Other fund-raising initiatives at the the dinner include a raffle sponsored by Decco, with prizes including the latest Ipods and other popular hi-tech gadgets.

"The 2008 dinner was a huge success, and raised more than £25,000 for the Rainy Day Trust," said Mr Leboff. "The industry has always been very supportive of our work, and we are looking forward to another evening of successful fund raising."

The 2009 DIY Charity Gala Dinner is on Monday January 19, at the Royal Garden Hotel in London.

The charity dinner includes a champagne reception, three-course meal with wine, and a full evening's entertainment starring top comedian Ed Byrne. Ticket prices are £120 each, or £95 for exhibitors at Totally DIY, Totally Tools and Totally Secure. To book, call Penashe on 020 8386 4408 or email
