Pangea Sculptures has thrown its weight behind Michael Josephson Summer Ball and the Legend of Industry Awards, donating four life-size animal sculptures as part of the auction prizes.
The first event, the Michael Josephson Summer Ball is being held at the end of June at the Hilton Hotel in Manchester. All funds raised will be donated to three local charities including Variety, Seashell Trust and Silverline. Last year the event garnered massive support raising over £250,000 for local children’s charities. This year, to add some sparkle to the occasion, Pangea has donated a medium sized glitter elephant, which at six foot tall is sure to attract lots of attention!
The second event, taking place in October this year, is the Legends of Industry Awards. These awards celebrate the achievements of high profile individuals who have made a significant contribution to charitable fund raising. As well as sponsoring this award, Pangea has donated a gorilla, medium giraffe and a large stag.
Last year’s winners included Dame Kelly Holmes ,Professor Phil Redmond CBE, Mark Adlestone OBE DL, Jimmy Tarbuck OBE, Wayne Sleep OBE, Bryan Robson OBE, Christopher Biggins, Andrew Geddes, Kate Adie CBE and The First response Team BTP Manchester Arena Bombing
Beverley Howard, General Manager of Pangea Sculptures explained: “it’s important that we support local charities be it through attendance support or donation. Were really pleased to be part of these important events where we hope our sculptures will not only attract some strong bidding but will inject a touch of animal fun and flair to the occasion!”
Charitable support in 2018
In 2018 we supported, The Purple Poppy appeal and raised over £1300 for two charities, Household Cavalry Foundation and Mane Chance Sanctuary. We ran a series of promotions to help incentivise customers to support the event. We lent our ‘war horses’ so that they could be exhibited in the local Booth’s supermarket and entertained everyone at the Purple Poppy Appeal at a launch event in our showroom. We also auctioned and raised over £10,000 at the Duerr’s Ball in 2018 for Cash For Kids.
