The Heart of Pragnell

Since our inception in 1945, philanthropic work has remained at the heart of the company. We support a range of charitable organisations both local to Stratford-upon-Avon and across the nation.

Philanthropy

British Red Cross

The British Red Cross helps millions of people in the UK and around the world get the support they need if crisis strikes. In July 2019 Pragnell donated an antique Natural Pearl Dove Brooch to the cause, which was auctioned at the Gala Dinner held at the Savoy.

Philanthropy

Coventry City of Culture

Coventry has been chosen to be the UK's City of Culture for 2021. The title is awarded every four years and Coventry will hope to emulate the success of Hull, which is UK City of Culture this year. The other places in the running for the title were Swansea, Paisley, Stoke-on-Trent and Sunderland.

Philanthropy

The Dinosaur Trust

The Dinosaur Trust funds research into a rare form of Pulmonary Artery Hypertension (PAH) in order to save and improve the lives of children and adults. Pragnell dedicated the Rockstar pendant to the cause, helping to support more people in need.

Philanthropy

We Are Macmillan

Inspired by Macmillan’s ambitions, Pragnell is helping to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and to encourage millions of others to do the same.

Philanthropy

Oxford Children Hospital

Oxford Children's Hospital opened its doors in 2007, designed with the needs of children and their families in mind. In 2018 Pragnell donated a Rockstar pendant, in celebration of the hospital's 10th anniversary as it continues to raise important funds to make a difference to their young patients and their families.

Shakespeare Birthplace Trust

The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust is dedicated to promoting and preserving his works, life and times. We are deeply grateful to them for allowing us access to their archive and treasures, which have inspired the development of the William Shakespeare Anniversary Limited Edition Pen. Five per cent of the income for every pen sold is donated to the Trust to support its ongoing work.

Unicef

Launched in 2013, the annual Unicef Halloween Ball has raised over £4 million to date in support of children in danger. The money raised helps Unicef UK provide blankets, life-saving food, clean water, health care and psycho-social support to children whose lives have been devastated by conflict.
