “Every little bit helps when you’re a fundraiser,”
“Since launching the Helping Hand programme last summer we’ve received a growing number of applications each month. Our aim is to help as many good causes as we can with a small order of promotional products which they can then use to raise funds or awareness for their cause,” says Cheryl Jackson-Leafield, Marketing Manager 4imprint UK and Ireland. “Over the coming months there are T-shirts, umbrellas, wristbands and trolley coin keyrings up for grabs and we invite charitable organisations to apply when they see an offer that appeals to them.“
