Dorrigo provided Focus School Stockport Campus with waterproof dinky maps for the charity walk to the top of Moel Famau in Wales. Raising over £1300.00 for the NWAA this walk really put the maps to the test. The weather was genuine Welsh rain that soaked everyone.
One student confessed his map had gone through the wash the day before and he was completely amazed at its endurance. The map was still in good condition retaining clarity and paper quality. It saved his bacon too because his mum doesn't appreciate picking sodden paper off the other clothes in the load which occurs when ordinary paper is machine washed! The mother of a second student found that the Dinky Map survived the tempests of a 50 degree wash without destruction and that print quality was virtually unaffected.
