In The Community

Not only are Meakins a great supplier for all your company's marketing and office materials, but we also love getting involved in various initiatives in the community. Here are a few things we have been involved in previously.

If you are interested in getting involved in some initiatives alongside Meakins, please contact us.

St John Ambulance Service

We have helped our very own Danielle Meakin to raise money for her chosen charity, as she is running the marathon on behalf of St John Ambulance Service. By posting her blogs on our website, helping her to collect money at events we have attended, and sponsoring her ourselves, she has managed to nearly reach her total of £2000! Thankyou to everyone involved and good luck Danielle!

Find all of Danielle's blogs in our "News" section.

Mersea Island Junior Rugby Club

Meakins are very proud to be associated with the Mersea Island Junior Rugby Team, "The Foxes" and very much enjoy the lunches and events that we help to put on. These lunches are a great source of income for the club, and they really bring the community spirit alive!

All details of current and future involvement with Mersea Rugby Club are in our "News" Section.

Sponsors of Essex Wildlife Trust

We are proud to support the Essex Wildlife Trust, and have been since 2014. The Essex Wildlife Trust are a fantastic charity, and are the countries leading conservation initiative. We are very happy to be affiliated with them, and hope that our relationship last for many more years.

Heybridge Swifts Under 13's "Top Trumps" Christmas Gift

In December, we were approached by Ian Ball, the Under 13's coach at Heybridge Swifts to produce a set of "Top Trump" style cards. We decided to do these for free as a "good will" gesture to the club. The boys loved them, and Ian wrote us a shining recommendation, which you can find here.

Farleigh  Hospice

ARC Promotions, which is owned by Andrew Meakin (Managing Director of Meakins), Rob Bowyer (Tiptree Building Supplies) and Colin Morgan (Sales Manager at Meakins), put on a boxing event in April 2016. We helped them to raise £1600 for Farleigh Hospice, which helps to care for patients and families across Essex every day. Whether a patient requires relief from symptoms, help to live an independent life, financial support or bereavement support for the family, Farleigh are on hand to help these people, completely free of charge. They run entirely on donations from the local community.
We are extremely happy to help with all the work Farleigh do, and if you would like to know anymore information about any of ARC's events, please email us at
