Norfolk Chamber raises over £3,000 for West Norfolk based charities
On Monday 11 February Norfolk Chamber of Commerce presented three charities based in King’s Lynn with £3,440 in total donations from a charity event last year.
In November last year, Norfolk Chamber of Commerce held their annual West Norfolk President’s Charity Dinner at the Town Hall in King’s Lynn.
The black-tie event was held in aid of the Mayor of King’s Lynn, Nick Daubney’s favoured charity, The Purfleet Trust, as well Festival Too and King’s Lynn Night Shelter.
Over 60 local business people attended the event and were privileged to hear from the guest speaker, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, explorer, fundraiser, author and public speaker.
Local businesses donated some amazing raffle prizes and on the night, the raffle alone raised £560 for the nominated charities. The total of the money raised is still being finalised, but is expected to exceed £2,500.
The West Norfolk President, Michael Baldwin presented the three charities with cheques last Monday.
