Music to the ears as an Osmond stops by
24 July 2013
Disposables UK, recently played host to Merrill Osmond, lead singer of The Osmonds as he paid a visit to its Huddersfield premises to promote a gala evening. The event, to be held in Leeds on 1 September, will raise funds for charities; The Hearing Fund UK and Music and the Deaf, with monies benefitting deaf children in Yorkshire, (see www.hearingfund.org.uk).
The visit was prompted by Disposables' association with the EU Ecolabel. The Brussels-based scheme is a sponsor of the gala and was offered a visit by Merrill Osmond which it asked Disposables to host. Disposables has worked closely with Ecolabel since becoming, it believes, the first UK paper converter in the away from home market to gain EU Ecolabel certification on its Bay West range of paper products.
Disposables gave a presentation, then Merrill talked about the charity. The Hearing Fund UK, was founded by Merrill's son Justin who was born with 90% hearing loss. Merrill's two eldest brothers were born profoundly deaf and his parents formed their four eldest sons into a barbershop quartet to raise funds for hearing aids. They went on to form The Osmonds.
