Bobby Davro, the comedian, actor and TV personality, will host a charity auction at the Builders Merchants Federation Awards Dinner, part of the BMF’s annual members’ conference, on 19 September.
Davro’s versatility has kept him in the public eye throughout a career spanning almost four decades. He hosted popular Saturday night shows on both ITV and BBC in the 1980s and 1990s, including Bobby Davro on the Box, Public Enemy Number One and Winner Takes All. In the 2000s he played the loveable rogue Vinnie Monks in Eastenders and has appeared in numerous stage plays, musicals and in pantomime as well as taking part in reality TV shows including Dancing on Ice and Celebrity Big Brother.
In addition to celebrating the achievements of young people in the building material supply industry, and the companies that support their development, the Awards Dinner is one of the BMF’s major charity fundraising events each year. Bobby Davro will host a live charity auction raising money to be shared equally between the BMF’s of the year, Variety – the Children’s Charity, and Samaritans.
He will also present the prizes for the BMF annual Golf Tournament and to the winners of this year’s other social event, a Five-a-Side Football match.
The BMF Members Annual Conference and Awards Dinner takes place on 19 September at St George’s Park, Burton on Trent, the home of England’s national football teams. The BMF’s annual Golf Tournament will be held on the previous day, 18 September at the newly-opened JCB Golf and Country Club.
The BMF thanks Pavestone for sponsoring Davro’s appearance, as well as our Members’ Conference headline sponsor, Encon Insulation, and Marsh Industries and JCB, sponsors of the Awards Dinner and Golf Tournament.
