The Blackburn Incorporated Law Association (BiLA) held its annual dinner on Friday the 1st of February 2019 with the help of some of the team here at Farleys. The event took place at Northcote at the Rovers in Blackburn and brought together over 160 legal professionals from across the region.
A live band provided the entertainment to guests while they enjoyed a delicious dinner mingled with old friends and reflected on the past year.
Each year, as well as offering a chance to socialise, the BiLA dinner has a more serious goal; to raise as much as we can for their chosen charity. This year’s chosen charity was Rosemere Cancer Foundation who support world class cancer treatment in Lancashire.
We are now pleased to announce that, following a final count by Rosemere, 2019’s BiLA annual dinner has raised £1,445.00!
Antonia Love, partner at Farleys Solicitors commented,
“It is truly fantastic that we managed to raise so much money for such a worthwhile cause. We know that without charitable donations such as these, Rosemere is not able to achieve all it does for those in our region who need their services most. This is particularly important as Rosemere are currently trying to raise £842,000 for the Ribblesdale Ward at Royal Preston Hospital. The BiLA dinner was such a success. All involved are already looking forward to the next one!”
Dan Hill, Head of Fundraising at Rosemere said,
“To once again be supported by such an established and prestigious group like the BiLA is an honour for Rosemere. The monies raised by everyone’s generosity on the evening will make a big difference for local cancer patients by helping us to support the delivery of world class cancer treatment to patients from across Lancashire and South Cumbria.”
