Social Raises £5k for Forever Manchester | Davis Blank Furniss

A business networking group which Davis Blank Furniss is involved in has pulled together to arrange a festive fundraiser for a local charity.

The event, organised by The Social, an invitation-only networking group for those in the property & construction sectors, took place at the Castlefield Rooms in Manchester and raised thousands for their charity partner Forever Manchester.

Forever Manchester raises and distributes money to support local people, groups and grass-root charities throughout Greater Manchester.

Nick Massey, Chief Executive of Forever Manchester, spoke at the event and said: “Without funding the groups and projects we support would simply cease to exist. The generous donations we receive mean we can support local communities now and forever.”

The charity dinner was attended by 130 business people, including representatives from our firms as well as other sponsors Innov8 Development Solutions, Clarke Nicklin, Spacezero, Bell Munro. Eentertainment was provided by Manchester Soul singer Charlie Cooper, who went on to support Jools Holland the following evening!

In total they managed to collect over £5000 through ticket sales, a raffle and silent auction.

Top prizes came from the likes of Revolucion de Cuba, hosts of the regular networking events, who offered a meal and cocktail evening for 4 people, and Innov8 Development Solutions who sourced signed football memorabilia and football experiences.

Excellent experience start to finish – always very responsive to any queries and the turnaround on the property I was buying was very quick, even in the busy time leading up to stamp duty deadline. Jenny was always very helpful and went above and beyond to close on a short timescale.

Ben Armitage

“Very approachable, practical solutions to problems, but most of all very responsive which I personally think is very important because if you need help, you need it quickly, or at least to know someone is looking at it for you”.

Joanne Rowe, Finance Director, Greater Manchester Chamber

“Always able to contact, very approachable, friendly and professional”

Nives Feely, JAM Recruitment

“I believe I have been able to establish a professional working relationship with everyone I have come into contact. Importantly, I sense the relationships which have been established give me the confidence that I can make contact with Davis Blank Furniss at any time and on any matter. I would also like to express my thanks to the very impressive “gatekeepers” who work in reception, not only for making me very welcome, but also for their professionalism”

Bill Pryke, CEO, Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors

“Thank you for your efficient and friendly help throughout this process. We have had it easy but your approach has been part of that”.

Robert Amsbury (Conveyancing Client)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for the ongoing support and assistance the firm has offered to our parents over the years. I hope also that we may be able to call on you if necessary in the future.”

Valerie Fisher (Probate Client)

“Jo always provides great service, understands our needs and delivers on her promises. Our needs are relatively simple but the complexity arises out of the volume of work and short time frames, Jo always delivers.”

Peter Fernandez, Corporate Director at Royal Bank of Scotland

“A big thank you to all who dealt with my wife’s claim… We would not hesitate to recommend Davis Blank Furniss to anyone that may be in a situation like we have been…”

Anon (Personal Injury client)

“Before putting my case in Kirsty (Morbey)’s capable hands I’ve met a couple of other solicitors. None of them listen to me as intently as Kirsty and showed me as much empathy and understanding as she did. Simultaneously she was able to look at my case from legal perspective, explain all the options and follow each of our meetings with written summary of the discussed matters (in timely manner). Her advice was invaluable and led me to successfully ending the case matter (hopeful for good). I’m forever grateful for he work and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for reliable, knowledgeable and committed solicitor”.
