High demand and a new headline sponsorship agreement has led The Benevolent Society to expand the capacity of its upcoming candlelit dinner.

The organisation has announced that The Giftware Association will be the headline sponsor for The Benevolent Society’s Annual Sponsors’ Dinner 2018.

The event attracts guests from the jewellery trade, The Giftware Association and other member organisations of the British Allied Trades Federation.

The Giftware Association will headline the event alongside a long list of sponsors which include Charles Green & Co, Facets PR, Hockley Mint and Jeweller Solutions.

The Benevolent Society, a charitable society of the British Allied Trades Federation, financially assists individuals that have worked within the giftware, jewellery, surface engineering, travel goods and fashion accessories industries. The society also works to help individuals starting or progressing their careers in these industries through bursaries to help with their studies.

The GA represents companies from across the gift and home industry, manufacturers, designers, wholesalers, importers, exporters, retailers (independents, multiples and online) – from sole traders to major PLCs, offering them help and support to help them make money, save money and save time by offering a wide selection of services and support.

The Benevolent Society financially assists individuals that have worked within the jewellery industry and those looking to get into the jewellery industry through bursaries. Proceeds from the dinner will help the charity to continue its work.

The candlelit dinner is taking place on Thursday 14th June, with a drinks reception.
