The Bling Fling charity businesswomen’s lunch is back again in 2020 raising money for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice – and this time with a Vintage theme.

Next year’s event takes place on Friday, 1st May, at The Arches in Dean Clough, Halifax and with the 75th anniversary of VE day falling the week after, it was decided that the Vintage theme would be a great way to incorporate this into the celebrations.

The Bling Fling is a charity ladies’ lunch with a difference.  Guests will spend the day having the opportunity to win spectacular prizes in a multitude of ways before dancing the night away to live music.

For anyone hoping to get tickets they have, unfortunately, already missed the boat as the event sold out in just a week. However, there are still ways that people can get involved. “The Bling Fling needs you!” … Organisers are looking for businesses to sponsor the event.

There are many ways in which sponsors can give their support, from being the Headline Sponsor, to taking out an advert in the event brochure. There is even the opportunity for you to create your own Bling Sponsorship pack to share your suggestions and support in a way that works for you. Sponsoring the Bling Fling is a great way for people to get their business in front of 300 businesswomen.

Head of the Bling Fling Committee Vicki Davenport said: “We are so excited to be back for a third year. The event has always received great feedback and we can’t believe how quickly it sold out. Not only is the event a great chance for businesswomen to let their hair down but it’s also a fantastic way of raising money for a good cause.

“Forget Me Not do amazing work each year. However, without funds they can’t continue to do this. We feel privileged to be able to hold this event each year and raise money for them. But we need you to get involved! Businesses who sponsor the event help to make it the great success that it is.”

The Floral Bling Fling raised an amazing amount of £22,000 at the 2019 lunch and in 2018 the Diamond Bling Fling raised £17,750. In 2020 the Bling Fling is hoping to beat the amount raised once again.

The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, based in Huddersfield, supports families whose children have life-shortening illnesses. They need to raise £4 million a year to continue to care for the more than 500 families they currently look after.
