Our “Uncork & Unwind” Charity Wine Tasting Was a Huge Success

This entry was posted in News on by .

On Thursday 20th September, We welcomed more than 70 guests from businesses across Pendle and East Lancashire to an evening of fundraising, fine wine and food at the beautifully restored Tubbs of Colne.

£1720 was raised for Pendleside Hospice throughout the evening as part of our Corporate Challenge initiative, from a combination of ticket sales, a raffle and a fantastic auction of signed football shirts and other sporting prizes. This brings our current fundraising total to over an incredible £4000 – with more donations rolling in every day.

A Manchester United shirt and Burnley Shirt were signed by their first teams and both auctioned on the evening thanks to Michael Phelan who sourced these especially for the Uncork and Unwind event.

Four ball golfing experiences at Nelson Golf Club and Formby Hall Golf Club were also offered as prizes, sponsored by the Business Team at O2 Burnley and Lloyds of Colne.

“The event was such a roaring success that we hope to plan a similar event in the coming years! We would like to thank all of our corporate sponsors for their donations and prizes as we could not have organised such a successful evening without their support and generosity. We’d also like to thank Tubbs of Colne for hosting us in their beautiful venue. We’re thrilled that we’ve managed to raise so much for such an important and well-loved local charity.”
