Smiths News PLC launches Community Link-Up

Thursday 11th April 2013

Smiths News PLC is doing something new in 2013. They are linking up in more ways than one. Today sees the launch of a new community initiative as part of their corporate responsibility programme.

This year, ‘Community Link-Up’ will focus on three key areas; charity fundraising, volunteering in the community and colleague involvement.

Talking about Community Link-Up, Mark Cashmore, Group Chief Executive, Smiths News PLC said:

“Last year's community programme was a great success. Right across the business we had individuals and teams getting involved and raising money for national and local charities. This year we’ve come up with some new initiatives to help staff support charities and community projects that are important to them.”

Each business within the Smiths News Group, Smiths News, Bertrams and The Consortium are organising flagship fundraising events for staff to get involved in.  Volunteering schemes have also been set up for staff to work with the Bath Rugby Foundation and the National Literacy Trust.

A flagship cycling event has also been organised for all employees across the Smiths News Group. This year, a bike ride will take place in September 2013, starting in Paris and will finish in Swindon. More information about the event will follow.
