Hand over big cheque!

Vale Press were pleased to sponsor the recent Business Sporting Club Dinner in Stratford-upon-Avon where the guest speaker was Eddie ‘the Eagle” Edwards.

We were really keen to be able to nominate our local heroes at the Shakespeare Hospice as the charity to benefit from the raffle proceeds.

At Vale we’re proud to have the hospice as one of our print customers and so it was a pleasure to hand over our “big cheque” for £1780 to help support the fantastic work the hospice does.

Our thanks again to those who donated and in particular to Jean & David Duckham who organised the dinner.

40 Years of Dedicated Service!

On Tuesday evening local community leaders from Chipping Campden and the surrounding parishes of Willersey, Mickleton, Ebrington and Weston-sub-Edge gathered at The Old Court Room in Chipping Campden to express thanks to the Firefighters of Chipping Campden Community Fire Station, who are on call 24/7 throughout the year.

In particular, though, they wanted to recognise – on behalf of the local communities – the outstanding commitment and dedication of Andy Hillsdon, who recently retired after serving at Campden for an incredible 40 years.

It was calculated that Andy had actually been on standby/call for something approaching 250,000 hours.

When Andy started his service Jim Callaghan was the Prime Minister, Abba were No. 1 in the charts and most of the current firefighters team at Campden hadn’t even been born!

Cllr Shaun Parsons, Chairman of Gloucestershire County Council, thanked Andy on behalf of the County Council and the wider communities of Gloucestershire, and was delighted to present Andy with a Certificate of Appreciation.

Vale Press help to raise £165,000 at Poppy Ball!

For several years Vale Press Ltd have worked with the organisers of the Poppy Ball supplying various printing requirements.

We’re delighted that this year’s ball raised the fantastic sum £165,000 for The Royal British Legion – an organisation that needs no introduction for the very worthwhile work it does with the Armed Forces community – serving men and women, veterans and their families. For more information please see www.britishlegion.org.uk

The Poppy Ball is now held in London every two years and we’re already helping prepare for the next one in November 2019!
