With over 125 years of history behind it, the Stationers Social Society, which was formed to encourage individuals in the paper industry to meet up at sports and social events, has become a registered charity - the Paper Industry Charitable Trust.
The charitable work of the SSS Benevolent Fund, which had previously played a role in providing assistance to members and their families in times of special need will be expanded through PICT to include support for educational ventures linked with the trade and schools.
PICT will be organising sports and social events throughout the UK to raise funds to support their charitable causes - the emphasis of these events will be to have fun whilst benefitting others.
Every day paper is in our lives and it is our hope that PICT will help educate the young to better understand our industry and assist those who have played their part in its success, but who now find they need some help themselves.
PICT needs your support and we hope that all involved in our industry will unite to make this new charity a huge success.
