DENNIS & LAVERY FINE JEWELLERY FORMS FUNDRAISING PARTNERSHIP WITH THE WAYNE SLEEP FOUNDATION

  • 10% OF PROFITS FROM PRIMA BALLERINA COLLECTION DONATED
  • AIM IS TO SUPPORT TALENTED YOUNG PERFORMERS ACROSS UK

LONDON, UK - Dennis & Lavery, Bespoke and Collection Fine Jewellery, announces the formation of an exciting fundraising partnership with The Wayne Sleep Foundation to support talented young performers throughout the UK. This announcement was made at the launch of the inaugural Dennis & Lavery Fine Jewellery Collection, designed by Cindy Dennis Mangan, during London Fashion Week 2007. Inspired by how dance and theatre can bridge communities, Cindy and Wayne agreed that ten percent of the profits from The Prima Ballerina Collection would go towards supporting performing arts students to further their studies in theatre and dance.

In designing The Prima Ballerina Collection, Cindy was inspired by Darcey Bussell and the classical ballet Swan Lake, and designed the dancer pendant to encapsulate the fluidity of movement and passion of both the swan and the Prima Ballerina. The pendants are made from highly polished 18kt white, yellow, and rose gold. There are six versions of the dancer, with Prima Diva the signature piece in 18kt white gold, with her skirt pave-set with over sixty 0.01ct VS1 round brilliant diamonds.

Cindy Dennis Mangan, GIA Diamond Graduate and Fine Jewellery Designer, said: When I first established Dennis & Lavery Fine Jewellery my aim was find a way to give back to a younger generation through the performing arts community while creating modern romantic heirloom jewellery. So forming this partnership with The Wayne Sleep Foundation is absolutely a dream come true. I believe in the power of dance and performance to build character, heal trauma, and to bridge nations, therefore to help Wayne support talented young students is an investment in our future.

About The Wayne Sleep Foundation

The Wayne Sleep Foundation was registered as a charity on 15 July 1998, its aim being to raise funds to provide scholarships for talented students to further their training in all aspects of theatre and dance. The Wayne Sleep Dance Scholarship was formally launched on the 19 July 1998 at a gala event on Waynes fiftieth birthday.

Wayne launched the charity because he was often asked to give interviews about Princess Diana, since he had known her and performed with her on stage. Since the media often paid for these interviews, Wayne decided to use the payments to start the scholarship programme in recognition of the fact that Diana had always been an ardent supporter of the performing arts.

To date funding has come from performances that Wayne has both directed and appeared in, from patrons and donations from people who care about the future of gifted youngsters.
