EverythingBranded.co.uk were proud to support Soft Touch Arts at a fundraising barbeque on Friday, July 1.
The Leicester based charity are an award winning charity which uses arts, media and music activities as tools to engage with and change the lives of disadvantaged young people in the area.
The charity was established in 1986 and since then have helped and encouraged young people build confidence, find new hobbies and put them back on the right track.
Working alongside local MPs, police, fire service, schools and local authorities, their work tackles local and national problems such as gang culture, anti-social behaviour and unhealthy lifestyles through the use of creative arts.
With the weather thankfully holding out for the event the charity raised an impressive amount of money and gained good exposure.
Emily Johnston from Soft Touch Arts said: “Evolve IT consultants hosted a fundraising BBQ outside their office, with all funds coming to Soft Touch. The event saw other businesses from the business park attend to find out more about them, Soft Touch set up a stall with lots of materials and merchandise so that people could take things away to remember us, or pass them on.
Everything Branded donated us fantastic branded balloons, pens and wristbands, so we were able to give away branded merchandise. These were amazing, because the balloons really lightened up our stall, and wristbands are always a hit. The merchandise from Everything Branded was high quality, and so many people took some wristbands, our brand is becoming more recognisable.”
Paul Rowlett, Director of EverythingBranded.co.uk said: “We are always pleased to support charities such as Soft Touch, especially as they do such great work in our local area.
We are a company which has grown in Leicester and so we are always pleased when we can help charities which do work in the area we operate. We were proud to provide promotional merchandise to Soft Touch Arts and we hope it came in useful.”
