Hampshire flag company supports Samaritans’ summer of festivals

Tear-drop banner The double sided tear drop banner
Samaritans has called upon one of the UK's leading suppliers of flags and banners to raise its profile at a series of events and festivals this summer.

Hampshire Flag Company supplied a double-sided tear-drop banner for the Coventry and District branch of Samaritans, depicting the charity's branding on one side and a more colourful, youthful design on the other.

The digitally dye printed 3m banner made its debut at Leamington Peace Festival, has been used at the Coventry Caribbean Festival and will also be taken to other forthcoming events and festivals throughout Coventry and Warwickshire including the branch Conference, Godiva Festival and Warwick Folk Festival.

Nicky Hewitt, Publicity, Deputy Director of Outreach and Fundraising at Coventry and District Samaritans said, "We are thrilled with the banner. It has exceeded expectations and had a dramatic impact on visitors to the festivals."

"The banner is eye-catching, modern and slick and challenges the public's perceptions of Samaritans. Displaying the banner has encouraged visitor interaction and it has been a real morale boost for our volunteers. Hampshire Flag were brilliant at supporting us and worked to a very tight deadline," said Nicky.

This is the first time that Hampshire Flag has been brought on board by Samaritans and Graham Wilkinson, the firm's Managing Director, believes that using contemporary and convenient promotional tools such as the tear-drop banner will help ensure charities remain in the public eye.
