X Factor Childline Ball the Auction aftermath

Posted by

Active International is proud to be a supporter of the NSPCC and the X Factor ChildLine Ball.

Our CEO Dean Wilson attends annually as a guest of Phillipa Brown, CEO of Omnicom UK – also a big supporter of the NSPCC. This year, the ball rose over £500,000 – enabling volunteers to answer over 150,000 calls from some of the UK’s most vulnerable children and young people.

The annual auction, always a highlight of the evening – has led to a number of interesting icons popping up in the Active offices, as well as the holiday we donated raising over £6,000 for charity.

This year’s artistic addition for £3600 was the Copper Box – the BT Artbox created to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and London 2012. As beautifully modelled by Dean Wilson below, a few of us are still questioning whether it will fit in the lift, and how we can successfully get it up to the 19th floor of Centerpoint tower.

This joins the 2010 Big Brother gold angel winged chair with an acrylic seat for £5000. Whilst I have tried convincing Dean it would look much better in his office behind the desk, he assures me his own office chair is much more comfortable – even if it doesn’t make an entertaining photo opportunity.
