PBS Launch Event – Thursday 24th October 2019

On the evening of Thursday 24th October we hosted our Proud Business Supporter Club Launch Event in The Sky Lounge at Mattioli Woods PLC (one of our founding gold members).

Members and guests came along to hear what a difference members are making, including from Charity Link Trustee and Editor of the Leicester Mercury, Mr George Oliver.

Thanks to Mattioli Woods PLC for kindly providing the venue for our launch event, to Lynn and the team at Bawdon Lodge Farm – the home of Burleighs Gin – who provided gin and non-alcoholic cocktails on the night, and to the The Great Adamos and Rosanna Monachello who provided entertainment.
