Recycling firm Ward has thanked staff for helping the company achieve a Queen’s Award with gift boxes supplied by Colleague Box.

The fourth-generation family business was recently named as a recipient of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.

Bosses at Ward wanted to do something special to thank staff for helping it achieve the award – and turned to fellow Marketing Derby Bondholder Colleague Box.

Founded by husband-and-wife team Adam and Natalie Bamford in 2020, at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, Colleague Box creates personalised gift boxes.

Ward worked with Adam and Natalie to produce over 400 bespoke ‘thank you boxes’ from the board.

Each one was decked out in red, white and blue and included a letter of thanks from board members, a Queen’s Award pin badge and pen and some sweet treats for staff to enjoy.

Donald Ward, operations director at Ward, said: “We’re very proud of the team’s efforts in helping us to achieve our recent accolade of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.

“We wanted to thank them for their commitment and dedication to working at Ward.

“We felt that a special delivery over the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations would be the perfect gesture and were keen to work with Colleague Box to support a local business in their new venture. They did a fantastic job.”

Adam said: “It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Ward to send over 400 gifts directly to colleagues’ home addresses.

“Being involved in thanking employees for earning the Queen’s Award is a huge honour for us and is yet another use for Colleague Box that is a first but hopefully not the last.”
