A limited-edition replica of the “Bullseye” Bronze Bully Trophy has launched in support of the Stroke Association and is now available on Blu Goblin.
“Bullseye” has been on television for four decades. Repeats of the show can be seen on Challenge TV on Freeview, Sky and Virgin Media in the U.K.
The Bully Trophy comes in a handmade, purple silk lined presentation box, with the “Bullseye” 40th anniversary logo on the lid and engraved on the base of the statuette. An individually numbered certificate of authenticity is included, numbering from 1-501 and signed by Andrew J Wood, creator, “Bullseye. “
The goal of the partnership is to raise funds and awareness for the Stroke Association, a charity working across the U.K. to support people to rebuild their lives after a stroke.
“I recommend all ‘Bullseye’ fans and darts enthusiasts visit Blugoblin.com now,” says Tracey Richardson, director, licensing and partnerships, Blu Goblin. “They can order one of just 501 replica Bully trophies and in doing so support the Stroke Association, a cause close to the hearts of the darts community.”
“We loved the Blu Goblin model as soon as we saw it,” says Vicky Miller, licensing director, Bulldog Licensing. “Creating high-quality, limited-edition products for fans and supporting incredibly important causes at the same time is a winning combination. We are thrilled to be working with the team to launch this very special replica Bronze Bully, a super, smashing, great way for fans to celebrate 40 years of their favorite gameshow!”
“The Stroke Association is a charity that is very close to our hearts, and having just celebrated our 40th anniversary, partnering with them and Blu Goblin to bring replica Bronze Bully Trophies to our fans feels very special to us,” says Laura Wood, brand and social media manager, “Bullseye.” “As Jim Bowen would have said, this is a 'super, smashing, great' partnership.”
“Stroke strikes every five minutes in the U.K., and it changes lives in an instant,” says Saul Heselden, head of corporate partnerships, Stroke Association. “Our much-needed specialist support, research and campaigning are only possible with the generosity of our supporters. We’re thrilled that Bulldog Licensing and the Blu Goblin team have worked together to support the Stroke Association through the sale of limited-edition replicas of Bronze Bully. The funds raised will go a long way in supporting our work to rebuild even more lives after stroke.”
For each Bronze Bully sold, Blu Goblin will donate 10% of the sales to the Stroke Association, a registered charity number 211015 (and Scottish charity registration number SC037789).
