Let’s get Mooving for MK’s 50th Birthday!

Milton Keynes is synonymous for its concrete cows and what better way to celebrate our 50th birthday than to parade 50 life-size cows at well-known landmarks around the city.

Herd About MK are inviting the 50 new residents to graze all across Milton Keynes, bringing the biggest arts and charity project ever to the city raising funds for Willen Hospice, MK Community Foundation and MK Dons SET.

Mark Lancaster MP, met with local businessmen and project promoters Rob Broekhuizen and Simeon Jackson, to discuss their exciting concept in more detail and to see how he might be able to offer his support. Simeon and Rob explained that they are successfully working towards their goal of securing company sponsorship for 50 cows and already over half have been rounded up. Once in their new pasture the staff from each business will brand, paint and decorate their cow in their own very unique style. Marshall Amplification are planning to turn their cow into a working amp, which may even be used for an MK50 concert at the MK Bowl!

High profile company names include, Woburn Abbey, Fossil Group, Santander and Taylor Wimpey. More local success stories, Michael Graham Estate Agents & Saxon Bridge Motor Company have taken the opportunity to celebrate the great place we thrive in. Accountancy firms PwC & Grant Thornton are proud to be involved as well. All sponsors are looking forward to the moovellous yearlong programme of events throughout 2017, culminating in a 500-person Gala Dinner for which a table of 10 is included in the sponsorship cost.

Mark commented, “This is clearly going to be a fun project which will have an incredible visual impact and I can’t wait to see all the innovative designs.  What a great way to celebrate our 50th birthday, our new colourful herd is going to attract many visitors to MK over the next twelve months.”
