very successful draw held at Home Hardware Southwest’s Spring Trade Show raised £400 to be split equally between Cancer Research and The Rainy Day Trust.

Home Hardware Southwest extended its thanks to all members, suppliers and staff who generously contributed towards these charities.

The trade show, which took place on Tuesday, March 6 March at Westpoint Arena, Exeter, also saw Pyrex win ‘Best Display Stand’, earning Stephen Fennell a cash prize of £100, a certificate and a glass trophy. EPE (Mark Dunn and Mark Fox) received the runners up prize of £50.

140 exhibitors attended the show and the award was judged by an independent panel and presented by Home Hardware chairman David Adams. He said: “Pyrex had clearly worked hard on the presentation of their stand. It was extremely eye catching and very well-lit. Products were merchandised to a high standard, new lines and special trade show pricing were clearly displayed and as a retailer, I was instantly drawn to their stand.”
