Fundraising and Fizz for charity

21 September 2021

Fundraising Longhurst
This month, Gather sponsored our clients Longhurst Group, with a champagne drinks reception to raise money for two fantastic causes; Harry’s Pals and MIND.

Held at the beautiful 20 stories restaurant in Manchester, which boasts stunning views across the city, it was one of the first events many have attended post-COVID and a great opportunity to meet in person ahead of the Housing 21 Conference.

The evening began with the drinks reception, and was followed by a three-course meal and charity auction. The lots were highly sought after and included unique items such as a luxury brand ‘Paccioni’ watch, a ‘Learn to Fly’ pilot experience in Coventry, and weekend retreats, as well as spa days, golf experiences and personal training among many other generous donations.

We were delighted that the event resulted in an impressive £12,000 being raised for Harry’s Pals – a charity set up to provide emotional support to parents who have severely ill or disabled children and MIND, a mental health charity.
