Thank you for supporting RTC 2018

Thank you to everyone who supported the retailTRUST Celebration 2018. Over 700 of the key influencers and decision makers in the industry helped raise a spectacular £410,000 (net of all costs) on the night. This money is already being put to work to create brighter futures for all involved across the spectrum of retail.

Held at the stunning Park Plaza Westminster Bridge and hosted by Gyles Brandreth, the evening was filled with glitz, glamour and generosity.

We showcased how we’ve changed lives through retailRIGHT, retailHUB and cottageHOMES. We also celebrated the retail sector’s contribution to our work over the last year.

During the evening, guests were entertained by acclaimed singing duo, Verity and Violet. The Faithettes (Paloma Faith’s backing singers) had hundreds of guests dancing to pop and soul covers into the early hours of the morning.

Auctioneer Richard Birtchnell facilitated the grand auction which was a big hit. We received four bids for our retailRIGHT pre-employment initiative meaning we will be able to help 160 more people get into work this year.

“A fabulous night where retailers came together to demonstrate yet again, how generous of spirit and wallet  they are in  support of  the Trust, the hard working people in the industry we serve, and those less fortunate than themselves. On behalf of the Trust I cannot begin to thank you enough for the humbling patronage you bestow upon us. Without you our work could not begin. Our enduring thanks!” Richard Boland, retailTRUST Chief Executive
