Charlestown Snow Scenes help raise money for Marie Curie

St Austell Printing Company are pleased to be able to support a fundraising effort by a mother and daughter from Charlestown for Marie Curie.

When the beautiful snow fell across Cornwall earlier this year, it was bad news for Marie Curie and their Great Daffodil collections.

Owing to this unprecedented snowfall, many collections had to be cancelled which has resulted in a loss of approximately £13,000 of fundraising for Cornwall.

When Mother and Daughter Karen and Bromley Hurn heard about the charity’s plight, they decided to use some of the images they captured during the snow of Charlestown to help raise funds.

“I was hoping to make these photographs into cards to sell so Marie Curie could try and replace some of their lost funds. I am privileged that monies raised will be matched by Barclays.” said Karen.

Karen approached St Austell Printing Company, where we were happy to assist with printing the 4,000 cards at our factory at Carclaze.

Matt Bunt, SAPC’s Marketing and Communications Manager said: “The photos capture one of Cornwall’s most iconic locations just down the road from us and they’ve done an excellent job. We were happy to be able to assist Karen and Bromley and hope it raises as much money as possible for a good cause.”

The card packs have been sponsored by St Austell Brewery, DJR Timber Frame, St Austell Printing Company and Barclays.

The packs of cards are available to buy in The Pier House, Anna’s Workshop & Jangles in Charlestown & Yummy Interiors.
