NMBS Dinner Dance Raises £12,930 for CRASH and the Rainy Day Trust

CRASH is delighted to announce that the NMBS Dinner Dance raised £12,930 for CRASH and The Rainy Day Trust on Saturday 27th October 2018, in London.

The 55th annual Dinner Dance took place in the glamorous Great Room at London’s exclusive Grosvenor House Hotel, in Mayfair. Guests came from across NMBS’ merchant membership, joining with representatives from brand-leading building industry suppliers.

The evening brought together more than 1,200 people for a night of great entertainment, fine dining, and networking.

After dinner, NMBS Managing Director Chris Hayward revealed the winner of the prize draw, sponsored by Makita, with one guest receiving £1,000-worth of Apple products. Guests gave so generously through draw entries and table donations, raising £12,930 to be divided between CRASH and the Rainy Day Trust.

Commenting on the event, Chris Hayward thanked the NMBS team and everyone involved for their hard work in organising the Dinner Dance. He said:

“The annual Dinner Dance is a fantastic way for us to thank our members and suppliers for all their support throughout the year, and to bring people together from across the industry to network in a relaxed, social atmosphere. It’s great to see so many people together in one place, celebrating the successes of the independent merchant sector, and of the wider industry as a whole. I’d also like to thank all our guests and sponsors for their support in what was an incredible evening.”

Kate Marsh, Senior Partnership Manager at CRASH said:

‘‘A huge thank you to all at NMBS and their members and guests at the dinner for your generosity. Your support means CRASH can continue to create places that care for vulnerable people who are homeless or need end of life care in a hospice. CRASH charity simply couldn’t continue its work without the great support of the people and companies that attend the NMBS Gala Dinner.’’
