Charity Awards 2020
Welcome back to the Creative Awards London blog where we bring you the very best in bespoke awards and design. As the UK prepares to reopen, we want to use our latest blog entry to draw attention to some of the fabulous charities that we work with. 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 London 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.

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.

The Blind Veterans support anyone who has served in the Armed Forces, or who has participated in National Service, and who is now living with significant sight loss.They help blind ex-Service men and women lead independent and fulfilling lives by supporting them with in-depth expertise, experience and full range of services. For over 100 years, the charity has given much-needed support to adjust to sight loss, overcome the challenges of blindness and enjoy daily life. The bespoke acrylic Perspex award is made from a profiled multicoloured acrylic plaque. The body of the award takes the charity's colour scheme and aesthetics from the Union Jack. The bespoke acrylic plaque was entirely hand assembled and finished in house to create this magnificent and impressive design. What makes this award particularly special is that the back features a textured finish for the visually impaired recipients to feel.
In these uncertain times we want to celebrate all healthcare professionals for providing care to our most needy. Whilst the award itself was not commissioned for a charity event, the design and style would lend itself well to a charity gala. With healthcare systems under strain across the world, medical professionals must be applauded for their bravery and dedication. Our custom ECG Award, was produced for a leading healthcare provider and features a satin base and precision engineered, colour matched body.
Our column awards are made from high quality aluminium and electrically dyed creating a sleek bespoke metal award that is a modern take on the classic column award. Ideal for charity events, the awards can be electronically dyed in a range of colours to match the branding of the event. What’s more, the colour can be offset by the natural silver of the aluminium, through engraving, creating a rich contrast of colours.For more information on any of our awards or to request a quote contact our teams via firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 8159 2748.
