The Alzheimer’s Society has launched a range of four pin badges of characters from the children’s TV series “The Clangers” as part of Alzheimer’s Awareness Week (4-10 July).
The range of four pin badges will be on sale at all branches of Halifax and Bank of Scotland throughout July 2004. The charity is hoping that other retailers will come on board to stock the badges and support the Alzheimer’s Society.
The charity aims to raise £55,000 from badge sales.
The Alzheimer’s Society has been granted a licence to use the cult 70′s TV characters “The Clangers” for two years and Oliver Postgate and Peter Firmin, the makers of the series are supporting the fundraising campaign.
