Commercial printer, W&G Baird, has been praised by sporting legend Lady Mary Peters for the quality of her new autobiography which it printed.

Titled Mary Peters, My Story, the book which recently launched, was supported by sponsorship by Bailie Group with all proceeds from book sales doing towards the Mary Peters Sports Trust. 

The Bailie Group, County Antrim, is a family-owned group of agencies and consultancies which invest in people and ideas to make a positive difference.

Published by Blackstaff Press, the autobiography is described as a testament to Lady Mary Peters’ dedication to empowering the next generation of athletes. Having won Gold at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games, Peters has since become an ambassador for sport for the country and has received several royal honours.

Commenting at the signing of the first copies of the book, Peter said: “I am immensely grateful to everyone for their kindness and generosity in getting us to this exciting stage, particularly that of both Roy Bailie of Bailie Group for their incredible print sponsorship and the team at W&G Baird for producing such a wonderful book.”

Patrick Moffett, managing director of W&G Baird, adds: “Mary’s life story is nothing short of captivating and she has touched countless lives through her remarkable journey. The entire team is delighted to have been involved in this fantastic project, and I am excited for readers to discover, like I have, the incredible journey of this extraordinary athlete and person.”

W&G Baird has a 160-year history in print and works across three sites throughout Ireland and the UK. The company employs over 100 people and operates one of the largest sheet-fed capacity print rooms in the country. 

This month, W&G Baird also embarked on its ‘Carbon Neutral Journey’ campaign which will see the company embark on activities to highlight and demonstrate greener ways to print, share key facts on printing and the environment, share its internal pledges for the environment, and commit to going Carbon Neutral.
