Jewellery brand Buckley London has helped raised over £900 for those affected by the Boxing Day floods in Yorkshire through sales of their bespoke Yorkshire Rose pins.
The Leeds-based company had donated the pins to Tadcaster Grammar School, North Yorkshire, to sell at its Big Band concert, which took place on 20 March.
Gillian Hainsworth, music teacher at Tadcaster Grammar School, said: “We’re thrilled by the generosity shown by Buckley London to donate the stunning Yorkshire Rose pins. The pins proved incredibly popular with the audience and had completely sold out by the end of the concert. The money raised will provide much needed support for those affected by the floods.”
The pin was initially designed by Buckley London as a concept to allow local charities to raise funds through the sale of the pins. Decorated with white enamel and finished with either gold or rhodium tone plating, the pins are a fitting tribute to Yorkshire pride and community spirit.
Adrian Buckley, founder and owner of Buckley London, said: “When I heard about the concert, I was more than happy to help out. I have seen the devastation caused by the floods first-hand, however, in true Yorkshire style, the people of Tadcaster have really pulled together to get back on track. I’m so glad that our bespoke pins have contributed to raising funds for such a worthy cause.”
All profits from the sales of the pins at the event have been donated to the Tadcaster Flood Support and Fundraising group.
