A great start to Swanley networking yesterday at the lovely HQ of We Are Beams charity. A combination of members and guests gathered to network and discuss all things business for 2020. As always, the We Are Beams team offered amazing hospitality with wonderful cakes and pastries provided by Jane Lindsey from Hummingbird Bakery.
We were fortunate to hear from the Chair of Trustees Garry Ratcliffe and a very touching speech from Mary Moore one of the parents who benefit from the services and care at We are Beams.
Julia Hussain, Corporate Fundraising Manager was on hand to encourage members to get involved with some of the fund-raising activities planned for 2020 and one of their past supporters Chris Fox from Fox Estates presented a cheque for £1840 raised by Chris at the Palma Zafira Run. Well done Chris!
If you would like to find out more about how you can engage with other business involved in fundraising for We are Beams and how you can plan your own personal or corporate fundraising goals please talk to Julia at Julia.Hussain@wearebeams.org.uk.
As usual we held a charity raffle in support of We are Beams and the lucky winner of a men’s grooming kit went to Nigel Whittaker from Pure B2B. Many participants took a tour of the facilities which really highlights the great work they do in supporting disabled children and their families.
We are pleased the Swanley networking is really gaining momentum with a wide range of Members and new guests attending each time. Why not come along and join us at our next meeting on the 18th March at the Howard Venue, kindly sponsored by Simon Morgan from HR Dept. Pre-booking available HERE.
