Herd of Sheffield
Thursday, June 23, 2016
We embrace supporting good causes here at PMS Diecasting and throughout the year enjoy participating in several fundraising events. This year, in addition to our various smaller fundraisers, we have decided to support ‘The Children’s Hospital Charity’.
Herd of Sheffield
This summer a herd of elephant sculptures will descend on Sheffield for the biggest public art event the city has ever seen! To show our support in 2016 we’ve sponsored one of the very large elephant sculptures which will be displayed in the city from July – October.
PMS Diecasting’s elephant is called ‘G’ for short. Her official name is Gullal Graffiti. Her talented artist is Sue Guthrie who has been painting our elephant in her studios in Birmingham. Sue is often commissioned for her art and last year she created a ‘jewellerey owl’ for the BIG HOOT in Birmingham which raised £8500 at auction raising money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
Sue has sent us through some sneak peeks of ‘G’ before her big reveal in July.
Watch this space for PMS events this summer with ‘G’ our elephant!
Sheffield Children’s Hospital is one of just four stand-alone children’s hospitals in the UK, and the only one in Yorkshire.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of children come from all over the UK and abroad for specialist treatment at the hospital. Thanks to pioneering clinicians, they are forging the way in paediatric care and are recognised as a centre of excellence in fields ranging from asthma and cystic fibrosis to cancer, gastroenterology and major trauma.
The Children’s Hospital Charity makes this extraordinary hospital even better, funding enhancements that are above and beyond the NHS provision. Thanks to the generosity of supporters, the charity can fund life-saving medical equipment, research into the prevention and cure of childhood illnesses and improvements to the environment.
