CULSHAW RAISES A SMILE AT THE DENMAUR HIPPODOME GALA EVENING

Jon Culshaw, renowned impressionist and leading TV comedian was the evening’s star attraction at the recent Denmaur Revive gala event which was held at the Hippodrome, off Leicester Square in Central London.

Culshaw was in attendance to help celebrate the re-launch of the leading recycled paper brand, Revive. His illustrious CV includes Spitting Image, Dead Ringers, Comic Relief and Commercial Breakdown amongst others.  He is also a keen amateur astronomer. In November 2007 and December 2008, Culshaw appeared on The Sky at Night impersonating a young Sir Patrick Moore.

During Culshaw’s gala evening set, he brought the house down with his amazing repertoire of the good, the bad, the famous and indeed infamous, which impersonated by himself included special guest appearances from Barack Obama, Nelson Mandela, George W Bush, John Major, Les Dawson and Alan Carr.

Following Culshaw, Hippodrome owner Simon Thomas, gave a unique perspective on his family’s ownership of the casino. Having acquired the venue in 2007, the Leicester born businessman has spent nearly £50m turning what had been described as a tired old Grade II listed building into an opulent, faithfully restored casino. Today, the attraction is housed in one of the most iconic buildings in London.

Earlier in the day, leading UK environmentalist Jonathon Porritt lead an all-star cast for an environmental seminar focused on discussing the ramifications for business and non-profit organizations alike in relation to the recent COP21 climate change seminar which was held in Paris last December.

Revive is a range of recycled papers available in 9 options both for the commercial print and magazine sectors, in 4 finishes, and a grammage range from 54-350gsm, offered with FREE carbon balancing from the World Land Trust via CarbonCo in the UK.

Speaking of the day’s events, Nick Gee, Denmaur Independent Papers’ Commercial Director commented, “I’d like to thank our customers, seminar speakers, our hosts and all of our guests for delivering a first class launch at a first class venue. This type of information exchange is a key element of our value added service which we want Denmaur to be able to deliver on an ongoing basis to customers and partners alike. COP21 provides us all with a vision of how businesses will have to change for the future. The fact that Denmaur is able to help bring that message to our industry sector is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to providing practical, everyday sustainable solutions.”

About COP21

Nearly 200 countries met in Paris in December 2015 and came to an agreement on the need to cut greenhouse gas emissions is regarded by many observers as an achievement in itself and is being hailed as "historic".

The deal unites all the world's nations in a single agreement on tackling climate change for the first time in history.

What are the key elements?

  • To keep global temperatures "well below" 2.0C (3.6F) above pre-industrial times and "endeavour to limit" them even more, to 1.5C
  • To limit the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by human activity to the same levels that trees, soil and oceans can absorb naturally, beginning at some point between 2050 and 2100
  • To review each country's contribution to cutting emissions every five years so they scale up to the challenge
  • For rich countries to help poorer nations by providing "climate finance" to adapt to climate change and switch to renewable energy.

Developing countries say they need financial and technological help to leapfrog fossil fuels and move straight to renewables.

Currently they have been promised US $100bn (£67bn) a year by 2020 - not as much as many countries would like.
