Bobst UK & Ireland is celebrating another successful charity golf day to raise funding in aid of the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) Benevolent Fund.
The business has confirmed that its 2020 event held in September at The Abbey Hotel & Golf Club has raised in excess of £4,300. Supported by event sponsors, Bobst invited 13 teams comprising the business, its customers and suppliers, to play together, abiding by current safety regulations, and raise money for a fantastic cause.
DMRC has said that across three years of fundraising events, including golf days and assault course activities, Bobst and its supporters have now raised a total of £60,000 for the charity, which provides servicemen and women with specialist goods and services while undertaking mental and physical rehabilitation programmes at Standford Hall in the Midlands.
In addition, Bobst has collaborated with its industry partners in print and packaging solutions to create new DMRC collection boxes. Invaluable support came from print and packaging supplier, Jaymar Packaging, which used their pre-press department to design and layout the print profile, while die-cutting machinery tooling specialist, Lasercomb Dies, supplied the die-cutting and embossing tools, along with layout assistance and advice. Both Jaymar Packaging and Lasercomb Dies were represented at the recent golf day event.
The boxes, inspired by folder-gluing specialist at Bobst, Chris Isham, were brought to life at Bobst’s Competence Centre, Redditch, with NOVACUT 106 E die-cutter and EXPERTFOLD 110 A2 folder-gluer with SPEEDWAVE technology for enhanced precision in folding quality for crash-lock boxes.
Doris Morrison, Chief Financial Officer at Bobst UK & Ireland, commented, “We are delighted to once again raise a considerable amount for DMRC, to support the invaluable work the organisation does at its Stanford Hall premises for those dealing with complex and often life-changing injuries or trauma. The news that our fundraising for DMRC has now passed the £60,000 mark in just three years is fantastic news. Our team is motivated to make a real difference. Seeing this benchmark shows the result of the team’s hard work and is a credit to everyone involved.”
She concluded, “This is also the perfect time to announce that we are already hard at work planning our 2021 Golf Day event, which will take place in May, with the date to be confirmed. We would encourage those interested in taking part and helping to support a great cause like DMRC to book a place early!”
