INDUSTRYNEWS Driving their way to supporting a great cause »»THIS YEAR, THE CONSULTANCY HAS decided to join the MADi Fundraising team and dust off their driving gloves by taking part in the MADI Ball Rally. Originally set up in 2014 by Leon Day of Universal Arches, Dan Gill of Residence Collection and Gareth Mobley of Solidor, the fundraising was aimed to provide support to the Anthony Nolan Trust, one that is very close to the hearts of the three founders. Having been a company working in the industry for over 10 years, The Consultancy has seen the support and encouragement the glazing industry has offered to one another when partaking in fundraising events. Richie Thornton, Director of The Consultancy, said: “The MADi Ball Rally was something that we considered in its first year, and the money that was raised for the Anthony Nolan Trust was enough to make up our minds.” With an aim of raising more than the first years’ rally, which totaled at a stunning £130,000, the team is set to complete over 27.5 hours of driving, from England to Monaco, across three days. Richie continued: “Following a Modern Classics theme, myself and Paul will be representing The Consultancy in a MG MGB Roadster.” www.madifundraising.co.uk; www. theconsultancy.co.uk Prestigious Award Nomination »»INSIGHT DATA,THE SPECIALIST data supplier for the fenestration and construction industry, has been shortlisted for “Outstanding Data Provider of the Year” at the 2016 Database Marketing Awards.
