The Howarth Timber Group continues to celebrate its 175th anniversary in style with a dinner for the great and good of the British building industry.

More than 200 guests, including suppliers and industry leaders, attended the dinner at the Manchester Marriott Victoria and Albert Hotel, and were treated to a fantastic night of entertainment.

Comedians Rod Woodward and Kevin Connolly delivered lively sets, while brothers Nicholas and Andrew Howarth both gave insightful speeches about the history of the company and what the future holds for it.

In his speech, Nicholas Howarth was quick to praise Howarth Timber Group’s suppliers and the role they play in the ongoing success of the business. He said: “We recognise the importance of having strong and mutually beneficial relationships with our suppliers. We value suppliers that enable us to offer good quality and ethical products to our customers, at competitive prices and with high levels of customer service.”

The evening also saw more than £5,500 raised for Howarth Timber Group’s partner charity, Caudwell Children, through a silent raffle and generous donations from guests.
