#PHEXGives raises £1,200 for The Ben Kinsella Trust

Published:  14 December, 2017

Visitors to PHEX Chelsea last month helped to raise £1,200 for knife crime charity The Ben Kinsella Trust.

As part of the #PHEXGives launch this autumn at the PHEX Chelsea event, we teamed up with Chelsea Football Club to give away a club shirt signed by the team.

The raffle was open to visitors and exhibitors alike throughout the two days of the event, with all donations going direct to The Ben Kinsella Trust.

With an unprecedented level of prizes, competitions and unique show offers available to our visitors, it was an extremely busy event, with attendance over 11% up on last year’s show. With three collection points available for the raffle; registration desk, Anton’s stand and @pbplumber skills area; there was a high level of interest in the prize and the Ben Kinsella Trust throughout the event.

The winner of the Chelsea shirt was Myles Callagahan. He said that Father Christmas would be delivering the shirt to his six year-old nephew Casper, who is a loyal Chelsea fan.

Patrick Green, Chief Executive of The Ben Kinsella Trust, said: "PHEX Chelsea was a great occasion for us, it was wonderful to meet the visitors and exhibitors.

"The Chelsea FC shirt raffle was a great success raising £1,200 for the Trust. This has allowed us to run three anti-knife crime workshops for 90 young people starting in January.

"Our thanks to everyone who bought a ticket and supported our important work."
