Crisp Branding has joined the Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School (BVGS) Corporate Partnership Programme to help support the school which is facing the continued budget squeeze.
One of twenty-five businesses to join the initiative to date, Crisp Branding is the first of its kind to get involved, designing and supplying promotional merchandise to businesses of all sizes.
Chris Jacka, Managing Director of Crisp Branding commented: “We’re delighted to support BVGS in these difficult times. In fact, we’re delighted to be able to include them as one of our charities for the year ahead.
“We’re a small family-run business and as small businesses will understand, it takes a lot of hard work to get to a stage where you are able to support worthy causes to this extent.
“The time has come for us to give back to the community, support this outstanding school and hopefully help other businesses to realise the potential of promotional merchandising for business.
“The decision to partner with BVGS was made after meeting Brian Davies, who is running the programme at the school, at a Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce expo in 2016.
“We were impressed to see Brian do his due diligence by vetting our business before committing to work with us to ensure our values align with the school’s.
“To me this speaks volumes about the programme – we’re all businesses that Brian and his team at the school are very happy to work with and recommend to their network of partners and alumni.
“It’s a privilege to be involved, and we’re seeking to build a long-term relationship with the school and other businesses within the network.
“We’re already working with some of the other businesses that we’ve met at the partnership programme networking events; it’s clear this collaboration is beneficial for everyone involved.
“It’s also been great to share some of our stories on how we’ve provided some quirky and interesting products to help our clients engage better with their customers and prospects.”
Brian Davies, Development Director and Deputy Sports Director at the school commented: “The team at Crisp Branding are friendly and creative with the ability to truly think outside the box. It’s great to welcome them as a Corporate Partner.
“We’re looking forward to building a strong relationship with Chris and his team at Crisp Branding, along with the other corporate partners, whilst we continue to strengthen our corporate network.”
