It's GINA & MAY umbrellas of course! Since our launch, our vibrant designer brollies have been appearing in publications such as WHO, REAL LIVING and THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH, to name a few. Click on the Media section of our site to see our fabulous umbrellas shining brightly!
The GINA & MAY brand was officially launched on December 17 in owner/ creator, Gina Pollock’s, hometown of Gunnedah, N.S.W. The event arguably (!) brought some much needed rain to the drought stricken region as rainfall arrived the next morning and continued over the Christmas/ New Year period. Perhaps it was just a lovely coincidence!
The brand joined forces with local charity, Gunnedah PaediatRic and Maternity Support (PRAMS), with a percentage of sales from the launch benefitting the PRAMS organisation. The funds will go towards helping purchase specialised equipment, as well as refurbishing the paediatric ward. An umbrella packaged with an artwork by renowned Moree artist, Amanda Humphries, was also auctioned to spirited bidding.
GINA & MAY will be exhibiting at the upcoming Life Instyle Sydney show. For more details, please view their website at www.lifeinstyle.com.au and click on GINA & MAY within the exhibitors section of the February 2010 show. Alternatively, email Gina Pollock at email@example.com or phone +61 407 421 099.
