Hundreds of Yorkshire financiers will gather in Leeds on 21st March to celebrate the continued success of the region’s asset based lending community and to raise funds for the Friends Of Alfie Martin Charity that aims to improve transportation and care facilities for critically ill infants born in Yorkshire.

Three hundred and fifty lenders, bankers, corporate financiers and other professionals will pack the Ark Royal Ballroom at The Queens Hotel for the second Yorkshire Asset Based Lending Charity Dinner that will be hosted again this year by BBC Look North’s Harry Gration.

The event, that last year raised over £15,000 for the Leeds Children’s Hospital Appeal charity was launched in 2012 and was an immediate success.

Chris Silverwood, partner at Ethos Corporate Finance and organiser of the event, said:

The asset based lending community has been very active in business finance over the last year, and they have again welcomed the chance to get together, network and raise much needed funds for great causes.

This year’s event was a sell-out within days, and we have a great line-up of entertainment including Kevin Connelly of TV’s Dead Ringers fame, comedian Josh Daniels, and renowned tenor Victor Michael.

We are appealing to businesses to help with the auction of experiences to swell our total raised well beyond the £15,000 we achieved last year. So far the prizes donated include a kids training visit to the Castleford Tigers and a helicopter trip over Yorkshire, and any other ‘once in a lifetime experience’ prizes would be greatly appreciated and will help boost the coffers.

Businesses wishing to donate prizes to the auction of experiences can contact the organisers at cps@ethoscf.com or telephone 0113 3663087.
