Supporting Leicester Children’s Charity

TopWristbandsUK has presented another brick in the wall, to Soft Touch Arts, a local Leicester Charity working with young people to develop creative, social and employability skills using arts, media and music activities.

The ‘brick wall’ is slowly building from bricks representing a donation from Leicester based businesses and the TopWristbands brick has been specially designed by our Graphic Design team, to stand out in the brick wall.

MD of TopWristbands Company Paul Rowlett said: “It seemed like the perfect fit for us as a company. Young people wear wristbands for Festivals, their favourite causes and their favourite artists, so supporting a local Charity that helps young people to have more fulfilling lives, was right down our Street.”

Wristbands with logo’s and promotional branding are fast becoming the easiest way for any Charity to raise funds for its projects, and TopWristbands should know, they provide thousands of them to Charities of all sizes throughout the UK, from National names to small local support groups or advice centres, who use wristbands to promote their awareness with their target audience.

Sometimes they are given out in Schools, or by youth organisations with helpline numbers printed on for young people’s issues, or they can be used to raise money by selling them for a small donation, and thirdly they are also used more and more as ‘entrance tickets’ to any kind of fundraising event put on by Charities.

Soft Touch Arts said: “Our work tackles local and national problems like gang culture, anti-social behaviour and unhealthy lifestyles, using creativity to give young people more positive choices in their lives. We work with MPs, police, fire service, schools, youth, health and social services, and local authorities. This gives our work a greater impact: we share ideas and resources which gives value for money for taxpayers and fewer social problems.”

In fact, TopWristbands are also supporting this Charity and a few others in Leicester, with some branded wristbands for their next events in the hope that more and more people will get to find out about what they do, bringing them lots more supporters.

Charities rely on fundraising most of the time to support their work, as statutory funding grants have been reduced or in many cases, cut altogether, and so small local organisations that provide a valuable service to people who need it, have to find new methods of raising money and the quickest way to do that is to reach many more people with a cheap keepsake like a wristband, that keeps your name in view.
