Teaming up with other local businesses and services is often a great way for charities to expand their reach and raise awareness of their work.
One of Birmingham’s oldest charities, Birmingham Settlement is therefore delighted that Gastro Card and OPUS Restaurant in Birmingham have come together to help raise funds at a charity lunch on 12th March. The lunch is the first event of its kind and will include a three course meal with a glass of wine and coffee. In addition to great food and wines, diners will also be able to enjoy a talk from Jayne Bradley, Director at Kitchen School, Birmingham – a not-for-profit centre for food skills and cookery; and take part in a raffle, prizes to include a ‘chocolate’ hamper!.
Director of Gastro Card, Trevor Land, says, “As a trustee for The Birmingham Settlement, I’m only too well aware of the great work they do. They are one of our nominated charities and every purchase of the Gastro Card provides an opportunity for a donation. “We are delighted to be able to extend our support with this event and are hoping that many of our members and the local business community will join us.” The event promises to be full of fun, as well as raising funds that will go towards community projects and support for some of the most vulnerable citizens of Birmingham. It takes place from 12:30pm on 12th March 2013 at OPUS Restaurant. Tickets cost £30.
