Bristol businesses are backing the Lord Mayor’s Children’s Appeal to raise money for some of the city’s most disadvantaged children.

The Lord Mayor’s Gift Gala is one of a number of events held in aid of the Appeal that runs through the year to raise money for clothes, gifts and food vouchers for 1,650 children in most need at Christmas.

This year the popular event will be held at Ashton Gate Stadium for the first time and is being supported by many of last year’s business sponsors as well as new names.

Specialist car dealer Rybrook are once again Platinum sponsor with GWR, Ashford’s LLP, Cliftons Estate Agents and, this year, Soitron UK, giving their support as Gold sponsors.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car are once again sponsoring the Gift Gala Auction while Moon Consulting are balloon sponsor.

Also new this year is Spire Healthcare who are sponsoring the entertainment and Burston Cook, who are backing a film that will explain the work of the Appeal.

The charity has been raising money for local children for nearly 100 years.

The dinner is also supported by Barclays Bank with its pound for pound scheme and the company’s volunteer fundraising team members.

The Lord Mayor of Bristol, Cllr Jeff Lovell, comments: “This event could not not take place without the generous support of all our sponsors and we thank them for making it possible.

“They join us in making a real difference to literally hundreds of children. The funds we raise mean they have a little of what many of us take for granted at Christmas.”
