Charity Begins at Mode

Working closely with our charities is something Mode prides itself on. Our responsibility and commitment to this has always been integral to our ethos. Whilst we work closely with our clients, we do not like to forget our charities and schools that we support, local to our Hertfordshire office. This December, we contributed to our local primary school at Thundridge, enabling them to purchase 10 new laptops. We also supported our local OAP’s lunch which is an incredible Christmas event which provides so much fun and company for our local older community, and also, for the 3rd year running, we supported Reed in purchasing Christmas presents for children that had to unfortunately spend the holidays at the Lister hospital at read more...

Mode Print Solutions is once again adding its support to grass roots community projects right on their doorstep. Hares Youth FC, one of the most ambitious youth football clubs in Hertfordshire, has become the latest local organisation to benefit from Mode’s generosity.  Originally formed in 2000, Hares Youth FC has seen its fair share of trials and tribulations, but is now back on its feet, with a total of 9 teams competing in local leagues in the 2017/18 season, as well as its own academy.  As if that wasn’t enough, Hares also commit to a series of very successful school holiday clubs for the benefit of children in Hertfordshire. Mode has kindly contributed the kits for one of the Under read more...

Unused Toners Helps Cancer Research

Unused toners and donations to worthy charities don’t usually work hand in hand. However, Mode is always looking for ways in which we can support our local community, often donating to our local primary school, our local senior citizens’ club, and our local cricket club on a regular basis. We also ensure our 3 nominated charities (Together for Short Lives, Marie Curie, and Blue Cross) are fully supported through the work we do with our clients. So when Hayley, our Service Coordinator, was contacted by a company whom we have worked with before, Return-a-Toner, regarding our surplus supplies, we wanted to find out more. Mode already has a strict recycling policy and we work closely with our carefully chosen manufacturers read more...

Mode Supports Reed Gift Appeal for the Second Year

Christmas is a special time, particularly for Children. Unfortunately this Christmas, many children will not have the excitement of rushing downstairs to open Christmas presents as they will be in hospital having had an accident or suffering from illness. Following Mode’s donation last year, and the exceptional success of the Reed Welwyn Garden City branch, where 500 gifts were donated, Mode once again wanted to give something back and try to make this difficult time slightly more enjoyable for a few. Again this year we wanted  to donate gifts such as books, games, DVDs, art & crafts material, selection boxes and similar, to cater for children of all ages. Reed came and collected these from our Client Support team on read more...

Mode Print Solutions are a CarbonZero Company for the 2nd Year

We believe that every business needs to have a commitment to the environment and the wider world that we live in. That’s why we joined the CO2balance Kenyan Energy Stove Project and devoted resources to become a CarbonZero company from September last year. The CO2balance Kenyan Energy Stove Project supplies energy saving stoves to villagers throughout Kenya. Traditional Kenyan cooking is done on a three stone fire, which is incredibly inefficient and fills villagers’ homes with smoke which can cause or exacerbate a range of health issues. The brick stoves provided by the CO2balance Kenyan Energy Stove Project reduce firewood usage by 50% and lower carbon emissions through cooking. Other benefits are that it makes cooking more cost-effective, reduces deforestation, read more...

Mode supports ABF The Soldiers’ Charity

ABF The Soldiers’ charity exists to support serving soldiers, veterans and their families. They take pride in being responsive, making a difference in people’s lives, providing grants, funding and practical support. Mode recently heard about Russell from Hertfordshire, an RSM in the Army who is taking part on 11-12 June 2016 in the Alliance Trust Cateran Yomp to raise much needed funds for ABF. Mode felt compleled to donate to this cause as Russell has served his country for over 20 years, with 3 tours of Afghanistan as well as raising funds! Russell is doing the epic ‘Yomp’ trek across rural Perthshire and he knows better than most how tough it will be, but also knows the vital funds raised read more...

Mode generously supports Reed

Many of us would like to buy and deliver a gift for someone in need but during such a busy time of year, it can often be difficult to find the time. In conjunction with Reed, Mode has donated toys and gifts to be delivered to the children’s ward at the Lister hospital in Stevenage next week. All the Mode team were involved from Kate our receptionist ensuring the gifts were purchased, to our sales and operations teams helping to wrap the presents!

Mode Supports Local Football Team Chars Youth FC

Mode likes to support our local community in any way so when we saw an opportunity to help a local youth team, we were happy to help. Chars Youth FC were established in 2012 after their current manager Joe Westmacot identified a lack of youth football in the Cheshunt area. Over the last few years the club has grown and now has an under 7’s, under 9’s and under 10’s teams. They are affiliated to the Cheshunt Friendly League and are always looking for support from the local community. We were delighted to be able to supply them with 4 new goals for their home ground. We look forward to watching the club and teams develop over the coming seasons. read more...
