TWO businesses are supporting fundraising for a local hospice by joining an upcoming event as headline sponsors.

Cooplands and Asquith & Co will be supporting the Saint Catherine's special black tie dinner and concert featuring Scarborough’s very own Cloughton Rat Pack, taking place at Scarborough Spa’s Grand Hall on Saturday November 13.

The hospice said event is set to raise thousands of pounds for patient care – and this will be maximised due to the support of the event sponsors, who both said they were keen to get involved in helping a local charity after what has been a very difficult 18 months.

Tracy Calcraft, fundraising and marketing director at Saint Catherine’s, said: “We are delighted that as face-to-face events begin to start up again, we have been able to count on the support of our wonderful community - and businesses are a hugely important part of that.

“Everyone has been through such a challenging time during the pandemic, and to have the backing of Cooplands and Asquith & Co at this major event will mean that we are raising as much as possible for patient care."

Caroline Jones, customer and marketing director at Cooplands said that the firm are "thrilled" to be supporting the hospice with such a "spectacular" event.

Meanwhile, managing director of Asquith and Co, Mark Asquith, said: “We’re very excited to be jointly sponsoring such a fantastic event.

“Saint Catherine’s is well known for being there to support members of our community during some of the most difficult times any family can face. We are proud to be able to contribute and raise awareness of what is undoubtedly one of the most vital and cherished services on the East Coast.”

Table seats for the black-tie event including dinner are now sold out. However, concert-only tickets are now on sale priced at £15.
