Birmingham-based specialist financial services mutual Wesleyan is celebrating its 180th anniversary this week. To mark the occasion, Wesleyan is sponsoring Gratitude, an art installation led by global public art producer Wild in Art.
Gratitude will launch in Birmingham in August 2021 and will see 49 uniquely painted sculptures placed around the city in tribute of the NHS and other key workers who have served throughout the pandemic. Following a UK tour, the sculptures will be auctioned off, with the proceeds donated to NHS Charities Together, who support a variety of NHS services, including hospitals and mental health care providers.
As a specialist in financial solutions for hospital doctors, GPs, dentists and teachers, the partnership with ‘Gratitude’ is an opportunity for Wesleyan to say thank you to its loyal customers, who have worked tirelessly on the frontline over the past year.
Mario Mazzocchi, Chief Executive, at Wesleyan Group said:
“Celebrating our 180th anniversary is a really special moment for us. It’s given us an opportunity to reflect on our history and consider just how much the business has grown. I wish to thank our customers, members, colleagues and the communities we serve for their long-standing support of Wesleyan… As we continue to recognise their incredible dedication, we’re proud to be the Birmingham sponsor of Gratitude and to be supporting the important work of NHS Charities Together.”
