This year's company-wide fundraising event is the Salford Dragon Boat Race. Our charity is the Anthony Nolan trust. The reason we've designated this worthy charity as our beneficiary is because we sadly lost our long-serving Director, Peter Dye, to blood cancer earlier this year. And the reason we've chosen this particular event is that, upon his retirement, Peter and his wife, Jane, spent their newly freed up time sailing from Ipswich to the Mediterranean, visiting many far-flung places on their yacht, Bluejay.

The Quill Easter bunnies have been out in force this month collecting chocolate eggs, colouring books and colouring pens for disadvantaged children in hospital, shelters and hospices up and down the country.

To quote the author Richard M Knittle: "Putting a smile on a child's face can change the world. Maybe not the whole world but at least their world." Happy Easter everyone!

She now extols all-things Quill and acts as "living proof that the grass isn't always greener". Read Ash's story.

19th January marked our 40th birthday. The past four decades have taken us on an incredible journey. To mark the special occasion, we hosted a party for our employees, as can be seen from these photographs. Our people have, after all, contributed to our success more than anything else. The party was a great moment to thank staff new and old for their contributions to making Quill what it is today.
