At First Choice Labels, we feel blessed to work in a wonderful place the country now known as the Mighty Redcar.

The BBC2 documentary rightly focuses on Redcar and the way it’s fighting back from the loss of the steelworks, but we also live and work in a wider region that deserves to be known as the Mighty Teesside.

Perhaps the greatest champion of the Mighty Teesside is a remarkable charity called Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundation, a force for good that First Choice Labels has been proud to support alongside many other proud local businesses for several years.

Now we’re backing the Foundation further as Headline Sponsors of the charity’s Annual Fundraising Ball, to be held in Wynyard Hall’s Grand Marquee on October 12th.

Our MD Nigel Willis, himself a Redcar lad, said: “Our support for this very special charity – one that keeps every penny it raises right here on Teesside – is our way of sharing a little of our ongoing success with the people who need it most, right here on our doorstep.

“We love the place we live and work – and the Foundation embodies all that is good, special and unique about Teesside.”

“It is humbling to think that by manufacturing labels we can change the lives of local people in a small but tangible way, whether that’s the homeless, those suffering poverty or striving to make something better of their lives.”

So let’s shout out for the Mighty Redcar – and let’s yell from the rooftops about the Mighty Teesside Philanthropic Foundation.
