Proud Sponsors of the Justice for Cody Event

00News November, 12

We are privileged to be able to sponsor this rally at Stormont for Cody’s family to highlight animal welfare concerns in Northern Ireland.

The horrific event which took place in late August of this year, were someone poured petrol over this defenceless dog and set him alight. Cody was then put to sleep as the injuries were too severe. An altogether traumatic time for the Agnew family who owned Cody.

The Justice for Cody event is open to everyone and will be held in the grounds of Stormont on Saturday, November 24th from 1pm to 3pm. Everyone is invited to bring their dog as a show of support for Cody.

Peninsula Print and Design supporting Steps to Work

00News November, 12

Peninsula Print and Design have been supporting SERC since Steps to Work began in 2008 by offering quality placements in the local area of Newtownards. Colin Cooke, Production Manager, highlighted a number of existing employees who started out on the Steps to Work Programme and later joined their workforce. One such success is Andrew Gamble, Assistant Printer.

Andrew had never considered a career in printing until he took up a placement in June 2012, and said it’s “the most enjoyable job” he’s ever had. In the same way as the Back to Work placement provided an opportunity for him to see what it’s like to work as part of a team, it also provided Colin with the chance to see if there was a need to employ additional staff without the recruitment expenditure. Colin believes that it is important to be happy at your work, and that the Steps to Work Programme is a two-way process which can help establish this. Colin went on to say that “it can be daunting for a person to come to work every day for eight weeks with little monetary incentive, but it’s an excellent opportunity to prove yourself, up-skill, and gives you the experience you need to apply for similar roles”.

Since becoming a staff member with Peninsula Print & Design, Andrew has gained his Forklift Licence which he says is a big bonus and very motivating, as he feels valued.

Included in the photograph is another employee, George Cash, who also started off as a participant on placement with the company, and has been an employee now for a year and a half. George said the placement gave him a clear idea of what the work would be like if he was to keep at it, and since becoming employed, likes the fact that he’s constantly being trained to operate new machinery, such as the folding machine. George continues to build up his experience within the company.

As a result of the successes Peninsula Print & Design have experienced, Colin continues to provide placements for participants who are keen and reliable.
