We Do. Print, part of the Commercial Foundations social enterprise, is extending its scope of operations following an equipment donation from Coventry Building Society that equates to £170,000 in social value.

An upgrade at the Coventry’s Fulfilment Centre rendered a Watkiss booklet maker redundant. It has now been installed at We Do. Print’s Gloucestershire premises where it will be put to immediate use. Every £1 spent with or donated to the organisation, generates the equivalent of £4.86 in social value.

Commercial Foundations’ Director Natalie Wadley said the new equipment will deliver multiple benefits. “The Watkiss booklet maker takes We Do. Print’s offering to a new level, enabling the business to offer a wider range of finishing services to clients,” she explained. “It also unlocks an additional potential skillset for the young people we’re working with. We Do. Print has ambitious growth plans this year, so the donation couldn’t have come at a better time.”

Coventry Building Society has a longstanding relationship with Commercial Group and has been an avid supporter of Commercial Foundations since it was established.
