James Bond at Craigsplates

Our very own Craig from Craigsplates was asked to be the the Daniel Craig 'look-a-like' at the opening of the James Bond film 'Casino Royale' in Ipswich. (Well the real look-alike could not make it!, so the look-nothing-alike stepped in). It was all for one very good cause, to raise money for The East Anglian Air Ambulance. The Event organiser - Clive Thomas from Anglia IT raised over 21,000 on the night. Anglia IT who are a successful IT recruitment company based in Needham Market, have held a number of charity events and are one of East Anglian Air Ambulance corporate sponsors (well done Clive).


Hundreds of glamorous guests were at Cardinal Park in Ipswich for the first chance to see Daniel Craig take on the mantle of Bond in Casino Royale, just one day after the Queen attended the film's worldwide premiere in London.

Top of the guest list at the charity event - organised by the Suffolk branch of the Institute of Directors in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance - was real-life Bond girl Mollie Peters.

Mollie starred on celluloid alongside Sean Connery in Thunderball, but here in Ipswich was rubbing shoulders with other stars including EastEnders actors Bill Treacher and Ian Lavender, and Ipswich Town's Fabian Wilnis and Simon Milton.


To do our bit in helping Anglia IT raise money for the The East Anglian Air Ambulance we will donate 10.00 for every Casino Royale number plate we sell.
