First Choice Labels had the honour of welcoming Seveci Navelinikoro (Nav to his friends) to our factory in Redcar.
Nav is an ex 1st Battalion Mercian regiment officer who was blown up by a road side IED in Afghanistan in 2012 whilst patrolling as part of Operation Herrick 17.
Over the past five years Nav has managed to rebuild some semblance of his life and flies out to Toronto to represent Team GB in the Invictus Games 2017.
This will be his third Invictus games and he hopes to add to his already impressive tally of Gold and Silver medals won in London 2015 and Orlando 2016. He will represent Team GB in Wheelchair Rugby, Sitting Volleyball, Shotput and Discus in Toronto.
Nav called in to Thank the staff at First Choice Labels for his luggage labels, manufactured right here in Redcar. In fact First Choice Labels supplied the luggage labels and tags for all the competitors competing at the Invictus Games 2017 having been contacted by Help for Heroes in August.
We manufactured the luggage and specialist equipment tags for all the competitors travelling to Toronto, Canada from 18 different countries including Australia, New Zeland, France, Germany, USA, Iraq, Jordan and Ukraine and the entire order was supplied completely Free of charge. This was our donation and gesture of support to the fabulous organisation that is Help for Heroes.
First Choice Labels are proud to support the organisations of compassion and tolerance.
