Roland DG, a leading global manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters, has announced its recent donation of £6,000 to Somerset & Wiltshire based charity, YMCA Brunel Group. The donation is aimed at helping the independent charity provide youth work, supported housing, health and wellbeing, and family work across the South West of England.

The contribution stems from a heartfelt initiative led by the Roland DG UK team, based in Clevedon. In January, they organised a staff charity auction, showcasing a variety of items including electronics, furniture, and additional annual leave days. The auction raised £3,000, a sum matched by the company, culminating in the substantial £6,000 donation to YMCA Brunel Group. 

Stephen Davis, EMEA Marketing Director and UK President at Roland DG discusses the company’s dedication to making a positive difference in the community, remarking: “Being a part of this donation to YMCA Brunel Group has been nothing short of magical, with our whole team coming together to partake in the initiative. We’re honoured to continue to support this charity in creating unforgettable moments for young people in our community. Looking forward, our team is excited to continue working with YMCA Brunel Group to make a positive difference in our locality. 

Roland DG recognises the importance of collaboration and community engagement in driving positive change. This ethos is exemplified through Roland DG’s continued partnership with YMCA Brunel Group, which has in the past facilitated the transformation of YMCA Bath’s exercise studio into a magical space for a Narnia-themed yoga retreat, using Roland DG printing technology.

Trish Fairbeard, Director of Strategy and Communications at YMCA Brunel Group, expressed gratitude for Roland DG’s ongoing support, stating, “We were overjoyed to receive the donation from Stephen and his amazing team at Roland DG UK. Our mission at YMCA Brunel Group is to build strong communities where everybody can belong, contribute, and thrive – and that wouldn’t be possible without generous donations such as this one. The continued support is greatly appreciated, and will make a world of difference for all those in our supported housing schemes and community-focused initiatives.”

Funds generated from Yoga classes in the space played a crucial role in supporting YMCA Brunel Group’s housing projects last Christmas. From providing essential winter clothing to adorning spaces with festive decorations and hosting memorable Christmas dinners, the funds created a meaningful and memorable holiday season for those in need across the South West.

Looking forward, Roland DG UK aims to deepen its partnership with YMCA Brunel Group and explore new avenues for collaborative action. Through ongoing efforts, Roland DG seeks to create a brighter future for youth in the Bristol area and beyond, fostering a sense of belonging and opportunity for all.
