Awards Night Recognises and Gives Back

The BPMA presented the new look BPMA awards event at Whittlebury Hall, following the BPMA Show at Silverstone. Around 250 guests from the promotional merchandise industry got together for a great evening of fun, networking and recognition. The evening was compered by director general Gordon Glenister.

A big part of the event involved the Promotional Products Week chosen charity, Pancreatic Cancer UK. A lively quiz and a charity auction managed to raise £5,989 for the charity. Pushpinder Hill from PCUK commented: “We are thrilled to bits and hope the BPMA can reach its goal of £10,000 by the end of the week.”

The winner of the auction Andy Thorne had a poignant reason for supporting having lost his father to the disease.

He said: “Pancreatic Cancer is an awful disease. Seven years ago I watched it first-hand destroy my Dad until it took his life at 63. I was going to do a skydive this year to raise funds but my plans got stopped when I busted my leg. So winning the auction was my way of remembering my hero and a great man, who I miss every day and wished could see the success of Outstanding Branding. Anyone near me last night would have seen my tears, it was emotional as it brought back all the memories and sadness.”
