MacMillan Coffee Morning The Pen Warehouse

The Pen Warehouse Supports MacMillan Coffee Morning

MacMillan Coffee Morning aims to raise money for the national cancer charity via the medium of cake. Team Members at The Pen Warehouse were happy to get involved recently – and not just because it involved a bevy of baked goods!

The annual event is held nationwide to help raise funds for the MacMillan Cancer Trust, an incredible charity that supports those diagnosed with cancer and their families. The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning was started in 1990 and last year raised over £29 million for this fantastic cause.

Members of our Customer Services Team bought in an impressive array of baked goods, including a mountain of muffins and a caboodle of cookies. These were sold in exchange for a small donation. It was an event everyone was happy to get their teeth into.

Well done to everyone at The Pen Warehouse who got involved. A total of £152.30 was raised and (probably) 5.2 million calories consumed.

Jeans for Genes Pen Warehouse

We Don the Denim for Jeans for Genes Day

We got involved in Jeans for Genes Day on 22nd September to help raise money for children with genetic illnesses. Team members from The Pen Warehouse and Snap Products wore their jeans to work in exchange for a small donation.

It’s estimated that around 500,000 children in the UK live with a life-altering genetic disorder – that’s around 1 in 25 of all UK kids.

Jeans for Genes Day is a national fundraising appeal for Genetic Disorders UK, a fantastic charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic illness. Since its inception in 1992, Jeans for Genes Day has raised more than £35 million to provide grants that transform many lives.

We were happy to do our bit to support such a worthwhile cause. Some got more carried away than others – Account Manager Sanam donned a denim skirt, top and a fetching matching cap.

Pen Warehouse Supports KidsOut Day

Rotary Club KidsOut Day

We regularly support our local Rotary club and were pleased to be invited to attend this year’s KidsOut Day. This fantastic event is organised by the KidsOut charity in conjunction with over 600 Rotary Clubs throughout the UK. The aim is to bring some happiness to the lives of disadvantaged children, giving over 29,000 kids the chance to have a fun day out.

Our Amanda Deallie and Grace Mitchell visited the event held at Aldershot Rugby Club and organised by 10 local Rotary clubs. This fun-packed day featured face painting, a bouncy castle and a petting zoo. Amanda and Grace even let the kids have a go.

Other activities included a barbeque, balloon race and a disco. For many of the children is was the first time they had experienced such things and rare opportunity to forget about disability, poverty and abuse.

Amanda Deallie said “the Aldershot KidsOut Day was a huge success, with over 700 children getting the chance to take part in a variety of activities. It was fantastic seeing so many kids enjoying themselves and The Pen Warehouse are proud to play a small part in supporting our local Rotary club.”

Advantage Supplier Award

Pen Warehouse Win Advantage Supplier of the Year 2017

We are delighted to have won Supplier of the Year at the recent Advantage Catalogue Group awards. A dinner was held at the Sopwell House Hotel in Hertfordshire on 3rd July 2017 to celebrate the launch of the latest Advantage catalogue and to recognise the group’s key contributors. The Pen Warehouse were voted the top supplier by group members.

Sales Managers Sophie Kelembeck and Nick Clewlow were pleased to accept the award on behalf of the company. Sophie said: “We were absolutely thrilled to receive this award. Having been nominated in previous years, to win it this time is testament to the hard work of our colleagues. We would like to thank all the Advantage group members who have taken the time to vote for us this year.”

This latest award complements our recent PAGE Gold Supplier Award. Click here for details.

Overwrapping on pen boxes

New Overwrapping Service Available

We’ve invested in new overwrapping machinery to offer a smart finishing touch to our pen boxes. When any of our executive ballpens, rollerballs or fountain pens are ordered in a presentation box, there is now the option of applying a clear cellophane wrapping to that box.

Not only does this protect the surface from scratches, it gives the product a retail-style appearance. It’s a cost-effective way to add to the perceived value of a promotional gift; it’s ideal for distributors wanting to sell to corporate clients as it gives the impression they are receiving a retail product rather than a promotional giveaway.

Clear cellophane wrapping is available today, with branded wrapping for our Pierre Cardin writing gifts coming soon.

Call 01252 400 270 or email sales@pens.co.uk for more details. Or click here to view our range of executive metal pens.
