Pentel Receive Fundraising Hero Award

The BOSS Federation have provided top plaudits to leading stationery manufacturer Pentel by naming them recently as Fundraising Hero Award winners.

Office Supplies Blog has learned via Swindon Advertiser that South Marston based stationery manufacturer Pentel have received the Fundraising Hero Award from office supplies trade association, the BOSS Federation.

BOSS have awarded Pentel with the honor due in part to their work with key cancer charity organizations Prostate Cancer UK and Breast Cancer Now, which has enabled them to raise more than approx. £2.1 million with the sale of more than 9 million of Pentel’s special edition EnerGel pens over the years.

Recognising Tremendous Charity Work in the Office Supplies Industry

Presented as part of BOSS Federation’s annual Industry Recognition Awards, Pentel have been honoured with the Fundraising Hero Award in respect to their continuous promotional work and fundraising activities with both Breast Cancer Now and Prostate Cancer UK.

In addition, Pentel’s commitment to donate 25p to both charities on any sales of their pink or blue and white barreled special edition EnerGel pens has also been highly praised and commended as part of their overall efforts over the past 14 years.

Commenting on the collective efforts of the Pentel team that helped gain them the Fundraising Hero accolade, Pentel Marketing Manager, Wendy Vickery expressed:

“The fact that our charity partnerships continue to endure 14 years since the first agreement was signed – and especially in such a challenging year as this – is testament to the passion, determination and persistence of the entire Pentel team.

Without their tremendous efforts we wouldn’t be talking about the remarkable success our partnerships continue to deliver, making a difference to the lives of so many people in the UK and Ireland.”

Breast Cancer Now and Prostate Cancer Proud of Pentel Support

Speaking more on the impact that Pentel’s charity work has had on their organization, Breast Cancer Now Chief Executive, Baroness Delyth Morgan commented:

“We are incredibly proud of our long-standing partnership with Pentel and are so grateful for the dedicated and unwavering support of Pentel’s staff and customers over the last 14 years.

The partnership has raised an incredible £1.48 million to date, which has had a huge impact on our vital work for people affected by breast cancer, and will help us to continue to make world-class breast cancer research and life-changing care happen.”

Director of Fundraising for Prostate Cancer UK, Tracey Pritchard, also spoke of how vital support from long-term partners like Pentel is for life-changing research projects.

“It is with the support of long-term partners such as Pentel and their customers that Prostate Cancer UK can turn its ambitions into a reality.
Pentel has raised over £631,000 since 2009 for Prostate Cancer UK.

This is a phenomenal amount and testament to their hard work and dedication.”
