Thousands of West Africans are being given vital health information using booklets printed in Norfolk.

Thousands of West Africans are being given vital health information using booklets printed in Norfolk.

Printing firm Blackwell John Buckle of Yarmouth has just completed a £5000 order for 10,000 items for export to Accra in Ghana. The booklets were for a privately run but government-backed health organisation, GSMF. The literature covered topics including malaria and Aids.

Salesman Roger Tubby told the EDP: "This was clearly very important work – it required not just quality, but a very fast turn-around too and that is where Blackwell John Buckle made the greatest impression. The artwork arrived on the Monday morning and the first batch of finished booklets was on a plane to Accra on the Tuesday night.

"The agency's director made a personal visit to Yarmouth to see the work in progress and did have just a short time to explore our town and seafront – and was very complimentary."

Blackwell John Buckle has a staff of 30 and is based in Charles Street, Yarmouth.
