Supporting our community

We like to support community events in Devon where we can and this weekend we’ve sponsored two events. On Sunday we were delighted to see so many smiling faces and lots of laughter at the Annual Bideford Cardboard Boat Regatta. Anyone can take part and there were races for adults and children. It was clear to see that racers had put lots of time and effort into creating their cardboard crafts. But the thousands of people who lined the Quay to watch were waiting to see how many of the boats would sink! As you can see from our video there were plenty of boats that didn’t survive the race. These included a team called ‘The Floaters’ made up of students who had been with us at Atlas Packaging recently on work experience. The lads made a boat while they were with us, even designing it on computer. But it was a learning experience for them as they sank within 50 metres of the start line!

Charity golf day

On Friday we sponsored the Barnstaple Link Rotary annual golf day at Saunton golf club which is one of the best courses in the UK. The event raises money for the charity which then uses the cash to support local organisations in Barnstaple and the surrounding area. As sponsors of the event we also invite some of our customers to join us and play a round in teams of three. The opportunity to play at the best golf course in the UK never to have held the British Open is an attractive prospect and customers joined us from as far afield as Lincolnshire.

Supporting these community events is very important to us here at Atlas Packaging. We are one of the biggest employers in North Devon and as such we are happy to help not only with the staging of events but creating items from cardboard that may be of use. Although next year we may well build our own boat!
