Promotional Merch for a Good Cause
We’ve recently been working with Age UK Norwich, a local charity to provide branded merchandise for all their promotional needs. Whether it be for employee goodie bags or to celebrate the launch of a new marketing strategy and logo. We thought we’d take this opportunity to thank them for their support, and spread some awareness about the importance of charities like Age UK Norwich for our local community and beyond.
Who are Age UK Norwich?
They’re a Norwich based charity that work towards bettering the lives of the elderly population of Norfolk. Their ultimate goal is for Norwich, and the surrounding areas to become “age friendly”. This is especially important since it’s predicted that by 2041, the population aged 85+ is expected to double in size. With age, comes more health complications, as well as low-mobility and loneliness. These are all problems that Age UK Norwich are trying to avoid.
How Age UK Work to Prevent this Problem?
Age UK make a difference by improving the quality of later life through providing the elderly with added support, helping them to live healthier and more connected lives. This reduces risk of illness and chronic loneliness. They work to tackle the inequalities that can reduce life expectancy, this includes promoting WHO’s Age Friendly Principles in the design of the city, services and culture.
How Their Work has Made an Impact
Age UK Norwich have had a massive impact on their service users, whether it be through offering information and advice from people who genuinely understand, or through dedicated health coaching from qualified professionals. In fact, 6/10 people who have had health coaching have gone on to join a club to help them stay active, with 92% of people saying they feel more confident after speaking with their health coaches. Age UK Norwich even offer a befriending service, which has seen 83% of users say that the service has improved their well-being.
What Totally Branded Did For Age UK Norwich
We’ve been working with Age UK Norwich for a while now, and they have made orders with us a few times. To celebrate the launch of a new marketing campaign, we produced merchandise so they could put together some goodie bags for their employees, including printed tote bags, branded notebooks and pens, promotional flasks, and printed umbrellas. We also produced some branded mugs for their office, and currently in progress is some uniform style merch, including branded fleeces, polos and running vests. We spoke with Holly from Age UK Norwich about our collaboration, and the account manager in charge of their account, here is what she had to say:
“Totally Branded is a joy to work with, and we are proud to support a local Norfolk-based company. They have a wide range of products with everything we need for our merchandise. Sophie is always helpful and quick to respond, and the designs and products have been impressive. It always puts a smile on people’s faces when they receive our merchandise. This makes a lasting impact, leaving them with a reminder of our charity and its mission to improve the quality of later life in Norwich.” - Holly Harrington, Age UK Norwich.
