UK Jewellery Awards 2019 raises in excess of £3400 for Benevolent Society

The UK Jewellery Awards (UKJA) 2019, held in London on July 3, raised over £3400 for its chosen charity, the British Jewellery and Giftware Federation Benevolent Society.

Each year the UKJA in conjunction with its official supporter the National Association of Jewellers (NAJ), raises money for the Benevolent Society, asking guests at the awards to donate to this very worthy cause which helps those in the trade at both the start and the end of their careers through education bursaries and charitable grants and gifts.

This year donations were made to the Benevolent Society via a charity casino competition where the top prize for the winner of the casino was two tickets to the sold-out Benevolent Society dinner at the Tower of London in 2020 plus overnight hotel accommodation.

Further donations were made to the charity by awards guests giving money to have a selfie taken with UKJA host Larry Lamb.

A total of over £3400 was raised on the night which will assist the Benevolent Society in continuing the valuable work it does for the jewellery trade.

David Doyle president of the NAJ and vice-chair of the Benevolent Society said: “We cannot thank the UKJA and its guests enough for raising this money.”
