Loughborough University’s conference arm imago celebrated raising over £3k for two charities at a special Christmas lunch for 25 guests from the Twenty Twenty and Minnie’s Friends charities at its Burleigh Court venue, 3 December.
During the course of 2015, imago raised £3,022.05 for the two charities, with fundraising activities including imago chief executive Kay England running a half marathon.
Minnie’s Friends is a drop-in centre, which provides for vulnerable people over the age of 18, while Twenty Twenty helps disadvantaged young people to develop self-belief, self-worth and motivation whilst achieving academic qualifications and learning work ready skills that help them to find and keep good jobs.
Liam Clamp, marketing manager at imago, said: “The lunch was a great way to celebrate the festive season with our charity partners. The money used to host the event would have otherwise been used to send Christmas cards, but we think this was a more worthwhile way to contribute to the local community and share it with people we have worked closely with over the last 12 months.”
