Leading full-service Advertising & Marketing group, The Partnership Agency has offered a substantial donation to the organisers of the ever popular, Last Night of the Proms event on Albert Pier in Guernsey on Saturday 12th September 2009.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Guernsey’s ‘Proms on the Pier’, as it is affectionately known locally is now in its fifth year and is a winning cultural combination of live musical entertainment from Guernsey’s very best musicians and the broadcast of the second half of the Last Night of the Proms from the Royal Albert Hall in Kensington, London.
Tony Tostevin, Director of The Partnership Agency says, ‘We’re really pleased to help bring the Proms to the people of Guernsey. It’s a great community event that beholds a magical atmosphere for all those who attend. This is just one of many community projects we have been involved across all our jurisdictions’.
2008 saw over 4,000 people congregate on Albert Pier to enjoy the live music in the first half of the evening’s programme and then enter into the patriotic spirit waving Union Jacks, the Guernsey flag and singing along with the audience broadcast live from the Royal Albert Hall in the second hall.
‘This event epitomises our pursuit of ‘putting smiles on people’s faces’” said Mike O’Hara, Minister of Culture and Leisure. “The States of Guernsey are hugely appreciative to The Partnership Agency for offering a donation to support this hugely popular event.’
The Last Night of the Proms was founded by Robert Newman in 1895 and has been staged annually in London for nearly 115 years and in Guernsey for the past five years.
Historically, The Partnership Agency has also brought snow to Jersey school children in 2008 and this year has supported the Set Sail Trust with the development of schools and clubs and a range of marine activities. The Set Sail Trust enables underprivileged members of Guernsey’s community access to a range of activities and experiences.
