Carpenters Group announces sponsorship of Bolan's Shoes world-premiere

09 August 2023

Carpenters Group are delighted to announce their sponsorship of the world-premiere of Bolan’s Shoes, produced by local independent film company Buffalo Dragon.

The film features music by the pioneers of the glam rock movement of the 1970s, Marc Bolan’s T-Rex, and is designed as a celebration of that decade’s culture. However, much like Marc Bolan’s own legacy, who died in a road accident in 1977, its glitter is dimmed by the tragic repercussions of a deadly road accident and the question of what might have been. The story celebrates the enduring legacy of childhood experiences and the deep bonds of sibling love. 

Donna Scully, Carpenters Group Director, said:

“When we were approached by Liverpool-based, Buffalo Dragon about being headline sponsor for the premier of the wonderful movie ‘Bolan’s Shoes’ and found out they would be supporting ‘Sean’s Place’, it was a no-brainer for John and I. It ticks so many boxes for us with its huge connection to Liverpool, its support of the brilliant work Debbie and the team at Sean’s Place do to support mental health in Liverpool and supporting the arts which has taken a huge hit with the pandemic.

We’ve worked with Sean’s Place since Debbie set it up during the pandemic so it’s wonderful to see them get the platform and support from this project.  We at Carpenters Group are very much looking forward to being involved.”

Sean’s Place is a local charity dedicated to supporting men’s mental health and offers a safe place for men to get social support and therapeutic support in a non-clinical and non-judgemental setting.

Terri Dwyer, Buffalo Dragon Co-owner and Bolan’s Shoes Producer, said:

“Sometimes you meet people and you just know straight away that you’re all on the same page in trying to achieve the same thing and do something really special. This was the feeling I got when I meet Donna Scully and her team at Carpenters Group. We are all delighted to be working with them.”
