Half Marathon success for We Are Promotional Products.
Managing directors, Dean Jones and Joshua Weaver and Marketing Executive, Adam Thomas from We Are Promotional Products; a printing and branding company specialising in the production and supply of promotional material, based in Welshpool, Mid-Wales, recently took on the challenge and completed the Oswestry Half Marathon in aid of local charity and education centre Derwen College. We Are Promotional Products’ fundraising efforts managed to raise over £600, a staggering amount towards the college’s fundraising target.
We Are Promotional kindly organised and donated custom branded T-Shirts with the Derwen College’s logo, for all those running for the college to help raise more awareness. The local college; which offers inspirational learning, development and care for people with learning difficulties, has a printing facility on site, where students learn about printing techniques such as screen printing and dye sublimation printing. We Are Promotional Products encourage the learning of printing and branding processes and were pleased to be supporting such a worthy cause.
As well as donating branded merchandise for the event, We Are Promotional Products gifted over £400 in total through various promotional items for the college. This was the first event of its kind in the local area and was very well supported, with one of the event ambassadors being world record holder Amy Hughes who holds the record for the most marathons in consecutive days, 53 in 53 days around Britain (no pressure!). This was Managing Director Dean Jones’ first half marathon attempt, and although the training was relentless it was all worth it in the end, finishing with a time of 2hours 03minutes.
The Derwen College is celebrating its 90th year this year and We Are Promotional Products will continue to support this great charity with future fundraising and promotional items.
