Everybody’s favourite drinks charity, The Benevolent has raised a mammoth (and much needed) £25,500 at its silent auction.

Almost 70 items were up for grabs on the night, these included the likes of a private box at The Royal Albert Hall to see Cirque Du Soleil, a Michelin-starred experience at The Harrow at Little Bedwyn and VIP tickets to a match at Lord’s cricket ground.

The money raised will ensure The Benevolent continues to help our industry peers when they face difficult circumstances including ill health, financial hardship and personal crises.

‘This is another heart-warming example of members of our trade recognising the need to support this vibrant and highly effective trade charity and entering into the spirit of competitive bidding,’ chief executive, David Cox, said.

‘As a last initiative prior to my retirement, I am delighted that we have beaten our budget and I thank sincerely all the generous donors of auction lots and, of course the successful bidders.’

Earlier this year, the drinks charity launched a ‘game-changer’ helpline for the trade.
