Danbro does the numbers for Operation Orphan at Charity Ball

Contractor accountancy and payroll specialist Danbro has raised more than £6,800 for its nominated charity, Operation Orphan, after hosting a fundraising ball.

The event which was held at the Barton Grange Hotel, Preston, welcomed 140 guests for dinner, dancing and a charity auction.

Danbro managing director Damian Broughton said the event helped to raise much needed funds to assist with Operation Orphan’s international programme of projects.

He said: “As a family company, we feel extremely strongly about the work Operation Orphan does to provide a brighter future for orphans and vulnerable children. As well as supporting the charity with a comprehensive, free of charge accountancy service, we are keen to help raise its profile and further the work it does.

“The Charity Ball was an excellent way to do this and I am delighted with the amount of money raised on the evening.” Danbro head of new business operations, Fiona Hally, who organised the event said: “The charity ball was an evening of fun and entertainment with a very important focus. Everybody who attended learned a great deal about the excellent work Operation Orphan does to provide orphans with a caring environment, place to call home and access to education."
