City Link has got National Family Week off to a flying start with the delivery of over 3000 fundraising packs across the UK.
The UK’s premium express delivery company has distributed free of charge all the official promotional material to schools, charities and other ‘not for profit’ organisations holding a range of fun family engaging events during the course of the week.
The packs contain posters, balloons, bookmarks, stickers, T-shirts and in some cases banners to publicise the events.
It is the second year running the company has supported the week which aims to bring families closer together and is backed by all the major political parties including Prime Minister David Cameron.
And in recognition of City Link’s continued support, the company has been upgraded to the status of Supporting Sponsor and features alongside an impressive line up of other organisations supporting the initiative.
National Family Week is the UK’s largest coalition on family issues in the UK and aims with the help of partners and supporters to promote the importance of family life, spending quality time together as well as the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle and it is expected that this year will be a bumper year with literally thousands of events taking place across the country in which families can participate.
Stuart Godman, Managing Director of City Link commented: "National Family Week is an initiative which has really struck a chord with our Colleagues at City Link and we were delighted to once again lend our support to a very worthwhile cause.
"Families are so busy these days that the events and activities being held during National Family Week will give them a great opportunity to spend quality time together, have fun and enjoy the Bank Holiday and half term break.
"Our Customers and the local community are at the heart of everything we do at City Link and we are only too pleased to offer our services free of charge."
