RH Amar managing director Rob Amar said: “Donating to charitable causes has always been an integral part of who we are.

“So we could think of no better way to celebrate our 75th anniversary than by increasing our charitable giving in a way that engages our stakeholders.”

RH Amar Chairman Henry Amar, who will conduct the anniversary draw with son Rob, adds: “2020 is our 75th anniversary year and, whilst it hasn’t felt like the right time to celebrate, it most definitely is the right time to live up to the values we have held since 1945.
