• Uni-ball launches limited edition pen in partnership with GOSH Charity

        • Uni-ball has announced the second year of its charity partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity), following a successful first year where the company exceeded its original fundraising target by over 50 per cent. 

          To celebrate this second phase of fundraising, uni-ball is launching a new five-piece uni-ball AIR pack which contains a limited-edition GOSH branded pen. Twenty pence will be donated to GOSH Charity from each pack which will be available through a high street exclusive with Ryman.

          Uni-ball will also continue to donate 20p from every sale of its twin and triple pack eye pens in black, with GOSH branded outer packaging, sold through stationery retailers, WH Smith and Ryman, as well as high street supermarkets including Asda and Tesco. Together with other smaller fundraising initiatives, uni-ball is looking to raise over £50,000 for GOSH during its second year of fundraising.

          Paul Smith, Director of Sales and Marketing at at uni-ball said, “in year one we exceeded our fundraising targets by 50 per cent so this year we’re looking forward to raising even more vital funds for GOSH Charity with the help of our limited edition branded AIR pen. We are delighted to raise money for the charity to support Great Ormond Street Hospital and seriously ill children from across the UK.”

          Money raised by uni-ball will help to fund the hospitals’ ground-breaking research, advanced equipment and child and family support services. In addition to this, it will support the play team, who specialise in helping more than 130 children every day understand treatments and procedures, from transplants to chemotherapy through play.

          Sophie Powell-White, Head of Account Management at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity added, “our partnership with uni-ball has exceeded our expectations in the first year and we are thrilled to be able to work with them again this year. The money raised will help us in supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital and seriously ill children from across the UK.”
