...and raises £1,000 for charity
Distributor of fixings, fasteners, power tool accessories and hardware, ForgeFix has turned charity fundraising into an art form. The business recently donated a unique portrait created using 4,000 of the company's ForgeFast elite performance woodscrews for sale at charity auction.
The picture, a 1.2 x 1m portrait of David Bowie, sold for £1,000 at the silent auction, which was held at the NMBS Gala Dinner in April. All proceeds from the sale have been donated to CRASH - the construction industry charity, which supports homeless and hospice charities with free advice, practical assistance and financial aid.
The Bowie picture comes from a series of similar images, which ForgeFix has dubbed ScrewsArt™. Other portraits include an image of boxing legend, Muhammad Ali.
ForgeFix began creating the portraits as a unique and innovative way to demonstrate the capabilities of its ForgeFast woodscrews. Launched in 2016, ForgeFast woodscrews outperform the majority of premium woodscrews currently on the market in a wide range of areas, and due to their exceptional characteristics, ForgeFix has positioned these screws in a new and elite performance category in order to highlight their next generation capabilities.
All of the ScrewsArt™ portraits were created with the help of existing and potential customers who attended the launch events and by visitors to ForgeFix's stand at various trade shows and exhibitions over the last nine months.
