On 7th December 2016 Marguerite Harrison of Marguerite – Interior Designer & Lorraine Lawrence of Prolink Property organised a networking charity event for their business colleagues. Many local businesses from Staffordshire and Derbyshire attended the event, supported by Hoar Cross Hall, to raise funds for the wonderful Midlands Air Ambulance charity.
Afternoon tea was enjoyed by the attendees in the gorgeous library of the beautifully historic Hoar Cross Hall.
Together with the tea, donations and raffle of prizes kindly given by local business, we are delighted to have raised £678!
Marguerite & Lorraine, together with Philip Levy of Open Formula Web Design Agency, held a cheque presentation event on July 12th 2017, with Katie West from Midland Air Ambulance. The event was a great opportunity for local business colleagues of Marguerite & Lorraine, and a group of Hoar Cross members, to network whilst enjoying Prosecco & some delicious canapés.
Another raffle was held, which together with the afternoon tickets from the business attendees and members of Hoar Cross Hall, raised a further £294.
The final cheque was presented to The Midland Air Ambulance on Friday 4th August 2017 at the Tatenhill airfield.
With close to £1,000 being raised, Marguerite & Lorraine aren’t stopping now! They will be organising another charity networking afternoon for November 29th. Watch this space.
Finally, thanks to everyone who donated prizes, to those that attended both days, and to Hoar Cross Hall for providing the Library for the event.
