The BOSS Business Supplies Charity (BBSC) Day last week raised more than £16,000 ($20,000), it has been announced.
This year’s event took place on 15 June at Belton Woods Hotel near Grantham, with almost 100 participants taking part in either the golf or spa activities. The day was rounded off with the traditional buffet dinner, raffle and auction, with around 110 people in attendance.
“Thanks to the amazing generosity of our sponsors – including our main event sponsor, EVO Group – our raffle and auction prize donors and our attendees, we are very confident that this year’s event has raised substantially more than even last year’s Charity Day,” said Charity Chair Martin Wilde.
He added: “With inflation at a record high, the cost of living is rising very significantly for the least well off in our society – exactly the people the BBSC is here to help. I’ve already had several of our beneficiaries writing to us explaining that their energy bills have substantially increased on those of previous years and asking if we can assist them. Thanks in part to the 2022 Charity Day, we can.”
Next year’s Charity Day has already been booked for 14 June 2023 at the same venue.
