What do Shane Warne, the French Government, the Queen of England and the Pope have in common? They’ve all been presented with platters, plaques or trays and awards prepared, engraved and built by Brighton Trophy Centre
Owners Sandra and Geoff Gogler have made trophies, plaques and all sorts of awards for anyone from the local tennis club to the Pope in their 30 plus years of business, and they put as much love into the simplest of designs as they do with the finest engraved silver platters.
Sandra and Geoff, who owned a trophy store at Murray Bridge before moving to Brighton, have seen some massive changes in their industry over the decades, including the arrival of computers and lazer printing to the now-popular acrylic and glass awards. They’ll help with anything – any style and anything that needs engraving.
One of their most unique items was a statue sent to the Pope from the people of Penola, celebrating Mary McKillop being canonised. They also built a platter on a stand for Shane Warne, marking his 300th wicket. Geoff then engraved the name of every one of the 300 cricketers whose scalp Warney claimed. They’ve also helped with a platter for the Queen from the Adelaide Pipes and Drums, and a plaque for the French Government.
No two days are the same at the Brighton Trophy Centre. Everyone loves being recognised, and there’s nothing better than a beautiful trophy to send straight to the pool room.
