Brookfield Rose raises more than 25,000 at charity event
The Brookfield Rose Trust supports the work of The Outward Bound Trust, The Prince’s Trust and Action for Children Brookfield Rose’s chosen Charities of the Year for 2015.
Each year, all companies within the group donate a percentage of their annual profit as well as holding a Gala Dinner fundraiser. This year’s theme for the Gala Dinner, which took place at Manchester’s Lowry Hotel, was & lsquo;Viva Las Vegas’. A whole host of clients, industry experts and recruiters were in attendance and serenaded over a three-course meal by an Elvis Tribute, entertained to a raffle and charity auction, and given the opportunity to bid on prizes which included a six-day African safari, One Direction tickets and signed football shirts.
Sanders commented, “The event was a huge success and we are thrilled to announce that the night raised a total of £25,382.99 for the three charities supported by the Brookfield Rose Trust. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our colleagues, guests and speakers for their generosity and we look forward to hosting the event again next year”.
To date, Matthew Sanders and the Brookfield Rose group has donated, supported and been involved in countless charitable activities taking part in bike rides, marathons and car races around the world. Over the last few years, Sanders has completed a sponsored Olympic Bobsleigh track run in Norway, taken part in the Gumball Rally 3000 three times and cycled from Manchester to Paris, and Calais to Amsterdam.
“Fundraising is a practice close to my heart and these events are great fun,” continues Sanders, “but more importantly, the money raised will make a real difference to children and young people.”
