News Image
Miller Fluid Heads has awarded an LP '54 Classic Tripod to raffle winner and freelance camera operator Peter Baughan, GTC, IOV for the 2014 KITPLUS Tour, a tv-bay event, recently held a raffle to raise money for children's charity Dreamflight.

"I couldn't believe my luck. Miller makes quality camera support solutions, so it was quite humbling to know that my ticket had been chosen for something as prestigious as the LP '54," Mr Baughan said.

Not available for purchase, only 40 LP '54s were produced for worldwide distribution. Each is numbered and comes with its own certificate of authentication and wooden encasement, which is crafted from the finest Australian Blackwood.

"We were delighted to associate with tv-bay to help ensure that this year's road show raffle was a success," says Mark Clementson, managing director, Miller. "The Dreamflight organisation is an incredible charity, committed in its efforts to help children with medical disabilities live life to its fullest. We were happy to help raise money for the cause and thank all those who participated. Congratulations to Peter for winning the LP '54 and on behalf of everyone at Miller, we hope you enjoy."

The LP '54 raffle donations generated £1,040 ($1,660), which was donated to registered UK charity Dreamflight. Each year, Dreamflight works to take more than 100 deserving children from across the United Kingdom aboard a chartered Boeing 747 to Orlando, Florida.

"The charity is delighted, as they currently had a campaign going in hopes of raising enough money to send an additional 12 children on this year's trip to Florida," says Simon Tillyer, tv-bay editor. "Throughout the years, we've supported our fair share of charities, but to watch the video recordings of this once in a lifetime opportunity that Dreamflight grants to these children is priceless, and we are thrilled to be able to help Dreamflight make these trips a reality."
