Team Solan is a charity which aims to offer support for individuals and families who have been affected by cancer. Despite only being set up in 2015 by founder Mark Solan, the charity has had a meteoric rise to success. Initially setting out to raise £1,000 at a charity event in 2015, Solan ended up raising a staggering £21,315. It was off the back of this that Mark decided to set up Team Solan and since then he has raised thousands more and helped over 250 families in Darlington and County Durham who have been affected by cancer. So much so that in 2017, Team Solan won Fundraiser of the Year, awarded by ITV Tyne Tees.
In 2016, we were approached by Team Solan as they looked to order a range of personalised garments. We were more than happy to help the fantastic charity. Since that initial order, we are delighted to say that Team Solan have returned to Workwear Express and made a number of orders. They have included beanies, hoodies and t-shirts which have been emblazoned with the Team Solan logo that was either printed or embroidered on. The garments have been used for fundraising events ran by the charity as well as kitting out volunteers in the Team Solan shop in Spennymoor, the opening of which was another landmark in terms of the success of the charity.
Not only are we here at Workwear Express proud to be providing such a great local charity with their promotional clothing needs, we are also proud to say that we are an official sponsor of Team Solan and we look forward to supporting them in any which way we can in the future.
