Steve Vick reçoit pavot commémorative pour le soutien IGEM

Steve Vick international a été présenté avec un coquelicot en céramique à partir des "Terres et mers de sang rouge Swept" affichage à la Tour de Londres.

Le coquelicot commémoratif de l'installation émouvante et très populaire dans 2014 a été présenté par David Goodall, Vice-président principal de la London, Southern and Eastern Section of IGEM (The Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers) in recognition of the help and support given by the company over many years.

The presentation was made during the Section’s 5th Annual Christmas event on 4th December which, fittingly, began with a private tour of the Imperial War Museum.

David said that the gift was “a thank you to Steve Vick International for sponsoring the event and for supporting the Section over many years”. As the display was not fully dismantled by the date, David handed over the poppy to Steve Vick, fondateur et président de la société, at their Bradford-on-Avon headquarters in early January.

Each of the 888,246 ceramic poppies which filled the famous moat at The Tower represented a British military fatality during the First World War. They have all been sold raising over £22 million for six charities associated with the armed forces.

Steve Vick commented, “I must admit that I was very touched by the gift, not only because David and the Section felt they should thank us for our support, but also because it is such an honour to receive one of these unique poppies. Having been fascinated by the visit to the Imperial War Museum, it made the gift even more poignant. We will be displaying the poppy with pride in our reception at Bradford-on-Avon.”
