Nottingham-based greeting card company, The Art File (and its retail customers) are continuing to change lives as a result of sales of its cards. The Art File has just presented a cheque for over £22,000 to CLIC Sargent charity, meaning that over the last eight years the publisher has raised a staggering £127,620 in total for the charity.
The publisher, which publishes 33 Christmas designs for CLIC, donates 48p from every sale of its Christmas charity pack to the charity.
In a message to its retailer stockists, Ged Mace, managing director of The Art File said: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank our fantastic customers for continuing to support this great cause through our Christmas charity packs. Lives are being changed because of you.”
The publisher recently welcomed Amy White, trading support manager for CLIC Sargent to its head office earlier where she gave a talk about the important work that CLIC Sargent does with the help of companies like The Art File to raise money to support young people and teenagers who are facing cancer. Alongside this, the charity supports the families of those who have been diagnosed also with financial, physiological and social support and care.
Commenting on working with The Art File, Amy said: ‘‘We would like to thank The Art File for its continued support over this Christmas season. We are so very grateful for the wonderful support over the l years and are looking forward to continuing to work with The Art File and raise more funds for CLIC Sargent so we can continue to support young lives against cancer.”
CLIC Sargent fights tirelessly for children and young people with cancer, often when they feel they can’t. And if the worst happens, the charity will work with bereaved families to get them support, to help them cope with their emotional pain.
“The Art File have played a vital role in helping us deliver our services,” adds Amy.
