Cheshire Sportswomans’ Lunch Raises £12K for Melanoma UK

On Thursday 18th May 2023, more than 300 people attended the inaugural Cheshire Sportswomans’ Lunch, raising an incredible £12k for nominated charity, Melanoma UK.

Guests enjoyed a fantastic three-course meal at Chester Racecourse, followed by a fascinating talk by Manchester City and England goalkeeper, Karen Bardsley. After the Lioness shared stories of her playing career and life after professional football, the event continued with musical entertainment and fundraising raffles.

Bathgate Business Finance BDM, Chris McLoughlin, said: “We are completely overwhelmed by the response to the event and the money raised for Melanoma UK is fantastic. We would like to thank all of our sponsors and everyone who attended. Next year’s event is already being planned and we look forward to making it a regular feature in Cheshire’s social calendar..”

The event was sponsored by Bathgate Business Finance, Bibby Financial Services, HM3 Legal, Mercer & Associates Wealth Management, The Uncommon Practice, Handlesbanken, Champion Accountants, Allianz and Reward Finance Group. Special thanks are extended to all those who provided goody bag gifts and raffle prizes.

The event will return to Chester Racecourse next year on Thursday 16th May 2024 – don’t forget to mark it in your diaries!
