Emery Johnson Astills and Hope Against Cancer

On the 4th June 2015 Emery Johnson Astills teamed up with College Court, Leicester to host an event to raise money for Hope Against Cancer.

Hope Against Cancer is a charity was founded in 2002 by Allison Wilson. It is a Leicestershire and Rutland based charity that raises money to help fund research into many different cancers with a hope to improving cancer treatment for everyone.  Emery Johnson Astills are proud to be corporately involved to help raise money for this charity that is local to us and helps such a good cause.

The event took place at College Court, Leicester and was a summer BBQ. College Court provided a brilliant selection of BBQ foods and a refreshing selection of drinks as well as a beautiful location. Luck was also on side as the sun was shining so guests could enjoy the BBQ outdoors. The BBQ gave professionals from different areas to come together over food and drinks to network and make new connections. The BBQ was a great success and everyone who attended commented on how well the event had worked.

There was entertainment throughout the BBQ with live music from Camilla Kent who took part in the X-Factor and also a raffle that everyone got involved in which raised a massive £233! We would like to thank everybody that donated for their generosity.

Helen Johnson, Managing Partner of Emery Johnson Astills, was very pleased with how the event went and said: “This event was all about putting a face to the name of someone you may have spoken to or heard of but never actually met. It was a very relaxed evening at a great venue and we got to share some time in the sunshine with friends, colleagues and associates old and new”.

Emery Johnson Astills will continue to support Hope Against Cancer and are planning further fundraising events. For more information on Hope Against Cancer please visit their website below:
