BMA’s Annual Conference to raise funds for Band of Builders

The Bathroom Manufacturers Association (BMA) has partnered with the Band of Builders charity in 2024, seeking to raise funds at their Annual Conference. The BMA’s conference takes place on 16th and 17th September at the Queens Hotel, Leeds, and is its members’ highlight of the year. The conference theme focuses on ‘building growth' and features high-profile speakers and specific workshops.

By choosing the Band of Builders as the charity partner, the BMA says it wishes to recognise the charity’s crucial work in helping construction industry members in their hour of need. The charity began in 2016 when a landscape gardener, Addam Smith, called on volunteers to help renovate the garden of a friend and fellow tradesman, Keith Ellick, who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. After years of successful projects with a combined delivery value of over £1m, the charity provides practical, financial and wellbeing support to members of the construction sector and their families who face adversity due to illness, injury or life-changing circumstances.

Tom Reynolds, chief executive of the BMA, said: “We are delighted that Band of Builders will be our conference charity partner for 2024. The bathroom manufacturing sector relies heavily on the talent and hard work of those in construction, and we want to help those who now need support.”

Band of Builders CEO Gavin Crane said: “We are grateful to have the support of the BMA and their members at their Annual Conference. Only with the kindness and support of continued fundraising can we hope to support our friends in the construction sector and make a difference.”
