Printing a Board Game for The Hepatitis C Trust, SE1

Printed board game and cards for The Hepatitis C Trust

Southside Print London Bridge has recently printed an innovative and visually striking educational tool for The Hepatitis C Trust, a registered charity located just up the road at Crosby Row, London SE1. The educational tool comes in the form of a board game, 50cm square, which is printed in full colour in a style similar to Monopoly or Snakes & Ladders. Along with the board itself comes a set of players’ cards that are used to affect progress and outcomes during the ‘game’. However, The Buddy Game is actually way more than a game. Part of a National project, it’s an educational tool that helps to train volunteers to help those who have come into contact with Hepatitis C, in the best possible way.
