B&M, alongside Shaptor Capital, took part in the Inspired MIPIM Rally last week, driving from London to Cannes to raise money for BuildAid.

BuildAid provide specialist aid in the form of design expertise, cost planning and project management to enable the delivery of new build and reconstruction projects for people in need around the globe. They aim to deliver projects that are built to last, maximise on cost and last the community a lifetime.

The rally featured 11 cars and these were driven by 25 enthusiasts who work in the property industry. Starting in London, day one saw them through the Eurotunnel to the mainland and heading straight to Luxembourg, to be greeted by none other than Princess Tessy.

Day two saw the convoy head to Geneva, Switzerland and then straight onto Monaco on day three. On this final evening, an auction of special prizes was held to raise further money for the charity. The fourth and final day saw the group head into Cannes, just in time for the start of the conference.

Over £20,000 has been raised so far, with BuildAid to reveal the total raised in due course.
