The kbb Events WaterAid Campaign received a record contribution, after £2,000 was raised during the BMA's Annual Bathroom Conference, which took place in November 2011.
"Never let it be said that the BMA does not rise to a challenge!” noted the association’s Chief Executive Yvonne Orgill as she presented the cheque to kbb Brand Director Andrew Vaughan. “I am extremely proud of the support we received from our members and the hard work the BMA staff did during the Conference in support of the kbb Event's campaign."
The campaign started with a Charity Golf Tournament organised by the BMA, EKB Business magazine, and kbb News that attracted 26 players prepared to brave the elements and take on the championship-standard golf course at Heythrop Park on the eve of Conference. The tournament was followed by a networking dinner and prize giving that featured a charity raffle and auction, in addition to the presentation of the golf trophies, hosted by the Association's Guest of Honour Clive Tyldesley - ITV's leading sports commentator.
"Only one word can sum up the BMA's contribution to our WaterAid campaign," added Andrew Vaughan, "and that word is: FANTASTIC!” “All the thanks go to the BMA and its extremely generous sponsors and supporters. 884 million people in the world do not having access to safe water, so as a result of the BMA’s contribution, we are well on our way to making a huge difference in transforming the lives of those in the poorest communities.”
