On a cold morning on Friday 25th October, our Feltham Office started the day with a warm cup of coffee and a tasty slice of cake in attempt to raise money for MacMillan and Cancer Charity. As well as runninig a £1 raffle and Euromillion tickets and £5 raffle tickets for a Kindle Fire, our staff managed to raise £762.94, one of the best totals we have had in the last five years. Special thanks to all staff who donated Prizes such as Comte and Noiron Champagne and Lanson Champage, and to our suppliers Great Branding, Print A Pix (Syncoms) and Panoramic Promotions who kindly contributed to fight against cancer. Our highlight of the event was MD Peter Sunderland who made very generous contributions to the cause.

Ever wondered how dinosaurs get around? Charles Kendall Packing have been working with the Natural History Museum for over ten years and during this time have helped them pack and move various exhibition displays and artefacts. If you’ve ever wondered how we do it, then check out our most recent expert packing job on our YouTube channel, where four dinosaurs were being prepared for a voyage across the Atlantic to feature at US exhibitions.

Over Easter weekend, while most of the UK-based staff were enjoying a break, our IT team were hard at work performing the first full Disaster Recovery test. The ability for our businesses to continue if there were a disaster has been paramount since the outbreak of a fire at our London offices in 2007. The current setup aims to reduce the recovery timeframe so that business can continue even if the main datacentre were to suffer a total outage. During this simulation all data was protected, including data entered while running remotely.

The 2013 Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Exhibition this week in Farnborough coincides with Valentines Day, so the sales team thought it would be a nice idea to create a Charles Kendall chocolate heart lollipop to share with propsective customers and fellow exhibitors. Emma Roberts, Ian Shave and Jo Harvey from Freight as well as Mike Mabbott from Packing will be available on our stand for the duration of the show. More pictures from the event to follow.
