LONDON — Since 2003, when Rosco introduced #313 Light Relief Yellow to its Supergel range, the company has contributed more than $19,000 to the U.K. charity Light Relief, and at PLASA09 one of the charity’s trustees, John Simpson, accepted a check for the latest donation of over $4,100 (about £2,500). “This is the largest check we have presented to Light Relief since the program began,” said Mark Engel, president of Rosco, when presenting the check. “We knew this would be ‘a gift that keeps on giving’ but I don’t think we ever anticipated just how successful it would be!”

Developed with the help of Rick Fisher, co-founder (along with the late Tony Gottelier) of the industry charity which supports lighting designers in difficult times, Light Relief Yellow is the vibrant, sunshine colour of the charity’s logo.

“While one-off donations are extremely welcome, it’s regular donations such as this that enable us to make immediate decisions as to how we are able to help those in need,” said John, who is also chairman of White Light. “It is wonderful that the charity is supported by such unending contributions: this not only reminds users of Light Relief, but also of Rosco's creative generosity every time the color is specified.”
