The sun is out and temperatures are rising, which can only mean one thing – Lunch on the Green!
Mix, mingle, and soak up the sun at Clapham & Collinge's annual summer networking and fundraising event in support of Break Charity on Wednesday 11th July. 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 Break Charity, during their 50th anniversary.
This year's event will feature many summer-themed activities and attractions including garden games, a selection of wines from TFW Fine Wines, delicious canapés from The Feed, summer mocktails from 7 Surrey Street, wine tasting with Eastern Financial Consultants, roulette with Kings & Queens Fun Casinos, beautiful floral displays from Libby Ferris Flowers and live music acts including Bill Downs, Lydia Lee and the Manhattan Husk Duo.
Louis Hilldrup-Boorman, Marketing Manager at Clapham & Collinge Solicitors said: ''Over the years Lunch on the Green has grown considerably and it's now our biggest event of the year. This year we are celebrating Lunch on the Green's 10th year, which coincides with Break's 50 year anniversary, so we're pulling out all of the stops to make this year's event the biggest on record. I have no doubt that we will also be joined by one or two Hares from the GoGoHare trail too!'
Break provides a diverse range of specialist residential and community based services for vulnerable young people in Norfolk, helping children and families reach their full potential and shape their own futures. We have supported Break for many years with our annual Lunch on the Green event and sponsorship of a GoGoGorilla, GoGoDragon and GoGoHare Sculpture. In 2016 we won 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 change young lives.
"Clapham & Collinge has supported Break for a number of years now, with their annual 'Lunch on the Green' event. Without the creativity and support from businesses like Clapham & Collinge, Break wouldn't be able to run the large events we do. We are proud to partner with them and look forward to working with them on projects in the future. Together we are changing young lives" said Martin Green, Fundraising Manager at Break.
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 for anyone in the know in business. We're delighted to be involved again, with all monies raised to change young lives in Norfolk"
