Oh what a day….oh what a month….
Today is Arthur Wharton’s 155th Birthday anniversary and we celebrated him in style. The culmination of the last 4 weeks work in partnership with BT and BT Sport has produced lasting testament to the late, great Arthur Wharton.
Today saw us land the following:
1) a new re-platformed website – thanks so much to the D&I Guild in BT Digital for doing this. You all rock.
2) the mural….have you seen it? It’s incredible. JayKaes, we are so proud of what you have given the Foundation & the people of Darlington.
3) BT Sport Long Feature…..have you seen this? Find ANYONE you know that has BT Sport. What an amazing job from; Mike, Kevin, Rosie, Jeff. We love you all and are very proud of you. We are awaiting confirmation of the broadcasting schedule from BT, as the team were in Darlington filming the unveiling of the mural today. It’s going to be a MUST WATCH.
4) Arthur Wharton #1 – last but not least, an absolutely fantastic three minute Arthur Wharton #1 compilation – including some rather familiar faces & friends of the Foundation. Mike Rodgers – we salute you. Amazing Amazing Amazing. Proper goosebumps stuff and lump in throat. Well done, proud of your work.
All that’s left to say is a big thank you to everyone who has contributed towards making today such an incredible day.
Happy Birthday Arthur – 155th anniversary today. Memorable. Poignant. Significant.
