We were delighted to be chosen as the charity to be support at Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster’s (BECBC) Business Awards 2018.
The celebration took place in November and the evening saw over 300 guests come out in force to support the businesses nominated for these prestigious awards.
Our Community Fundraising Coordinator, Michelle McGibbon, gave a brief presentation at the awards about the work we do to support unpaid carers in the area and dinner guests donated generously during the evening.
Incredibly this amount was then doubled through match funding by the main event sponsor, Sellafield Ltd.
Michelle said ‘I’d really like to express how grateful we are for the support that we have received from the Business Cluster and from Sellafield. We were astounded to find out that £6,051 had been raised from one evening alone. This money will go towards the continuation of the existing services which benefit young and adult carers in West Cumbria.’
The fundraising did not end there! As part of the Christmas Jumper day celebrations, BECBC also asked members to donate during the December Cluster meeting which raised an additional £324.55.
