printMAX cycle to Sign UK for Comic Relief

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

On Saturday 9th March, three members of the printMAX team donned their cycling shorts for Comic Relief. 

Marketing manager, Vicky Jarman and consumables consultants Caitriona Wood and Katie Fell cycled a total of 141 miles for charity. Between the three of them they cycled the total distance from their offices in Selborne, Hampshire to Birmingham’s NEC, the location of the annual Sign and Digital UK.

The Sign and Digital UK exhibition is an annual highlight for Roland’s most successful authorised dealer so printMAX were keen to incorporate it into their fundraising efforts.

Starting at 9am at a local gym, Energique, using 3 exercise bikes, the team took four hours to complete the ride.

"It’s definitely the furthest any of us have cycled in one go, I think our previous track record was a maximum of 10k so this was a huge challenge for all of us. We’re proud of the achievement and really grateful for the kind donations we’ve received to make this all worthwhile. Comic Relief is a fantastic cause, knowing the money goes a long way to help improve lives all over the world, we’re proud to have been able to give just a little towards this." Marketing Manager, Vicky Jarman.

In total the printMAX team raised £700 before gift aid, all of which going towards the 25th year of fundraising for Comic Relief.

Donations are still being welcomed at https://my.rednoseday.com/sponsor/printMAX you can also see the team at Sign and Digital UK at stand F30 April 30th – May 2nd
