An award winning print solutions company based in Newcastle upon Tyne has pledged its support to one of the regions most loved charities by becoming their dedicated print partner for an iconic “Geordie” show.

statexcolourprint based at Newcastle’s Airport Industrial Estate will be producing all of the printed collateral for The Sunday for Sammy Trust and with the show only four weeks away, the high quality glossy programmes and other essential printed materials will help provide the charity with some valuable recognition and help reach a wider audience.

Sunday for Sammy, unofficially known as the Geordie Command Performance, will delight packed audiences at two shows at the Newcastle Metro Radio Arena on 18th February. The show is a celebration of North Eastern culture and many of the region’s most popular and successful performers have taken part in the extravaganza of comedy and music, staged to raise funds to support the next generation of North Eastern performers with training, expenses and equipment.

Tim Healy, Denise Welch, Mark Knopfler, Kevin Whately, Charlie Hardwick, Jimmy Nail, Jill Halfpenny, Timothy Spall, AC/DC’s Brian Johnson, Christopher Fairbank, Stephen Tomkinson, John Miles, Angie Lonsdale, Lindisfarne, Joe McElderry, Brendan Healy, Donna Aire, Ant and Dec, Chelsea Halfpenny, Billy Mitchell, Brendan Foster, Pam Royle, Bob Moncur, Julia Tobin and many, many more have given up their time to take part in the show in previous years. The cast list is never revealed beforehand as every show is packed with surprises.

Richard Barksby, Marketing & Sales Development Manager of Statex Colour Print, said:
“ We are delighted to help and and get involved with Sunday for Sammy by producing all of the printed materials for such a well loved show. They do a fantastic job helping people to get a start in the entertainment world and it’s great to be able to be part of that team and essentially helping with someone’s future aspirations.”
Like Sunday for Sammy, Statex Colour Print is one of the region’s success stories. Starting from humble beginnings more than twenty years ago, the company has grown thanks to its outstanding customer service and reputation for providing the best quality print products.

Sunday for Sammy producer Ray Laidlaw was delighted to welcome Statex Colour Print onboard.

“Our role is to help young entertainers progress their chosen career in the world of music, drama, dance and entertainment. When someone buys our DVD or attends the Sunday for Sammy show, their money goes towards helping the up and coming stars of tomorrow. If we minimise our costs such as printing then even more money gets ploughed back into someone’s future. We are delighted with the help we are receiving from Statex and look forward to a long and happy partnership.”
