Date set for annual meeting of The Printing Charity

May 3, 2012 by  

The charity that is responsible for supporting and nurturing members of the printing community is due to hold the 185th instalment of its annual general meeting later this month.

One of the key charitable organisations in UK printing, The Printing Charity recently announced that its 185th annual general meeting would be held in Bletchley near Milton Keynes on 15th May 2012. The meeting itself will take place at Beaverbrook House, a sheltered housing development owned by the charity and inhabited by retired members of the printing community.

The Printing Charity is an organisation that was formerly known as the Printers’ Charitable Corporation. The organisation set down its roots in the 19th century and ever since has been helping those and the families of those who work with or are associated with the industries that surround printing and printing companies.

Tunbridge Wells, which is just east of where The Printing Charity is headquartered at Gatwick, is home to print shops and printing companies who are likely to have worked with The Printing Charity in the past, or who are at least aware of the work the charity does. By helping to fund courses, study and expenses for those wishing to make or continue a career in print, The Printing Charity has helped to foster a sense of community and support within the print industries.
