TALL Group Provides Sustainable Solution For BBC Children In Need

BBC Children in Need
BBC Children in Need Fundraising Packs

BBC Children in Need – The TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure paper and electronic payment solutions, is working with the BBC Children in Need to support this year’s fundraising efforts by providing sustainable print solutions for supporting HSBC banking documents. Runcorn-based TALL Security Print, a TALL Group company, will be producing bank paying-in slips for Children in Need printed on paper supplied through their partner Premier Paper. Premier gives companies the opportunity to work very closely with the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity, the Woodland Trust, in order to mitigate their CO2 emissions from paper purchases through the Carbon Capture programme.

Carbon Capture sees an additional contribution for each tonne of paper bought passed directly on to the Woodland Trust to fund the planting of native British trees to capture carbon from the atmosphere, creating beautiful woodland and natural habitats for wildlife. The TALL Group have so far produced 156,400 paying in slips, 150,000 A4 & A3 fundraising letters for both England and N Ireland and 11,000 A4 and A3 fundraising letters in Wales for Children in Need.

Martin Ruda, Group Managing Director of TALL Group, said: “We are working with Premier Paper as part of our commitment to sustainable print solutions. As a group, we are very proud to provide our specialist services to BBC Children in Need, and committing to the Carbon Capture through the Woodland Trust adds even more value to that partnership. More than 500 of Premier Paper’s customers have already signed up to the scheme, and we’re confident that, at TALL, we’ll see more print opportunities in the near future where we can mitigate the CO2 emissions generated by the production, storage and distribution of the paper we purchase. Across the production sector we want to see every supplier take their environmental responsibility seriously and do their bit for the planet.”

The UK currently has just 13% of woodland cover compared to the European average of 37%. After the oceans, woodland is the biggest sink of CO2. So far over 65,000 tonnes of carbon have been captured through the Carbon Capture programme, equivalent to capturing the CO2 from 20 billion sheets of A4 paper.

The TALL Group Announces More Certificate Client Wins In Africa


TALL Security Print, part of the TALL Group of Companies, is celebrating another series of new contract wins in Africa, adding two Nigerian Universities to its fast-growing portfolio in the region.  Under the terms of the new deals TALL Security Print will print graduation certificates for a number of Nigerian universities including the University of Ibadan and Ahmadu Bello University, taking their total to 17.

A base stock of certificates is produced and stored at its UK premises for overseas customers that can then be ordered directly.  This results in a quick turnaround without a backlog.  Each document is personalised with student details and a photograph if requested, giving both the university, the student and any employer the assurance that their certificates are genuine, verified and trustworthy. This year alone the company has already received orders for over 150,000 certificates.

Martin Ruda, Group Managing Director of the TALL Group of Companies, said, “Universities and students can have faith in our products and know that they will be accepted with confidence in the wider world by future employers.  Secure printing is of great importance to Nigerian universities, which often fall victim to fraudulent printing. As a result, many universities are now approaching TALL Security Print because we have established an internationally renowned expertise in this market for over two decades.”

The new contracts come after the Group announced they had become suppliers for the University of Ilorin, the Federal University of Technology, Minna and the Lagos State Polytechnic. Prior to using the TALL Security Print secure certificate service, between 100-150 incidents of document fraud were found each year at the University of Ilorin and this figure has now been reduced to virtually zero.

Elsewhere in Africa, TALL Security Print has now printed certificates for various universities in Somaliland and schools’ certificates for the Somaliland National Examinations and Certification Board (100K). For KNEC (Kenya National Examinations Council), they produced around 2M certificates of various types as well as certificates for LUANAR (Lilongwe University of Agriculture & Natural Resources), Malawi.
