Newspaper cutting of the presentation of the cheque for charity. Les Robotham who was Composing Room Overseer and Chairman of the Staples Printers Social Club, is presenting a cheque for two hundred pounds, (a big sum then) to the Mayor. The proceeds of when Staples played the Entertainers Eleven at a football match at the Chatham Football Club ground. Alan Luckhurst designed a brilliant programme cover -- made up of type characters into a picture.-- Carol Dilworth undertook the token kick- off. (See the programme on page17.)
The original 'Docutech Department' guide to the colours of the cards that were loaded on to the printing machine slots on the production office boards--.Co-ordinators would select the required colour, trim it to size and load it, to show the number of hours required on the press at the Medway City Estate works. These colours denoted how the printed jobs would be handled in the bindery. British Rate and Data, (BRAD), was such a large and quick turnaround job that it had its own colour. We managed to secure this huge job at Staples, because as ex machine room manager, I came up with a unique way of printing and binding it that allowed us to beat our competitors. G Curtis
