Hollywood Monster has doubled its banner finishing capacity with a second 16m Fiab HF welding machine.
“This means that we can now finish around 4000m2 of eco banners per day,” said MD Simon Mckenzie. “This is our first major investment since the pandemic, and we have another significant investment to share with you all in July.”
Meanwhile, following swiftly on the heels of Hollywood Monster founder and chairman Tim Andrews having received an MBE for his work with LoveBrum, the charity has announced he is stepping down as chairman but heading up a new strategic team.
The charity’s trustees have been split into main operations and strategic advisory boards, with the aim of ensuring innovation in areas such as digital, fundraising and grant distribution. Andrews - who co-founded the charity with David Maclean in 2014 - will lead the strategic team. Rebecca Simkiss, MD at Simkiss Guy Recruitment will replace Andrews as LoveBrum’s chair. Many other appointments and changed have been made too.
Andrews said of the change: “It is encouraging to see so many charities stepping up to adapt at pace and continue to deliver the brilliant work that they do, just like everyone has done with LoveBrum. Because of this, we can face the remainder of 2021 and beyond with hope.
LoveBrum promises to continue working as hard as it can in its never-more-needed support of Birmingham’s brilliant local projects, and in doing so, not give up on the millions of beneficiaries who rely on the public benefit these projects deliver.”
The charity is on the look-out for additional board members who can bring experience and skills in areas such as fundraising, legal, finance, and marketing.
