The event has been arranged by Macmillan Cancer Support who are urging people to get involved and help beat last year’s fund raising total of £20 million, which was a record amount.
Betts Metal Sales, a family run business since 1760, will be fundraising on their premises throughout the week and on Friday 26th September all staff will be participating by dressing up as their chosen British Icon to celebrate ‘The Best of British’.
Betts Metal Sales is a member of the Stephen Betts Group. The original family business, specialising in smelting and refining bullion, was founded in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter at the dawn of the industrial revolution in 1760.
Now with its ninth consecutive generation in the business, the Betts family has been directly associated with the recovery of precious metals and the jewellery industry for nearly a quarter of a millennium.
