We cannot claim to have designed or made the Queen’s Baton for the recent Commonwealth Games
(Even though a part of it was 3D printed). Nor the iconic 2012 Olympic torch.
But at Amalgam we are proud to have made our own version – after a fashion…
Every year supermarket chain Morrison’s staff vote for a worthwhile cause to be the company’s charity partner to benefit from their ‘Raise a Smile’ programme. This year’s charity is Sue Ryder, an organisation that provides incredible care for people who are diagnosed with life a changing illness.
As a part of the companies fund-raising efforts M Local stores arranged a 24 hour relay race, each leg being completed on a different and unusual form of transport and at each hand-over our specially created “Apple Baton” was handed over. OK so we didn’t carry a message from The Queen, or visit 71 nations along the way but did the other famous games’ baton raise money for charity along the way?
What’s more the M Local baton is the work of Amalgam’s scenic artist Elaine Carr who sculpted and painted the whole thing from scratch – so we can truthfully state that “No apples were harmed in the making of this baton!”…
