A wonderful Christmas Ball!

The 5th of December 2019 will see the 84th Benevolent Society Ball take place at The St Johns Hotel, Solihull. The Benevolent Society Committee are highly delighted that Jewellery & Watch have once again agreed to be this year’s Headline Sponsor.

The Benevolent Society Ball attracts guests from the Jewellery,  Giftware, Surface Engineering and Travelgoods and Accessories trades. 

Over 400 trade guests attend this annual black tie event with many companies using it as the perfect occasion to celebrate Christmas with staff and their colleagues in the trade. The Benevolent Society Committee are intending to again make this year’s Ball a very special and truly festive Christmas party and rumours abound in the Trade that a large gentleman with a white beard and a red suit may appear in person at the Ball once again!

The Committee are pleased to once again welcome the highly prestigious NAJ Jewellery Awards as an important part of their Charity Ball.

A charity auction will be conducted by David Doyle of Jewellery Brokers and Diamonds Please, the Society's Vice Chairman, and if last year’s event is anything to go by then over £35,000 could be raised on the evening for charity. Lots donated for the auction so far include: a fine dining lunch with wine for 10 people at The Birmingham Assay Office, a fantastic full days Clay Pigeon Shooting for 10 people followed by dinner, sponsored by T H March & Co, a superb unique and one off piece of silverware kindly manufactured and donated by Andrew Macgowan one of the UK’s leading Silversmiths. More exciting lots and sponsors will be confirmed shortly…..
