CMYUK gives local charity a makeover
The Shrewsbury Food Hub recently acquired a brand-new depot, enabling the charity to double the amount of free surplus food it supplies to local community groups.
In addition, the new hub is being used as a training base to expand the model across Shropshire, but although it was perfect in terms of size, it was extremely plain in terms of décor.
Accordingly, CMYUK, the Shrewsbury-based supplier of wide-format printers, cutters and materials, offered to decorate the Hub with a custom-made wallpaper that illustrates the journey that surplus food takes and reflects the charity’s core values.
For the wallpaper, CMYUK decided to use its own-brand UTACK material, a thin, woven self-adhesive polyester fabric that is easy to print and install and which can be removed without leaving any unsightly residue.
With the Hub due to be officially launched in early November, CMYUK was working to a tight deadline, but managed to design and print the wallpaper before enlisting the help of another local company, Shelley Signs to apply it.
Katy Anderson, co-founder of the Shrewsbury Food Hub said: “We are so grateful to the team at CMYUK, which gave so much of its time and provided the materials for free. The Hub has been completely transformed. It’s the first thing people mention when they come in and it gives our volunteers a really cheery environment in which to do their sorting out. We cannot thank them enough.“
Robin East, Group Director at CMYUK said of the project: “It’s been a pleasure to help Katy and the team at the Food Hub. They now have a much brighter environment for the volunteers to work in. I wish them all the best.”
