BHETA’s Exclusively Show raises thousands for RDT

BHETA’s Exclusively Show, the UK’s leading housewares, gift and small domestic electricals show, which took place on 13th and 14th June at The Business Design Centre, Islington gifted over £13,000 of product to industry charity, The Rainy Day Trust (RDT).

Exhibitors at the show were asked to donate products from their stands at the end of the two-day event for the charity to pass on to families in need or to sell and raise money. Housewares, gift, and small domestic electricals suppliers responded in style and a record five pallet loads of stock with a retail value of over £13,000 were given to RDT.

BHETA’s Chief Operating Officer and Show Chair, Will Jones said, “It was a pleasure to help RDT with the very good and much needed work it does for people in our industry. It was brilliant to see a steady stream of people dropping off boxes of stock – and the total raised is a tribute to all the companies and brands involved.”

Rainy Day Trust CEO, Bryan Clover commented, “The Exclusively Show is a tremendous event and to be chosen as the charity being supported this year was amazing. We are so grateful. The generosity of exhibitors and the support of show owner, BHETA was overwhelming. Much of the proceeds will be used to help families that are setting up home after a separation. We are also assisting Ukrainian refugees whose time with UK hosts is coming to an end after a year in the UK.”

“So many companies made generous donations to the Rainy Day Trust at the end of the show. In the end we filled five pallets! Incredible. Special thanks must go to Mapel, Tatay and Orthex who donated their entire stand! Also to Addis who donated pretty much all of theirs too. To everyone else that brought products to us – thank you! It will make a huge difference to the people in the housewares industry that we support.”

The Exclusively Show returns to The Business Design Centre on 11th & 12th June 2024 and more information about the event can be obtained from the BHETA Member Services Team on 0121 237 1130 or via the website
