Buckley London Yorkshire Rose Pins Raise Vital Funds for Flood Victims 

Global fashion jewellery brand, Buckley London, has helped raised over £900 for those affected by Boxing Day floods in the Yorkshire region through sales of their bespoke Yorkshire Rose pins. The Leeds-based company had generously donated the pins to Tadcaster Grammar School, North Yorkshire, to sell at their Big Band concert, which took place last weekend (Sunday 20th March).  

Gillian Hainsworth, Teacher of Music at Tadcaster Grammar School, said: “We’re thrilled by the generosity shown by Buckley London to donate the stunning Yorkshire Rose pins. The pins proved incredibly popular with the audience and had completely sold-out by the end of the concert. The money raised will provide much needed support for those affected by the floods.”

The Yorkshire Rose pin was initially designed by Buckley London as a concept to allow local charities to raise funds through the sale of the pins.  Decorated with white enamel and finished with either gold or rhodium tone plating, the pins are a fitting tribute to Yorkshire pride and community spirit.  

Adrian Buckley, Founder and Owner of Buckley London, said: “When I heard about the concert, I was more than happy to help out. I have seen the devastation caused by the floods first-hand, however, in true Yorkshire style, the people of Tadcaster have really pulled together to get back on track. This concert organised by Mrs Hainsworth and the pupils at Tadcaster Grammar school is the perfect example of this. I’m so glad that our bespoke Yorkshire Rose pins have contributed to raising funds for such a worthy cause.”

All profits from the sales of the pins at the event have been donated to the Tadcaster Flood Support and Fundraising group.
