​Summer networking at its finest: Lunch on the Green 2017

​Summer networking at its finest: Lunch on the Green 2017

Mix, mingle, and soak up the sun at Clapham & Collinge's annual summer networking and fundraising event in support of Break Charity. With plenty of local businesses exhibiting across all sectors, many offering special deals and delights, this fabulous fundraising event is a great opportunity to network with the Norfolk business community whilst supporting a fantastic Norfolk charity.

Break is a children's charity which provides a diverse range of specialist residential and community based services for vulnerable young people in Norfolk. We have supported Break for many years with our annual Lunch on the Green event, sponsorship of a GoGoGorilla and GoGoDragon Sculpture. Last year, we won the award for the 'Silver Lining Long Term Support Award', a prestigious award to recognise a group, individual or organisation that has supported Break for a period of more than five years; making a significant input into the charity in general and the fundraising team specifically to enable growth and sustainability, helping the charity to #changeyounglives.

Over the years, Lunch on the Green has grown considerably and it's our biggest event of the year. Last year we had over 40 businesses exhibit, just under 300 attendees and raised £5,700…we're hoping to top that this year. Taking place from 12.00 – 4.00pm, the extended duration has allowed us to incorporate additional summer themed activities into the event and you're guaranteed to have great fun! Join us for garden games with Right Angle events, roulette with Kings & Queens Fun Casino's, beautiful floral displays from Libby Ferris Flowers, delightful wines from Reno wines, delicious nibbles from 7 Surrey Street and much, much more! What better way to spend a summer's afternoon than networking in a fabulous setting over drinks with local businesses across all sectors.

Sarah Bunn, Senior Fundraising Officer at Break Charity said "Lunch on the Green is a wonderful summer networking event which has become a Norwich annual diary date fro anyone in the know in business. We're delighed to be involved again, with all monies raised to change young lives in Norfolk"

"We are delighted to be exhibiting again at Lunch On The Green, it's such a great networking opportunity to meet our local business community as well as raising funds for Norfolk Charity Break. We always look forward to exhibiting at Lunch On The Green - its a fabulous chance to meet over lunchtime for some excellent networking, food and drink and super raffle prizes.

"One of the highlight events of our year is Lunch on the Green, a great occasion to mix with fellow business people and all for a great charity, Break! Buy Local Norfolk are proud to support our members Clapham & Collinge and Break for such an important event!" Julie Hunt, Buy Local Norfolk.

" Break has been working with Clapham & Collinge for a number of years now, not only have we been their Charity of the year, we have grown Lunch on the Green together, its also given us a chance to partner them for the GoGoGorillas, Dragons and now the GoGoHares in 2018. Without the creativity and support from business's like Clapham & Collinge, Break wouldn't be able to run the large events we do. We are proud to partner them and look forward to working with them on new and exciting projects for the future. Together we are changing young lives" Martin Green, Break.
