Charity has always been close to my heart. From a very young age when l first started business back in 1975 and was in the fashion trade, l used to do fashion shows and always supported local charities.
As time went on l got more and more involved as l did more and more events, so we always supported charities, eventually l realised l should do charity events as l always believe in giving people a good night out, and felt this was a good way of also giving back, so my world of events was born.

There are many ways of raising money. When l was manufacturing sauces l would give a penny a jar to cancer Bacup, this was a really good way of accumulating funds quickly.
