Charity fund celebrates birthday with Michelin-starred raffle

PUBLISHED: 16:27 19 October 2012

Michelin-starred meals were up for grabs at a fundraising event last week that celebrated the fourth birthday of a fund set up to finance struggling Bromley charities.

Councillors and business leaders were at The Bromley Fund event at the Civic Centre where a raffle offered luxury prizes.

The fund hopes to reach £460,000 in order to secure match funding of £230,000 from the government.

Fund chairman, Richard Lane, said: “Small local voluntary organisations and charities can find it so difficult to raise the relatively small sums that they need individually to get their vitally important projects off the ground.

“We are committed to help them as much as we can.”

Members of community groups CarePlus and St Peter & St Paul Church explained how funding had allowed them to run projects housing once homeless people and offering befriending services for isolated older people.
