As our third event draws closer, the committee is busy planning what we hope to be one of the most spectacular events of the year.
But what makes our charity lunch so special, is the amount of money raised for our beneficiaries, enabling them to carry out the amazing work that they do in our area, and most importantly helping young people. Last year we raised a staggering £22,000 which was donated to Forget Me Not Childrens Hospice and Orangebox Young People’s Centre.
For the event to raise the money we do, we create opportunities for our guests, businesses and associates to donate. We do this in a variety of formats, our most popular method of raising additional funds is through an auction. Last year the auction contributed 26% of the total amount raised. It also adds a fun element to our event when there’s some competition in the room!
All auction prizes are donated prior and we rely heavily on our contacts to enable us to bring such exciting opportunities.
This year we are on the lookout for prizes. Do you have any unwanted gifts, maybe a trip somewhere that you can no longer attend?
We would be most grateful of any donation, as they say, every little helps! If you think you can help, please get in touch with us on [email protected]
