Members of The Business Network Central & East Lancashire have raised £1,761 at the networking organisation’s annual Christmas event.
The event held at Stanley House included a raffle and auction for prizes donated by members, with all proceeds going to charity members Advocacy Focus, Age UK Lancashire and Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
The Business Network Central & East Lancashire is a membership organisation, bringing together business leaders and decisionmakers in a structured lunch-based format that aims to help businesses connect and provide introductions for each other.
Its monthly lunchtime events include an optional morning seminar, delivered by specialists from within the group on a range of topics from business strategy, growth and succession planning to personal development and mental health in the workplace.
As well as the raffle and auction, the December event also included entertainment from group member, and part-time professional singer and entertainer, Bonnie-Anne Phillips of Community Foundation for Lancashire.
The Business Network Central & East Lancashire director Karen Tems said: “The Sparkly Christmas Event has become something of a fixture and charity fundraiser. As well as the raffle, members are ‘fined’ £1 each if they don’t come to the event wearing something sparkly.
“We’d like to thanks all our members who contributed prizes and everyone who took part to help us raise funds for our valued charity members.”
