Our biggest ever cheque: £57m for Children in Need!

Anyone who has ordered one of our giant cheques will know how big they are. They are the largest presentation cheques available on the web in the UK. But here is one that is not only big, but for a BIG amount for one of the country’s leading charities: Children in Need.

This whopper was featured on BBC Breakfast and represented the sum of £57,119,501 – the total raised for the Children in Need 2020 Appeal. The massive amount was the culmination of the efforts of fundraisers and donors across the UK who supported the annual Appeal in November 2020. The feat was all the more remarkable as it happened in a pandemic that affected everybody.

We are enormously pleased and proud to see a photocutouts.co.uk giant cheque being presented for such a vital charity.

Here is footage from the live BBC Breakfast broadcast where the cheque was unveiled by Children in Need representatives and Matty, who receives care at Rainbow Hospice and said the donations help children like him to thrive.

Below is a post from our blog earlier this year about our giant cheques in the context of prizegiving ceremonies. The same applies to charity cheques when it is desirable to make a big impression.

The biggest cheque we make is 200 x 100 cm, which as far as we are aware is the largest presentation cheque available online in the UK today. We try to cater for all needs, though, with a range of three sizes: Mini (100cm x 50cm), Maxi (150cm x 75cm) and Mega (200cm x 100cm).

Jumbo cheques for prize givings

Have you ever wondered who makes the jumbo cheques that people pose with for photos at big prize givings? Well, it’s us!

Jumbo cheques printed

We design them ourselves, or we use artwork that the prize-giving company send us. Then we print them in high resolution onto PVC board. This material is lightweight but stiff and weatherproof. No floppy cardboard cheques here. We produce the jumbo cheques as quickly as possible so as not to miss the prize giving ceremony, and ship them out to wherever they are needed.

We can make one-off jumbo cheques that are permanently printed with the prize amount. Alternatively we can print re-usable ones that have the amount area left blank. It can be filled in with whiteboard marker by hand, then wiped clean and used at the next event.

Here’s an example of a company using our jumbo cheques. BOTB are famous for their supercar competitions where players enter a spot the ball competition to win a highly desirable car and a cash prize. They publish the name and photo of each winner after each competition has been judged. In this example the lucky winner was Kashif Mumtaz. He was unable to travel to receive his cheque due to COVID, but there it is in the photo alongside the car he won.

Another Jumbo cheque example is one we made for Omaze, whose Million Pound House Draw supports charitable causes. In this case the cheque is for a £250,000 donation to Teenage Cancer Trust. As you can see, the cheque is huge but the recipient is not struggling to hold it up because it is made of lightweight PVC board.
