H&H Reeds Printers | Miles for Macmillan

As well as supporting our 2018 nominated charities H&H Reeds Printers are also holding a 140th anniversary event.

This year H&H Reeds Printers turn 140 years old and to celebrate staff took part in a 140 mile relay around Cumbria.

The event took place over 7 days in July.  In total, 22 members of staff – 50% of the entire workforce took part in the challenging route around Cumbria, covering mountains and terrains at all levels.

Starting at the Penrith site on Southend Road, visiting the old shop on King Street then continuing up to H&H Group, our parent company, at Borderway in Carlisle.  Next up North Lakes through Keswick and Ambleside before stopping off at the Milnthorpe site.  The final few legs saw a journey through Kendal and Ullswater on the way back to Penrith, visiting some client locations along the way.

All proceeds raised will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.  A charity who are there right from the moment someone is diagnosed, through treatment and beyond. With cancer affecting 1 in 2 of us in our lifetime, it is a cause close to so many people’s hearts – including some of our own. Macmillian offered tremendous care to one of the company’s longest serving members of staff, Malcolm Warwick, who sadly passed in 2006 after working at Reeds for 50 years.
