Las Vegas Evening Raises £2,500 for Greggs Charity
A Las Vegas style charity evening held by Newcastle city centre recruitment agency Solutions Recruitment raised a grand total of £2813.70 for the Greggs Foundation Breakfast Club.
Transforming the Biscuit Factory into a glamourous Las Vegas casino, the evening saw guests enjoy informal dining, top-class entertainment from singers and showgirls, and even provided the opportunity to try their hand at the roulette and blackjack tables.
A selection of amazing prizes including flights to Abu Dhabi, a golf day at Close House and football merchandise were also up for grabs.
Charlie Grabham, operations director at Solutions Recruitment, said: “We had a fantastic evening and were able to raise more than £2,500 for the Greggs Foundation Breakfast Club – an extremely deserving charity.
“In addition to that, the great array of people we had in the room meant that the foundation was able to forge new corporate partnerships with a number of the region’s top businesses and several have already committed to invest in breakfast clubs around the region.
“We’re delighted to have been able to host this event and hope that everyone involved enjoyed the evening as much as we did.”
Solutions Recruitment has selected the Greggs Foundation Breakfast Club as its nominated charity, and will continue to support the organisation going forward.
Lynne Hindmarch, Breakfast Club manager added: “We’re extremely grateful to Solutions for putting on such a fantastic event, and for the ongoing support they provide.
“We supply breakfasts to more than 26,500 children across the country every day but the demand for breakfast clubs is still high and we couldn’t provide them without the support of our partners.
“To date, we have 73 partners who generously cover the running costs of 178 breakfast clubs. With more partners we can support even more children in need.”
