Arthur Price has announced that it’s Perfect Christmas event in November has raised £1760 for We Love Lichfield. The event was a roaring success with over 140 people attending the special evening event and through raffle ticket sales and a donation by Arthur Price of £10 during November 2017 for every £100 spend in its Lichfield shop, the event raised a large amount for The Fund.
The event was hosted by Arthur Price in association with other Lichfield businesses who all staged Christmas demonstrations. These included Le Reve Bar of Bird Street, local celebrity private chef Simon Smith, Worth Brothers of Beacon Street, Jemma’s Floral Displays of Tamworth Street, Catherine’s Cakes on Burntwood and Robert Broad Travel.
Arthur Price CEO Simon Price, Patron of the We Love Lichfield Fund said: “Another £1760 in the pot means we have more money to give away to voluntary groups across the district. I’d like to thank all the business who supported the event and who together have raised such a fantastic figure. It really does show that the District of Lichfield is a great place to live and work”
Launched in 2011, the We Love Lichfield Fund considers applications from local groups across the District in need twice a year. Companies and individuals are welcomed to donate or fund-raise for the Fund. All money is invested through a permanent endowment fund registered by charity the Community Foundation For Staffordshire on behalf of We Love Lichfield in line with charity commission guidelines. The interest and dividends earned on the invested money is then distributed by the ‘We Love Lichfield Fund’ as small grants across the district. The beauty of this model is that it will provide a source of on-going funding that can be used for many years to come. For more information visit: welovelichfield.com
