Agents, architects, surveyors, developers, property consultants, construction companies and interior designers were among the guests at the first ever Monster Mash at the Metro Bar, Birmingham. The event was the brainchild of Tim Andrews, managing director of signs and graphics experts Hollywood Monster.
“I’m always keen to support charities wherever possible so it was great to see so many people together in a fun environment, talking business and donating to good causes. We raised around £3,000 for Cure Leukaemia for Kids and Help Harry Help Others, two causes that are close to my heart,” said Tim. Among the Midlands celebrities attending were BBC presenters Phil Upton and Jo Malin.
The evening also saw the unveiling of the 7-in-Seven marathon charity cycle ride from Zurich in Switzerland to Birmingham, which will take place in September. Cyclists taking part will travel through seven countries in seven days, covering 700 miles.
The event, organized by Tim Andrews and Phil Upton with support from friends and colleagues, aims to raise £250,000 for Help harry Help Others and Cure Leukaemia for Kids. Monster Mash guests were invited to hop on an exercise bike to get a taste of the massive task that the cyclists face.
