Jasmine signs up to fight for every heartbeat
An Aberdeen-based document management company has joined forces with the country’s heart charity to support its work to end heart disease.
Jasmine Limited has been affected by the impact of cardiovascular disease in recent years which has prompted the company to establish a link with the British Heart Foundation.
Keith Tait, a director of Printagraph before the company merged in to Jasmine passed away in 2012 following a heart attack. In 2017, Jasmine business consultant Chris McGeehan underwent triple bypass heart surgery after a GP health check identified he was at risk.
Mr McGeehan, who returned to work after a successful operation and a period of recovery, said: “It came as a big shock to be told I needed triple bypass heart surgery as I have been fortunate to enjoy good health throughout my life.
“Going through the medical process and my operation really opened my eyes to how important the work of the British Heart Foundation is. Cardiovascular disease is more common than people realise, and it can have a huge impact on your health.
“I feel very proud that Jasmine has joined forces with the British Heart Foundation and we’ll do everything we can to help them to end heart disease.”
Jasmine will support the work of the British Heart Foundation by donating five percent of any new client’s office printing spend on a ‘cost per print’ basis to the charity.
It’s hoped the new partnership will raise significant funds for the charity, which is the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research in the UK.
Heart and circulatory disease causes more than a quarter (27 percent) of all deaths in Scotland, or more than 15,000 deaths per year. Every month 2,100 people will go to hospital due to a heart attack and 685,000 people are living with cardiovascular disease.
Sean Hills, sales director for Jasmine, said: “We’re pleased to support the British Heart Foundation by pledging a percentage of print sales, whether from a single device or multiple copier machines across the UK.
“We’re very proud to be a local, Aberdeen-based company which allows us to be on-hand to deliver a professional and efficient service to our clients.
“We believe each print will help make a difference to the British Heart Foundation and as our clients use their office printers through the course of the working day, this will effectively raise funds to support the charity’s fight to end heart disease which is a fantastic cause and very personal to Jasmine as a company.”
Kathy McIlwaine, Fundraising Manager for British Heart Foundation Scotland, said: “We’re delighted that Jasmine has offered to support us in our work and really appreciate what is an imaginative way to raise funds.
“We all use print in our day-to-day working lives and it’s great to think that each time we print we’re helping to raise funds for life saving research into heart and circulatory diseases.”
