Bespoke Tailors’ Benevolent Association festival dinner and auction, held at the Merchant Taylors’ Hall on 7th February.
Particular thanks should be made to this year’s Appeal Chairman, Anthony Rowland of Henry Poole, Jason Isaacs, guest speaker and the Association’s chairman, Patrick Bunting of Dormeuil.
Formed from a merger of the British tailoring industry’s two oldest and most revered charities – the Master Tailors’ Benevolent Association (est. 1887) and the Tailors’ Benevolent Institute (est. 1861) – the association serves to aid and award grants where necessary to anyone who has worked in British tailoring, at any level, for a period of ten years or more. Its annual grants currently support over 60 beneficiaries.
The association has in the region of 400 members, including tailors, woollen merchants and those from associated trades and suppliers. @merchanttaylorshall @btbafundraising @therealjasonisaacs #savilerow #charity - 5 days ago
