retailTRUST Midsummer Ball

On Thursday 16th June, over 275 guests gathered at the beautiful Manchester Cathedral for the retailTRUST Midsummer Celebration. The Celebration bought together new and loyal supporters of the Trust for an a evening of entertainment and fundraising.

We celebrated some of the great work and achievements the industry, working in partnership with retailTRUST. The work of industry veteran and retailTRUST Trustee, Eddie Bentley, was also celebrated on the night. Eddie has always been a strong champion and ambassador for the industry – it is for this dedication and support that he has been inducted into our retailLEGENDS academy.

Guests were treated to a Drinks Reception followed by a delicious three course meal with wine, prepared by top chefs from Harvey Nichols. The night was hosted by renowned presenter Darren Proctor, and featured soulful and spectacular performances from The X-Factor’s Lauren Murray and Andrea Faustini.

An incredible £113,000 was raised on the night, enabling retailTRUST to continue delivering their key programmes and initiatives that support the wellbeing of all involved in retail.
