Not really in Calgary – or anywhere near a cable car, snow or a mountain!

Vale Press were, though, really pleased to be in Broadway to support a Fundraising Dinner at Russells Restaurant in aid of CASS & Friends.

fullsizeoutput_56dCASS & Friends was set up in early 2015 to offer financial support to young and aspiring athletes in the Cotswolds and South Worcestershire. The charity is based close to Broadway and Vale Press HQ.

Funded totally from public donations, CASS provide financial help to families with gifted sporting youngsters.

To read more about their great work and to read about some of the gifted, local young sportsmen and women, who CASS are supporting, please visit: www.cassandfriends.org

The Patron of the charity is an old friend of Vale Press – Eddie the Eagle, who told us that you will soon be able to see him back on TV – but we’ve promised not to divulge just what he will be up to!

Please consider printing locally with Vale Press and see our local communities benefit even more – we have fifty staff at your service running some of the world’s finest printing presses.

Vale Press are really pleased to be sponsoring a Sporting Club Dinner in Stratford-upon-Avon this evening – Thursday 9th November.

The hospice will benefit from the raffle proceeds at tonight’s event, where the guest speaker will be Gloucestershire-based ski-jumping superhero, Michael “Eddie the Eagle” Edwards, inspiration for the recent hit movie of the same name.
 Eddie the Eagle, real name Michael Edwards, took to the slopes at the Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, Alberta in support of local jumpers. Around 1000 fans watched the 1988 Olympian jump.  Featuring: Eddie Edwards Where: Calgary, Canada When: 05 Mar 2017

Vale Press Chairman, Lynden Stowe says: “Whilst at Vale we’ve printed for sporting legends, superheroes and even a prime minister, we never forget the often unsung local heroes who do so much good work.

That’s why we try and give something back to the communities where we live, work and play, and why we are so keen to see this evenings event raise money for our local hospice.

Doubly so, as the funds raised tonight will be donated in memory of former Chairman of the Sporting Club and local lawyer, Nigel Phillips – a good friend and counsel to so many local folk.”

We’re sure the evening will be a “soaring” success!
