A ladies charity dinner raised £1350 for the Lingen Davies to support local people affected by cancer. Over 90 ladies attended the event last November at the Hadley Park House Hotel, Telford.
£750 was donated to the charity from the Hamper Raffle and an additional £600 was provided by Santander with match funding from Shrewsbury Community Hub Director Sharmila Klair and Relationships Manager Jessica Pelling,
The event also raised a further £1500 for the Shropshire Autism Hub making a grand total of £2850.
Kim Gilmour of Connect Consultancy, who organised the event said: “It was a fantastic effort all round, one of the best we have had in terms of numbers attending and money raised. We had a brilliant response from the ladies who come every year and a good number of new visitors.
“The two charities were nominated by our ladies and are both worthy local causes serving very different but equally important communities.”
Naomi Atkin, Chief Executive Officer of Lingen Davies said:
“We are very grateful for all the support from Kim and all the ladies who came along to the Posh Frocks Dinner. It was a lovely evening and raised a fabulous amount of money for two great local causes. Lingen Davies Cancer Fund has been supporting people with cancer in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales since 1979 and it is due to support like this that we are able to do what we do. Thank you very much all!”
Next year’s event will take place on November 6, 2020 at Hadley Park House Hotel to keep up to date join https://www.facebook.com/groups/poshfrockevents/.
