Penton Media Group donates thousands to NI Chest Heart & Stroke
Following a hugely successful gala awards night for the Neighbourhood Retailer, thousands of pounds were raised for the event’s charity partner.
The Neighbourhood Retailer Gala Awards dinner was held on Friday 20th October this year, with Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke the chosen charity partner for the 2023 event.
Hundreds of guests enjoyed the occasion, the biggest night in the industry calendar, with host Donna Traynor ensuring the proceedings all went smoothly at the Crowne Plaza Belfast.
Following a night which was enjoyed by all, a fantastic total of £3077 was raised for NICHS, with Regina Cox, High Value Partnerships Manager at the charity subsequently presented with a cheque by Bill Penton, MD of Penton Media Group.
Bill Penton said he was delighted to present this substantial amount to the charity.
“I am thrilled to donate this significant sum to this Northern Ireland charity, enabling them to support those affected by chest, heart and stroke illnesses and their families,” said Bill.
“We are thankful to all those who contributed at the gala awards night to this total and are already looking forward to next year’s event.”
Leading local health charity Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke (NICHS) was delighted to have been nominated as the beneficiary of our annual Northern Ireland Neighbourhood Retailer Awards, which raised an incredible amount of over £3,000 for their work caring for local people suffering from chest, heart and stroke conditions, funding health education programmes in schools, community groups and workplaces and investing in research for the prevention of these illnesses in future generations.
As almost 90% of all their work is only thanks to public donations, NICHS would like to express their sincerest thanks for the generosity of our guests at the spectacular event.
