Our best retailTRUST Celebration yet raises over £1 million to continue improving the wellbeing of all involved in retail!
Highlights included showstopping performances from Revelation Avenue and DJ Benny Blanco as well as a fascinating look at what we achieved in 2015 thanks to YOUR support.
Soulful and spectacular...
The star-studded event took place in the heart of the historic Old Billingsgate, showcasing a very British ’London’s Calling’ theme - which highlighted the iconic features and culture of our unique city, emphasising why it’s one of the world’s hottest retail destinations.
The night was hosted by renowned presenter Dave Berry, and featured soulful and spectacular performances from Revelation Avenue, Alien Uncovered and DJ Benny Blanco. The event brought together new and loyal supporters of the Trust to show their support and generosity for their industry and to all who dedicate their lives to it.
Celebrating our successes in partnership with YOU
Almost a thousand guests were present, with the evening raising vital funds for the Charity and it’s wellbeing services.
We celebrated some of the great work and achievements the industry, working in partnership with retailTRUST achieved over the last 12 months, such as the success of its retailRIGHT employment programmes, creating opportunity for hundreds of disadvantaged young people and the creation of the retailCURe Credit Union, offering affordable borrowing services to members – showing that when the industry comes together for the common good, great things can happen!
This year, our guests also welcomed the 'Unsung Heroes' of retailTRUST, those who work tirelessely behind the scenes to support our cottageHOMES residents, deliver counselling and wellbeing advice to current retail employees and inspire the next generation with our education programmes.
“Our second great Celebration at Billingsgate, showcased the successes of 2015 to almost a thousand Patrons, supporters and sponsors. It was fantastic to see some of our ‘unsung heroes’ welcomed so graciously at the event as well as the thanks to our benefactors from some of the beneficiaries. The fantastic night was underpinned by real people giving real life stories demonstrating the great impact the TRUST has and raised over £1 million to ensure we further grow that impact in 2016.“
