Birmingham Settlement receive £600 cheque from the Gastro Card

10th May 2013

Director, Trevor Land hands over a cheque for £600 from the Gastro Card event at Opus Restaurant to our chosen charity Birmingham Settlement.

Comments from Martin Holcombe, Chief Executive, Birmingham Settlement.

Through our partnership with Gastro Card we have received valuable funds and networking opportunities which help to raise our profile in the wider community, for example, in March Gastro Card organised a networking and fundraising lunch at Opus Restaurant attended by more than 50 guests; and we also have on-going support through the sale of individual Gastro Cards from which members can elect to make an inclusive charitable donation of £2 when they purchase the Gastro Card.

Recently, Trevor Land, Director of Gastro Card, presented us with a cheque for £600 which will help us to continue to deliver vital services to those who need them most at a time of funding deficits and tighter budgets.

Fundraising and networking is a winning combination for Birmingham Settlement.
