BPMA Christmas Lunch Returns
The BPMA were pleased to bring back the Christmas Lunch this year, returning to the Guoman Tower Hotel in London.
Over 100 guests arrived at our own private entrance for the drinks reception, enjoying a glass of bubbly overlooking the fabulous Tower Bridge.
The BPMA’s CEO Jon Birrell welcomed guests and allowed Stephen Fry to tell guests more about Mind, the mental health charity, before introducing BPMA Board member Neal Beagles to the stage for a game of Heads and Tails as the first fundraising activity of the event.
Jon commented “It was so wonderful to see so many of our members enjoying an end of year gathering and I would like to thank everyone for their generosity enabling us to raise lots of money for Mind Charity.”
Following the classic Christmas three course meal, Neal was back on stage for the raffle and a number of auctioned items. Over £2,000 worth of prizes were donated by members and the BPMA is very grateful to all those who sent in gifts.
The microphone then passed over to television’s Bob Mills who entertained us until the end of the meal, at which point everyone moved to the riverside bar for the rest of the evening.

The amount raised for Mind will be in the next issue of Product Media Magazine, along with lots of pics from the day!
