That's the way to do it!!!

In the month of April Prestige Leisure and Gildan ran a competition “show the candidates how it should be done” which was based on the first episode of this year’s BBC’s apprentice show.

The competition was to create a unique design by print or embroider a Gildan GD08 Premium Cotton t-shirt and send the image to Prestige Leisure to post on their Facebook page.The winner would be the design with the most “likes”.The prize was a magnificent 1008 GD08 t-shirts.

The winner was a company called Evister Embroidery & print digitising who specialise in embroidery digitising, vectors, pre cut vinyl, doming and heat transfers.Craig, who owns Evister, entered the competition as he saw it as a way to raise money for JDRF (juvenile Diabetes research fund) a type 1 diabetes charity.Craig has now set up a small brand name called “dammit diabetes” and all money from the sales of the t-shirts goes straight to JDRF.

To present Craig with the 1008 GD08 t-shirts was Tony Ayres from Prestige Leisure and Jeff Bartley from Gildan went to meet the lucky winner.

JDRF have asked Evister to appear at a charity event at Drayton Manor on 30th September to sell the t-shirts.Prestige Leisure and Gildan wish Craig every success in raising money for JDRF in the hope that one day a cure will be found!

Prestige Leisure Wins Shooting Star of the Year Award

Prestige Leisure UK Ltd picked up the Shooting Star of the Year award for improving its recycling rate by 25% in 2011.

Two years ago the company resolved to cut down on the amount of waste it sent to landfill and made waste management one of its main objectives. More recycling bins were placed in the company’s offices, warehouse and staff canteens and staff were encouraged to sort waste such as paper and aluminium cans into the correct bins.

Prestige Leisure’s logistics manager Gary Craig, said: “We added to the amount of recycling bins we had throughout the site, and all staff were on board with the processes and understood the importance of recycling, making this a great success in a short period of time.”
