Almost 300 #eventprofs attended the SITE GB Christmas Lunch last month, raising more than £15,000 for industry charity Meeting Needs through a charity raffle and auction.

The event, hosted by outgoing SITE GB president Chris Parnham, took place at The Leonardo Royal St Pauls, London on Monday 19th December.

SITE GB members and guests from the wider UK event industry enjoyed a drinks reception, lunch, and entertainment by Katrina from Katrina and The Waves, which was sponsored by MMGY Hills Balfour.

“The raffle and auction were a huge success thanks to the efforts of SITE. We are very grateful for their support. The event raised an incredible £15,070! That is enough to fully fund at least 3 projects,” said Margaret Mann, SITE GB Young Leader, and Meeting Needs Secretariat.

The auction included prizes donated by All About Flights, Destination Vancouver, MEP Business Solutions, Chewton Glen, Rosewood London, Pan Pacific London, Goose Live and many more.

Incoming president for 2023 Leigh Butterfield sent a video message from Sydney Australia, where she is spending the Christmas holidays, revealing plans to grow the chapter’s membership this year, and launch new working groups.
