Former industry stalwart Efrem Brynin started the StrongMen charity following the tragic loss of his son during the war in Afghanistan. In 2019 SpecFinish spoke to Efrem about why he gave up his career at the frontline of the interiors sector to help tackle emotional and mental health issues brought about by bereavement.

Fast forward to now and the charity is in its fourth year. StrongMen seeks to provide situations where a group of men who have all suffered a bereavement can go away to a completely different environment, where physical activity is combined with the opportunity to talk and bond with others in the same group.

To help support the charity, this year StrongMen is hosting a black tie dinner event at the Mayfair Hotel in London. Tickets start from £250, and include a three-course dinner. If you are interested in supporting this charity, and event visit:
