Balreed has presented Proskills PrintIT! with a cheque for £1,000 to help fund its mission to educate students about the print and paper industries. Since 2005, PrintIT! has engaged with 2,000 schools and 140,000 pupils.
The money was raised through a ‘Pace or Pay Challenge’ held at Balreed’s Maidstone head office on March 6 when staff were able to bid for colleagues to run up to three miles on a treadmill. In total, 44 members of staff ran, walked and danced 84 miles on two treadmills.
Balreed is one of 10 companies taking part in PassIT!, which aims to raise as much money as possible for PrintIT! initiatives in the run-up to Duplo’s London Calling event in October.
