Local organisation Elfrida Rathbone has been given a unique opportunity to celebrate their work with a reception at the House of Lords in November.
They will be hosted by Baroness Sheila Hollins to use the House of Lords, however in order to bring this event to fruition they and their partner organisations still need some support to meet the non-venue costs.
This is what they say about the event:
We are working with three other sister Rathbone organisations to showcase the achievements of use beneficiaries and celebrate the work of our staff and volunteers. We are currently fundraising for the full costs of the event. We would be grateful for any contributions to enable us to put on this event and would be happy to hear from your business if you feel you can help us in anyway.
