Spalding and Boston employees of Coveris helped raise £22,000 for the children’s cancer charity, CLIC Sargent, in memory of colleague Steve Callaway, who died in November 2013.

Steve, who had cancer himself, adopted the charity after one of his son’s friends passed away from the illness.


Most of the cash came from a cycle ride with employees pedalling along the east and west coasts, meeting up in Boston.

Coveris was formed when five firms merged, including the Spalding and Boston branches of Paragon Labels.

Steve had worked in both towns.

In 2014, Coveris employees raised £27,000 in Steve’s memory for CLIC Sargent.
