A B Graphic International sponsors educational charity as it moves into Bridlington
Bridlington firm A B Graphic International (ABG) recently sponsored local educational charity ‘Run With It’ as part of its Corporate social responsibility programme.
The charity primarily works with local primary, secondary and special schools delivering the key skills of literacy and maths in a functional and exciting way by using football stadia as the classroom.
In practice, skills learnt in the classroom are applied in real life settings, such as maths in the club shops and measuring the pitch, or literacy in the media areas in the stadium, pretending to be match day reporters, commentators or even the club managers.
It recently expanded into Bridlington with the support of Bridlington Town FC and the local business community.
ABG’s global sales director Matt Burton said: “Clearly we are delighted to be involved with their Bridlington project and very much look forward to them becoming established on our home turf.
“This is all about helping to educate, shape and support the next generation, which for us, is a priority in the community that we serve.”
ABG is based on Carnaby Industrial Estate and manufactures innovative print finishing equipment.
