Busy Buttons CORE Charity is honoured to have ’The Platinum Orb’ a community art installation displayed on The Long Walk as part of the Windsor Platinum Jubilee celebrations. This is a 10 ft tall spherical art installation created using 70 bicycle wheels representing Her Majesty’s 70 years of service to our country and the Commonwealth. The national flowers of the 54 Commonwealth member countries made with recycled materials will adorn the wheels.
The Charity hopes to raise an awareness of the amazing possibilities of recycling and reflect Her Majesty’s concern about climate change with this project.
The Platinum Orb will creatively and inclusively bring together thousands of members from our community in a wonderful tribute and celebration of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II ’s Platinum Jubilee, thanks to the support of Arts Council England, The National Lottery Community Fund, Berkshire Community Foundation , The Prince Philip Trust Fund, Windsor Yards, Royal Collection Trust Learning Team at Windsor Castle
