We are delighted to announce we have won the CSR Initiative of the Year category at the Packaging Awards that took place on Friday 12th November 2021 at The Brewery in London.
For many years we’ve been making sizeable sums and charitable donations to local charities but have always felt the impact has never been measurable. Out of that launched our Giving Hope Through Education programme.
School in a Bag is a simple solution created to help poor, orphan, vulnerable and disaster affected children throughout the world. Each School Bag is filled with stationery, learning resources, and eating utensils that will enable a child to write, draw, colour, calculate, express themselves and above all learn. An education for these children can provide hope and a lifeline to a future out of hardship – on a world scale, educating the future generation is a key force towards human development and global stability.
Tim Browning, Innovation Director at Blake said, “I am thrilled that we have won the CSR initiative of the year category at the Packaging Awards this year. At Blake we are all committed to making a difference to the world we live in and as market leaders in the world of envelopes and postal packaging, literacy is really at the heart and root of all that we are. I am delighted that we have been recognised for our hard work and commitment to our Giving Hope Through Education programme and we look forward to enhancing our programme further in the years to come.”
