The Hope Supper - BCMS 30th Anniversary Charity Fundraiser

The Hope Supper - Charity Dinner & Auction Event

The Hope Supper

2019 is BCMS 30th birthday – and we’re planning a rather special party.

This is no ordinary black-tie do. We’re not simply celebrating 30 years of successful trading as a family-owned M&A advisor. Indeed the night isn’t really about BCMS at all.

Instead, we will be shining a light on the charitable causes we support as a business.

As a guest at the event, you’ll enjoy fine dining, five-star hospitality, live entertainment from singer-songwriter Kerri Watt, who recently opened for Celine Dion, and keynote speech from Chris Moon MBE, whose remarkable life story is one of consistently overcoming incredible odds. Most importantly, the money you’ll help raise on the night will change lives for the better, permanently.

The Hope Supper at Draper’s Hall, London, on 13 November 2019 will support our nominated charity, The Poor and Needy Benefit Trust. In India, the Trust has provided financial aid for the construction of an orphanage and a three-storey school, which provides education to 500 children from the poorest families in the area – people for whom even a basic education is usually unavailable.

Our 30th year has already seen BCMS send a team to India to work with the orphanage and school and see first-hand the astonishing, positive impact the Trust has made on people’s lives.

Much has been done, yes - but there is still much more to do. At Draper’s Hall in November, we have the goal of raising £75,000 for the Trust in a single night. We know this is an ambitious target. But if 30 years in business has taught us one thing, it's that if you don’t try, you don’t succeed.

Chris knows exactly what it takes to overcome adversity and supposed limitations. He was blown up in Africa clearing landmines for a charity and lost his lower arm and leg. Less than a year after leaving hospital he completed the London Marathon and now runs the world's toughest ultra-marathons. He's also one of the few westerners to have survived being taken prisoner by the Khmer Rouge Guerrillas.
