Keepme Bags ran a festive campaign for the second time called ‘Race to Print 200,000 Cotton Bags’, with the winning company choosing who to donate the £2,000 prize fund to.
Allwag Promotions of Hatfield Peverel in Essex was the winning company after successfully completing the race. Angela Wagstaff and her team decided to split the £2,000 prize between two Essex-based children’s charities.
Brainwave of Witham and KYDS of Tiptree were the nominated charities.
Ms Wagstaff commented: “We selected Brainwave as they do amazing work with children suffering from disabilities and learning difficulties, unlocking their potential via educational and physical therapies. Likewise KYDS is a youth drama society that aims to unlock and develop children’s potential through performance arts.”
Anne Morton and Lauren Harris of Allwag joined Ms Wagstaff and Keepme’s commercial director Steve Anderson for a tour of Keepme’s new Greenhithe facility, receiving their winning cheque during their visit.
Mr Anderson added: “Being a relatively new father I was delighted that Angela and her team selected not one, but two children’s charities to receive our charitable donation. Allwag Promotions are a valued customer and we’re so pleased to help them make a difference to worthy organisations close to their heart.”
Keepme Bags has a strong commitment to its corporate responsibilities and ‘Race to Print’ is just one of the initiatives that enable the company to share its ongoing success with those less fortunate.
