Local businessman selected to judge prestigious national awards

A local businessman has been selected to be a judge in a prestigious industry award, culminating in an awards ceremony at the House of Lords.

 

Andrew Galloway, Managing Director of leading Manchester printers Galloways, was invited to join the judging panel for the Print Futures Awards, The Printing Charity’s flagship awards programme. The awards assist young people to develop their workplace skills in the UK printing, paper, packaging, publishing, and graphic arts sector by providing financial grants of up to £1,500 to help fund training, equipment or post education internships.

 

Applicants shortlisted from this year’s 248 applications were given the opportunity to present to a panel of high-profile industry judges how an award would help them develop their skills, with a record 93 being granted an award. 2019 marks ten years of the Print Futures Awards, building on a previous scheme set up in 2003 and is now the largest single awards scheme for people aged 18 to 30 years in the sector.

 

Andrew Galloway said:

About The Printing Charity: The Printing Charity is proud of its heritage and since 1827 has been supporting people of all ages working in printing, paper, packaging, and publishing. Its charitable aims include promoting independence, protecting dignity and furthering education. It meets the needs of those it helps through financial assistance, signposting to specialist services, two sheltered home schemes for people who have retired from the sector, and initiatives supporting sector-specific training.

 

“It was an absolute honour to be asked to take part in this prestigious awards process. The Printing Charity is a wonderful organisation helping those in need as well as the new generation joining the sector. We are part of a booming industry and it was wonderful to help the leaders of the future find new routes, undertake extra training, and develop their careers.”

 

For the first time, the judging process went to Leeds in addition to London, where Andrew Galloway met the applicants, demonstrating the number of applications from the north.  The winners celebrated their success at a reception at the House of Lords, where they were presented with their awards.

 

Poynton-based Galloways is a long-established business providing a high-end printing service across the North West and beyond. Celebrating it’s 150th anniversary next year, it offers an exceptional level of service and expertise to customers, operating as an extension of their marketing department to give the best return on the client’s marketing spend.

 

 

Neil Lovell, The Printing Charity’s Chief Executive, said:
