Integrity Print’s CEO Plants 250 trees With the Woodland Trust

By | News

In March, Integrity Print’s Chief Executive Officer, Mark Cornford, planted 250 native trees on his land in South Somerset, through the Woodland Trust’s MOREWOODS project.

The Woodland Trust’s MOREWOODS project is a supportive service designed to allow landowners to plant a large number of trees in a streamlined, efficient way. With their support and advise Mark has already planted 1500 native trees on his land. The additional 250 trees include a variety of different native species, such as Field Maple, Common Alder, and Downy Birch, to increase the diversity of the existing project.

Mark’s most recent tree planting project was back in 2020, when 1000 trees that were planted. During this period, he was joined by children from the Butleigh C of E Primary school, who were invited to learn about trees and to take part in the project. This turned out to be a positive day, as headteacher of the school, Helen Caines noted that the children “absolutely loved it”!

When discussing this project, Mark explained:

“I have always felt my best when I am making efforts to reconnect with nature. We have space in these fields, so I feel you can never plant too many trees. It is good for the environment, good for biodiversity and wildlife, and our local community seems to appreciate what we are doing. I can’t think of any reasons why I shouldn’t plant more! It is a positive thing not just for my own children, but for my children’s children and future generations.

It was good fun, a decent exercise, and a great excuse to get my knees muddy planting this latest batch.”

Mark’s project is one of many being undertaken by landowners, farmers, businesses and local authorities through the Woodland Trust. These projects have helped increase biodiversity, provide shelter, prevent soil erosion, and reduce the risk of flooding in rural areas throughout the UK. You can apply to take part in the MOREWOODS project via the Woodland Trust’s website.

We will look to continue our efforts this year, and hopefully make an even greater impact in 2023.

Integrity Print Sponsors Crispin School Student’s Nepal Trip

By | News

Integrity Print is very pleased to be able to sponsor Rose Sharland, daughter of Avalon Waste Management Director David Sharland, on her upcoming school trip to Nepal later this year. This trip will involve her undertaking an impressive long hike through the mountains of Nepal.

Rose will be departing on her trip on the 19th July this year and will be travelling for sixteen days. She will join pupils from both her own school, Crispin in Street, and nearby St Dunstan’s school in Glastonbury.

Their journey will begin by flying to Kathmandu via Singapore. The first two days will be spent in Kathmandu visiting markets and buying supplies for the hike. From the capital, they will travel to rural Nepal and stay with a farming family. As part of their school learning, they will learn how organic farming in Nepal fits into the sustainable tourism that they offer to travellers and will have the opportunity to help with the day to day tasks of the farm.

Once finished on the farm, they will begin the next part of their journey, a hike through the Himalayas. The hike will last for several days and involve staying in remote mountain cabins. Rose and her colleagues will have an incredible opportunity to experience the wildlife, scenery, and landscapes of Nepal.

This would not have been possible without the efforts Rose has made to fund the trip for herself. She has displayed an amazing work ethic by raising money in a variety of ways. Rose has found weekly work in both her local garden nursery and with a catering company. She has sown hundreds of seeds to be sold at her local farm shop, along with growing over a hundred pumpkin plants to be sold for Halloween.

But that is not all. From collecting money from the Glastonbury carnival, to running raffles for hampers, using her crafting skills to create and sell Christmas cards, and organising a family bingo night, Rose has demonstrated her incredible determination in raising money. Still to come, she even has plans for another bingo night, more plant sales and also the sale of homemade Easter cards during Spring.

Chief Executive Officer of Integrity Print, Mark Cornford, was impressed by her fund-raising efforts and wanted to offer further support:
“I feel excited for Rose and the prospect of such an amazing adventure. I believe it will benefit her and her fellow explorers but also the families and people that they will meet in Nepal. I think what she is doing is highly commendable, I am proud to support Rose on this incredible journey”.

We at Integrity wish you the best of luck, Rose!

