Creative Tops Ltd announces new licensing partnership with The Wildlife Trusts
Creative Tops Ltd will be launching a beautiful collection of fine bone china mugs in boxes, which will feature some of the UK's most endangered species. The launch will be the first of its kind for The Wildlife Trust and the collection will be unveiled at Spring Fair International in 2012!
The range features wildlife illustrations on fine china mugs, by well-known wildlife artist Mike Langman. The following species are represented: Badger, Blue Tit, Dormouse, Robin, Fox, Red Squirrel, Green Woodpecker, Otter, Kingfisher, Fallow Deer, Tawny Owl and Hedgehog.
Many of the illustrations are of species that are in some way under threat, such as the hedgehog that has suffered from loss of habitat.
Clare Farthing, Marketing and Public Relations Manager, commented: "As a company we are keen to support organisations that seek to protect our natural heritage. The Wildlife Trusts have a wealth of beautiful imagery and a fantastic amount of provenance behind their cause. We hope to be able to communicate their values to a wider commercial audience whilst, through the sale of these beautiful mugs, contribute towards their vital conservation work."
Today there are 47 individual Wildlife Trusts covering the whole of the UK and the Isle of Man and Alderney and together they are the largest UK voluntary organisation dedicated to protecting wildlife and wild places everywhere - at land and sea. They are supported by more than 800,000 members and manage 2,300 nature reserves. Every year The Wildlife Trusts work with thousands of schools and welcome millions of visitors to their nature reserves and visitor centres with one main goal to keep 'an environment rich in wildlife for everyone'.
Brian Eversham, Chief Executive, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire & Northamptonshire Wildlife Trust, commented: "We are very excited to be working with Creative Tops. This lovely collection is a fantastic way of letting people know about our work and raising funds at the same time. Much of our UK wildlife is under increasing threat from development, intensive agriculture and the effects of climate change. This partnership will help to protect our natural heritage for future generations."
Creative Tops Ltd can be found at SFI in Hall 1, stands D50/C51.
