Products entered for The Housewares Innovation Awards 2018 have helped raise much-needed funds for industry charity the Rainy Day Trust.
Many housewares companies that submitted product entries to The Housewares Innovation Awards 2018 chose not to have them returned but instead agreed to donate them to a sale at Datateam Business Media – the Awards organiser and publisher of HousewaresLive.net and ‘Housewares Magazine’.
The sale raised a total of £2,450 from Datateam Business Media staff, with all monies raised going to the charity.
Datateam Business Media extends its thanks to all those companies that donated products to support this very worthy cause.
