RAL Display has been working with local and national charities for over 35 years and in December 2016 we launched a competition which was open to all UK based charities, non-profit organisations and publically funded educational bodies. Up for grabs was £500 worth of vouchers to spend on a range of display systems including pop-up stands, sign holders, display stands and display boards. To enter we wanted to know the organisation’s New Year’s resolution and what you would buy with their £500 winnings.
Two finalists went head to head and after a public vote the prize was awarded to Soft Touch Arts. The Leicestershire based charity was founded in 1986 with a fundamental aim to use the arts to engage with young individuals that are struggling to reach their full potential. This is often due to circumstances out of their control including an unconventional home life or difficulties with settling into mainstream education. The creative side of the projects that Soft Touch Arts develop enables young people to build their confidence and self worth through the involvement of group activities.
The charity has won numerous awards including the Niche Business Awards Shaping Tomorrow’s Leaders and the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Leicestershire Business Awards Social Impact.
Throughout the year they hold a number of events including art exhibitions, live music, comedy shows, conferences and specialised workshops. We hope the donated display stands and sign holders help with these events.
