On December the 1st 2016, Honeypot were proud to host our second ever Festive Dinner at the Chester Grosvenor Hotel, raising over £130,000- an absolutely astounding sum. This followed after our first ever Festive Dinner last year managed to raise £100,000 towards a new Playbus to provide outreach support for children from the North West, West Midlands and Wales.
All the guests enjoyed a lovely evening with a three course dinner, entertainment coming courtesy of magician Iain Moran, and speeches from our Chief Executive Simmi Woodwal, Trustee Carl Leighton-Pope and Young Ambassador Freddie Porter.
With the opening of our second Honeypot House, Honeypot Pen y Bryn, in mid-Wales, the kindness and generosity of our guests has been vital to our work with young carers and vulnerable children in the new locations we’re open to. Thank you to everyone who attended, with a very special thanks to Richard Porter and the Solent Group, without whom the event would not have been possible.