Integrity’s Christmas Jumper Week Once Again Raises Funds For Mind

By | News

In the run-up to Christmas, Integrity Print once again held a Christmas Jumper Week fundraiser. Staff members were encouraged to wear their most festive attire during the last week before the Christmas break. As with last year’s event, all the money raised will be donated to the mental health charity, Mind.

As a charity, Mind specialises in providing advice and support to those struggling with their mental health. Their campaigns revolve around empowering people, improving available services, raising public awareness, and promoting a deeper understanding of traditionally stigmatised issues. Receiving donations means they can continue to maintain and improve the helplines that offer confidential advice to callers. Mind also helps professionally train certain staff members from companies that can then use their acquired skills to help improve their own workplaces.

The upheavals we have all experienced during the last few years have highlighted how important taking care of our mental health is. The increased cost of living, continuous drastic changes within our government, and the war in Ukraine all have an impact on general mental well-being. The support that Mind continues to give to those that need it, is an inspiration for all of us at Integrity Print. Having the opportunity to raise money for the charity while celebrating in a suitably festive way, was something we were more than happy to do. Boosted by further contributions from Integrity, this year the team was able to raise £382 for Mind!

While also fundraising for an important cause, Integrity’s Christmas Jumper Week has become a competition between staff members. A special prize is awarded to the person who has been deemed to have made the most effort with their festive attire. This time, a luxury Christmas Hamper was awarded to IT Support Admin Jay White, who impressed the team with not one but two jumpers he brought in during the week. Well done Jay!

Always Doing More

We will look to continue our efforts this year, and hopefully make an even greater impact in 2023.

Integrity Print Sponsors Butleigh Village Cricket Club

By | News

Integrity Print is pleased to sponsor Butleigh Village’s cricket club.

The sponsorship will last for 3 years, starting in 2023 and ending in 2025. Counting 60 members of the club, players will wear the Integrity logo on their sleeves as they take part in upcoming fixtures.

Following some excellent results last year, the club was promoted from playing in the Somerset Premier League to now playing in the West of England Premier League’s Somerset Division. This means their future games will be played at an even higher, more competitive level.

Butleigh is a small village, near the towns of Street and Glastonbury. The village is home to many friendly faces that enjoy the sport of cricket, football, and rugby just as they enjoy tending to their farm animals and the great outdoors.

Mark Cornford, Integrity’s Chief Executive Officer, comments:

Integrity has sponsored Butleigh Cricket Club for a number of years now, it is a vibrant, successful and inclusive club that I am keen to encourage to develop and grow.”

Integrity Print Sponsors Westfield FC

By | News

Integrity Print is pleased to sponsor Westfield FC’s first custom-designed training kit, which will be used across all three of their adult section teams. The kit will be worn twice a week at training sessions and worn before each match. The sponsored period will run for 2 years, 2022/23 & 2023/24.

Established in 1976, Westfield has grown considerably, with the introduction of Junior football in 2001, and Senior football in 2008. Today, the club stands strong with twelve teams in total. The sponsored men’s teams play their matches on Saturdays, in part of the Somerset County League and mid-Somerset and Bath & District Leagues. Westfield FC now has ten youth teams, and three men’s teams, giving 230 players the chance to partake in the exciting, and enjoyable environment of football.

Being able to support local teams in Midsomer Norton, in which we are based, is something Integrity has always been enthusiastic about. We believe we can perform better as a team when Integrity’s people – colleagues, friends, and family – can all have the chance to enjoy themselves when going out on to the field and playing competitive sport. The club is a community-based one, and knowing that we assist in keeping the club open for all aspiring players is something we take pride in.

The UK is currently going through trying times as well. With the fallout of Covid still with us, alongside increased pressures of the rising cost of living, it comes as no surprise that members of our community may be struggling with their mental health. With this sponsorship that helps contribute to making these games possible, we hope to see people improve their well-being by being able to play and watch football with their loved ones.

To all Westfield players taking part, we wish you the best of luck this season!
