Businesswomen get chance to shine at charity Bling Fling event


A group of local businesswomen are organising a glittering event to raise funds for Huddersfield-based Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

The “Bling Fling” will take place at the Arches, a chic converted mill venue in Dean Clough, Halifax, on Friday, May 4, from noon until 4pm, where guests will be entertained by soul Diva Shorell Jade. After that, there will be more time to sparkle and dance the night away as the fun continues with an after-party until late.

During the afternoon, there will be chance to win a unique item of diamond jewellery which is being custom-made for the event by sponsors, Franklyns Jewellers of Halifax.

One of the organisers, Vicki Davenport, Joint Managing Director of The Pink Link distribution company in Huddersfield said: “When you mention a businesswomen’s fundraising lunch, a rather staid affair with ladies dressed in their twinset and pearls might spring to mind!  But that’s exactly the opposite of what’s going on here. It’s just bling and fling with chance to let your hair down, forget about the pressures of work for a few hours and have a fantastic time. Everyone is welcome – whether you’re in business or not, just come along, make some new friends, join in the fun, and help a very worthwhile cause at the same time”.

Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice is there to give vital support to children with life-shortening conditions and their families from across West Yorkshire.
