Hampshire flags - on Mount Kilimanjaro
Hampshire Flag Company regularly donates flags and banners for charitable events and fundraising purposes. Pictured are two flags on the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, thanks to gruelling fundraising expeditions by teams from two leading firms.
Hampshire Flag donated a 183cm x 91cm flag to Snows Group in Southampton, which raised more than £20,000 for a local children's charity. The challenge was undertaken by Snows Group Chairman Stephen Snow and Group Board Director Neil McCue.
The firm also donated a 183cm x 91cm flag that was taken to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro by Zaki and Dominique Kanaan from K2Dental in Fulham, London. They raised over £6000 for Bridge2Aid, a charity that provides vital free dental care, education and training in Northwest Tanzania as well as a community development programme to help the poor and disabled in Mwanza. Both Zaki and Dominique are members of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD).
HMS Liverpool's homecoming boosted by banner and flags
To celebrate the return last winter of HMS Liverpool from a seven month stint off the coast of Libya, Hampshire Flag produced, in partnership with The Portsmouth News, this giant 20 metre long banner pictured.
The Royal Navy Type 42 destroyer sailed into its Portsmouth base amidst cheers and waves from well-wishers and to the sight of the banner, which said 'Welcome home HMS Liverpool' along with 'The Crazy Red Chicken is back', referring to the ship's nickname. Hampshire Flag also donated 100 handwaving Union Jack flags and 200m of Union Jack bunting.
