Local Print & Mail Company Back Hospital Appeal


Local print and mail company, CFH Docmail Ltd, are valued supporters of the RUH Forever Friends Appeal – having raised thousands of pounds for the Appeal’s Campaign to help build a pioneering new Cancer Centre for the Royal United Hospital in Bath.  In order to thank the company for their invaluable support, The Forever Friends Appeal are delighted to welcome CFH Docmail on board as a Corporate Partner.

Having sponsored Ted’s Team in the Bath Half Marathon in both 2012 and 2014, many staff members from CFH Docmail based in Radstock, also decided to dust off their running shoes and take on the 13.1 mile challenge.  Thanks to this passion and commitment, the company has raised a truly wonderful £14,000 for the Appeal over the past three years – through their Bath Half Marathon sponsorship, and supporting other fundraising activities, such as Ted’s Big Day Out each October,

Though it is not just through financial donations that CFH Docmail show their support for the charity.  Every member of Ted’s Bath Half Marathon team in 2014 received a Wild Cherry Tree in their post-race goody bag, which was kindly donated as part of the company’s Top Tree Initiative.   The Toptree programme, in association with the Woodland Trust, has been responsible for the introduction of more than 92,000 trees into Woodland Trust sites around the UK since 1997. Urban Green, a new Toptree initiative, was recently launched by Velopost (formerly Docmail Local Post) to increase the population of indigenous trees in the cities and towns of the UK.

CFH Docmail is a leading provider of print and mail and IT solutions with over 35 years experience. They provide businesses with an all in one print, personalisation and mail delivery service for less than the cost of a second class stamp.  Dave Broadway, Managing Director of CFH Docmail commented “Impressively, Ted’s Team has raised over £40,000 so far this year through the Bath Half – which is a great achievement. I am very proud of the efforts of our staff, and the contribution they made to such a worthy cause. We look forward to hearing about the development of the important Cancer Centre in Bath.

Having raised over £10,000, CFH Docmail will therefore be recognised by the charity as a ‘Corporate Partner’, and the Appeal were therefore delighted to have recently presented Managing Director, Dave Broadway, with a Forever Friends Appeal Corporate Partnership plaque to display in their Radstock office.  Corporate Officer for The Forever Friends Appeal, Jo Hones, comments:  “We are so thrilled to welcome CFH Docmail on board as our Corporate Partner.   As a Corporate Partner CFH will receive a naming opportunity within the new Cancer Centre, and this acknowledgement is our way of saying thank you for the dedicated support the company has given us over the years.”

The current focus of The Forever Friends Appeal Appeal is the RUH Cancer Care Campaign, raising £8.5 million towards the building of a pioneering new Cancer Centre for the Royal United Hospital in Bath.
