The ball was held at the Brighton Grand, with over 150 people in attendance. Through auction, raffle and games on the evening, an impressive £10,000 was raised for the two charities.
Barry Hilton, Managing Director of Mercuri International UK said, “We all had a fantastic evening. The feedback has been exceptional. We would like to thank all of our guests, all the organizations and individuals who supported us with raffle and auction prizes, our band Kalabash and everyone at The Grand Hotel, Brighton who helped make it such a memorable evening in honour of our much loved colleague Trevor. The money raised will go to support two fantastic charities.”
The ball, in honour of Trevor Meadway, started with an introduction from Barry and was followed by a three course dinner and a wide variety of entertainment throughout the evening. The raffle and auction offered guests opportunities to win an array of fantastic prizes, including sports events, a five star luxury weekend, a team building sailing experience and a signed cricket bat by the 2016 England Cricket team.
Janine Lancaster owner of Maximize Your Time, said: “Rockinghorse and the BHF are amazing charities and to be able to raise money for them, while enjoying a fabulous evening, is a great honour.”
About Trevor Meadway
Trevor Meadway worked as a consultant for Mercuri International between September 1998 and March 2015. Trevor died suddenly from Coronary heart disease at the age of 53. Barry Hilton, Managing Director, Mercuri International (UK) Ltd said: “Trevor made a huge contribution to the company and won our annual performance award on several occasions. “He was tremendously popular with both colleagues and clients, and we miss his cheery, can do spirit. His engine never idled and he would always go the extra mile to help you out. “He was a devoted family man and his life revolved around his children and wife, Nic. In typical Trevor style he used the time he had left to pursue his passions and fundraise for charities. “Trevor demanded a lot from life but gave a huge amount to others in return. That’s why his friends and colleagues want to honour his memory and do a little of what Trevor liked to do, and support causes which make life better for those of us he left behind.”
