Online print store, printed.com, has announced that they are to sponsor BardFest, a Suffolk-based music festival. All proceeds from the event will go towards helping Bardwell Cricket Club raise funds for its junior team.
Bardwell Cricket Club is a self-sufficient, local club, who rely on fundraisers and donations to supply kit, equipment and support to their teams, consisting of a junior section, women’s team and two senior teams. The BardFest 2013 music festival will run for two nights over 23rd to the 24th of August and will also receive sponsorship from Danish brewing company, Carlsberg.
printed.com is a company that prides itself on actively giving back to the community and have previously worked with charity Centrepoint in conjunction with their ‘Give As You Live’ fundraising widget. The company also run an apprenticeship programme, work experience for students and have a successful Charity Programme. Sponsoring BardFest music festival to support and raise funds for junior cricket is another opportunity for them to put back into the community.
Stephen Larder, chairman of the Bardwell Cricket Club, says: “As a club with over 60 junior members, fundraising is fundamental to our sustainability and vision of 'Cricket for All'. Without the support of printed.com it would be impossible for us to create events such as BardFest, with a professional festival look and feel, which drives attendance and also helps build a brand locally that everyone values.”
Nicholas Green, founder of printed.com says: “When it comes to the community, we want to lend support wherever we can. Getting involved with the Bardwell Cricket Club is a great opportunity for us to really help make a difference at a local level.”
In an aim to lead the print industry by example, printed.com will continue to support local events and to assist in raising funds and awareness for causes within local communities across the UK.
