This year’s Faversham House Group charity sale, organised by HousewaresLive.net, Housewares Magazine and DIY Week, was the biggest yet.
Takings from FHG employees for the industry charity Rainy Day Trust hit a new record: a staggering £2,421.75.
Products came from scores of suppliers across the housewares, hardware, DIY and garden markets. Some had been donated to the charity sale after being entered for this year’s Product of the Year Awards, and some were given by exhibitors at the Totally DIY exhibition in February.
“When we started unpacking for the sale, we rapidly got to the stage where we had to start putting stuff away again,” said Housewares and DIY Week publisher Colin Petty – who is also the current Rainy Day Trust president. “There was no way we were going to be able to fit everything into the Faversham House boardroom.”
The company is now planning a follow-up sale on the evening of Monday August 1.
