Charity Awards September 25, 2017 11:16
Welcome back to the Creative Awards blog where we bring you the very best in bespoke awards and design. In today's blog post we celebrate Charity Awards Week where we examine our awards for some of the biggest charities in the UK. We are immensely proud to work with a range of charities and help to make their events and evenings special for those attending and helping to raise money to support their fine causes.
Since 1980 the BBC's Children In Need has raised over £600 million for disabled children and young people across the UK. Indeed, the fixture has become a staple of British culture and a yearly TV highlight. The iconic mascot of Children In Need, Pudsey Bear has become a beloved TV character for many across the land. Creative Awards were honoured to be tasked with designing the inaugural Sir Terry Wogan Fundraiser of the Year award that celebrates the individual who has gone above and beyond in raising money for the charity, paying homage to the late Sir Terry Wogan who hosted the show for over 20 years. A handmade model of the iconic bear was first created from clay and a highly detailed cast was made to create the resin base. A beautiful silver finish was applied with semi-precious stones adorn the statue adding glamour and taking the beautiful design even further.

The Wood Fusion is the latest bespoke award from Creative Awards. The result of over 2 years' intense R & D, the piece is a versatile and beautiful award that would lend itself well to charities. Made from optically clear acrylic expertly fashioned into a minimalist column, the body of the award features a rich, organic wood that offers a contrast to the sharp lines of the acrylic. The award can be customised to any colour and wood combination and engraved with the event and recipient's details making it the perfect piece for a charity event.
Founded in 1990, the Teenage Cancer Trust improves the lives of young people suffering from cancer. As well as providing specialist cancer units in hospitals across the UK, the Teenage Cancer Trust also helps to train specialist teenage cancer staff. The famous charity host a special event each year at the Royal Albert Hall where a selection of musicians, comedians and celebrities host the evenings that raise money for the charity. This year's award was designed by illustrator, director and artist Jamie Hewitt (creator of Gorillaz and Tank Girl) and created by Creative Awards. The resin statue, based on an original design by Jamie, features the signature cartoon style and holds aloft, in the ultimate rock and roll pose, a beautiful hand crafted aluminium guitar. Each award was finished with a signature by Roger Daltry of The Who, a patron of the charity.

Creative Awards are proud to offer an exciting range of eco-friendly awards, handmade from 100% sustainable sources that minimise the impact on the environment. These organic trophies use the natural imperfections of locally sourced slate and 100% FSC-approved beech to create an eco-friendly award that is versatile and memorable. Perfect for charity events, the awards' one-of nature mean that each award is slightly different due to the materials used. A fine idea for charity events, each award can be finished and engraved with the ceremony and winner's details.
