Thousands raised for Club Doncaster Foundation
Business leaders and their guests attending the prestigious Doncaster Chamber Business Awards 2017 raised £4,890 for Club Doncaster Foundation.
Local firms donated products, tickets and experiences for the charity raffle which was held on the night alongside a charity silent auction.
“Club Doncaster Foundation were absolutely delighted to have been chosen as the nominated charity at the 2017 Doncaster Business Awards. The money raised during the evening will benefit our programmes that address mental health and social isolation in Doncaster. It will also significantly contribute towards activities and opportunities for the most vulnerable and hard to reach children and young people across the borough. On behalf of everyone involved in our programmes and all the team at Club Doncaster Foundation – Thank You!” says Jim Lord, chief executive, Club Doncaster Foundation.
Prizes included vouchers for family and corporate hospitality events and experiences donated by Doncaster Chamber member businesses including the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, DCLT, Doncaster Racecourse, Doncaster Sheffield Airport and hotels.
“The Doncaster Chamber Business Awards night was a true celebration of local business at its best. This amazing amount raised for Club Doncaster Foundation is a true example of how Doncaster businesses are working together to support each other and Doncaster’s local economy,” says Amy Symon, Membership & Business Services Executive, Doncaster Chamber.
