Colourful support for the NHS

A Chester-Le-Street printing firm has helped to keep children entertained during lockdown in the UK, while also raising vital funds for the NHS.

PBL Print was founded almost 30 years ago, but like a number of companies during the coronavirus pandemic, found that its turnover had dropped as a direct result of the government-imposed lockdown.

However, the business realised it could make use of this time, equipment and skill while helping the NHS. The end idea was a 30-day colouring book and activity planner, designed to entertain children and keep them at home to help prevent the spread of the virus.

For each activity book sold, £1 will be donated to the NHS to help the efforts to battle the coronavirus. 

We’ve kept costs down as much as we could and each one includes postage, packaging and a £1 donation to the NHS

The A4 sized colouring book and activity planner comes with free crayons and has a 30-day calendar to help plan a child’s day for the parents currently playing the role of teacher.

Sales director for PBL, Chris Murley, explains: “Our creative team have really gone into over-drive and delved back into their childhoods to come up with this product, which we hope will solve the problem of children looking for activities to do at home. We’ve kept costs down as much as we could and each one includes postage, packaging and a £1 donation to the NHS.

“It’s helped us to keep our staff busy and we hope it will keep thousands of young people occupied constructively too.”

The book is available here: www.liketoprint.co.uk with £1 from every sale going to the NHS.
