Network Lunchtime Social – Supporting Local Charities in 2023

As we embark on a new year, we take a look back at our various Network Lunchtime Social events that have taken place in 2023.

Network Lunchtime Socials are hosted alongside Grafters and Hesketh Jones Construction Ltd and are aimed at businesses who work within the Property & Construction sector.

The events have now been running for 2 years and have grown to consistently attract over 50+ attendees at each meet up. Each event includes 15-20 minutes of networking in the bar/welcome area of the venue, followed by a delicious 2 course lunch with other guests in the restaurant/function room, and an opportunity to network afterwards. The events run from 12:30pm until 3pm at the Red Hall Hotel, Bury, allowing our guests plenty of time to make new connections and build those important business relationships. We have welcomed businesses from across Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Yorkshire and beyond – so there is always someone new to meet at each event.

Our Christmas event was our busiest lunch yet with 60 bookings received. A very joyful and festive gathering. Thank you to everyone who attended and donated items for Urban Outreach Bolton, who each year do a Christmas parcel drive to collect kitchen cupboard items for those who are struggling throughout the Bolton area.

A huge part of our events is dedicated to supporting local charities and the incredible work they do. By donating a proportion of the event ticket price for every guest that attends, we can collectively support these amazing causes. We have so far been able to support many in the area such as Speed of Sight, Bolton Destitute Animal Shelter, Trafford Carers Centre, Purple Heart Wishes and Nightsafe.

In 2023 we were delighted to have been able to support the following amazing charities:

A big thank you from us to all the wonderful attendees for making these events so successful. Just by attending the lunch, your contributions truly make a difference to our communities.
