Banelec are a Made in the Midlands Gold Member
Our Breakfast Networking event and Macmillan Coffee Morning hosted on Friday 29th September raised a grand total of £1,450 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
The support received from our fellow members was amazing and we are very grateful for their donations.
Dudley South MP Mike Wood also attended the event to support local businesses and Macmillan. He did a short speech during the networking morning about manufacturing and exporting, and its importance to our local businesses. He even stuck around to enjoy a slice of cakes and bid in our sealed bids auction.
General Manager, Jennie Banner said; “We are really happy with the turnout, it was worth every minute of organising. We couldn’t have asked for better support from the local businesses and our suppliers.”
“It’s amazing to see how much people are willing to donate for such a great cause; people were very generous and it was great to see MP Mike Wood supporting the manufacturing industry in the area while helping out this amazing charity.”
We received donations for prizes from lots of local businesses, including; Full Throttle Raceway (Stourbridge), Halfpenny Green Vineyard, Harvester, Pure Gym, Black Country Living Museum, Green Duck Brewery, Bartec, David Lloyd, Gala Events, Wolverhampton Grand Theatre and Simmi’s Café (Brierley Hill).
We would like to thank all the lovely Made in the Midlands members that attended the event and came along to support Macmillan Cancer Support.
