The 2021 Banchory Bangle was inspired by our ginkgo trees and their falling leaves, their wonderful colours and such varying shapes as they fall to the ground. Our natural world is so important for children’s well-being and health of future generations.

Dr Malcolm Appleby, Artist and Engraver

The Banchory Bangle is designed by prominent Perthshire artist and engraver, Dr Malcolm Appleby MBE FRSE and raffled annually by the Children 1st Deeside Committee.

While there is only one bangle cast in 18ct red gold, there will be copies made for sale in sterling silver and bronze. Last year’s Antlers & Rowan bangle raised over £10,000 for Children 1st. Should you wish to donate scrap gold, silver or platinum, Children 1st would be very grateful, however small the gift.

The 2021 Bangles and their creator!
