Raymond Weil’s passion for music has led it to making special watches in association with The Beatles, Buddy Holly, Bob Marley and David Bowie. It is also the official timekeeper for the Manchester Arena, the biggest live music venue in the North West.
The watchmaker often weaves charitable activities into its musical associations, and was at it again last week when it supported the music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins by sponsoring the International Group Award at a star-studded event held in support of the organisation.
The award this year was won by The Black-Eyed Peas, and was presented to the group by Craig Leach, Raymond Weil’s UK brand director.
“It is a great honour to once again support the largest independent music therapy charity in the UK and the vital work that they do, as well as sponsor the highly coveted International Group Award for the 19th year running, which was presented to this year’s hugely worthy winners, the Black-Eyed Peas. Previous winners include many iconic artists such as John Legend, Foo Fighters, Bob Geldof, Kylie Minogue, Hozier, Nile Rodgers and The Script. Since 1976, Nordoff Robbins has been committed to changing the lives of vulnerable and isolated people and we are extremely proud to have witnessed the charity’s dedication first-hand,” Mr Leach said.
The annual Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards Luncheon is now the jewel in the charity’s fundraising crown and a highlight of the UK music industry’s calendar.
The event has raised over £10 million for Nordoff Robbins and honoured some of the greatest names in music.
