East Anglian builders merchant Ridgeons is offering its support as the official logistics partner to the GoGo Dragons event (21 June – 5th September) in Norwich.
Organised by Wild in Art and Break charity, GoGo Dragons is an interactive arts sculpture trail, which brings more than 80 large and over 100 smaller painted dragon sculptures, to various locations across Norwich, to help raise money for local vulnerable children.
Ridgeons is providing twenty team members and eight of its largest lorries to transport each dragon to their designated locations across Norwich. The dragons will be displayed for 10 weeks, after which, Ridgeons will be responsible for delivering them to the Forum in Norwich (27-30 September), where visitors will have their last chance to view the sculptures, which will then be auctioned for charity on the 1st October.
In addition to transport support, Ridgeons is also sponsoring its very own dragon sculpture – Cyril – which will be located at St Andrews Hall in Norwich.
Mike Fields, area general manager at Ridgeons’ Rocklands branch, said: “This is the second time Ridgeons staff have supported the Break event to help raise money for the charity, so it’s fantastic that we are able to lend a helping hand again.
“Ridgeons has been part of the East-Anglian community for over 100 years, with our fleet of trucks being a common sight, so it’s great that we can use them to help raise money for such a worthy cause and give back to the local area.”
