‘Sore Feet for the Beat’ charity achievement is supported with pin badges
22 Oct 2020
An Ipswich Town fan has recently completed a mammoth 320-mile walk to raise money and to help start a foundation in the name of football legend Kevin Beattie – and special pin badges have been supplied to help.
Over the course of two weeks long term friend and football fan Malcolm Thompson completed the trek from Kevin’s birthplace in Carlisle to the football stadium he graced in Ipswich. The marathon distance was covered to raise funds for starting the Kevin Beattie Foundation. It is hoped that the foundation will be a fitting legacy to Kevin which raises much needed money for different causes and charities. ‘Sore Feet for the Beat’ has proved a fantastic way to begin the work.
When Malcolm approached Best Badges with an idea to raise the profile of the Foundations launch efforts, we were immediately enthusiastic to help. Like Malcolm, we understood that pin badges are an ideal way to show support for a cause.
Malcolm wanted a simple and clear badge with the initials of the foundation rendered in blue and white, the colours of Ipswich Town Football Club. We recommended a hard enamel badge because the superior surface finish would mean that the badges were both long lasting and beautiful in appearance.
A free artwork proof was supplied and the badges went into production as soon as Malcolm was happy with the design. The completed badges were ready a few weeks later.
Malcolm said of the final badges “The badges have arrived and they are great thank you. These will go down well. Thanks again for all your help and support in this.”
At Best Badges, we hope that the Kevin Beattie Foundation can prove to be a success and realise the ambition of one of Ipswich Town’s most fondly remembered footballers. Wear those badges with pride!
