Halloween Masquerade Gala raises over £3k
Exeter based Eclipse's entrepreneurial Million Makers team are delighted to be supporting The Prince’s Trust and their Halloween fundraising efforts have raised over £3,000 at the first of many events that they are hosting across the city.
The Eclipse Million Makers Halloween Masquerade Gala was held at Exeter Southgate Hotel, by local Heart FM breakfast presenter Caroline Cook, and saw local business people enjoy an evening of networking and entertainment.
The event included a host of charitable auctions, raffles with an up-close magician and Halloween themed gargoyle living statue. Guests enjoyed bidding for prizes kindly donated by local businesses, including signed Exeter Chiefs memorabilia, X Factor final tickets and sporting events.
Youth charity The Prince’s Trust aims to help 58,000 disadvantaged young people in the UK this year, giving them the confidence and skills to turn their lives around. Three in four young people on Prince’s Trust schemes move into work, training or education.
Clodagh Murphy, Managing Director at Eclipse comments; "The Eclipse team never cease to amaze me! From across all areas of the business a team have come together to raise money for The Prince's Trust as our Million Makers team. The passion, energy, ingenuity and downright hard work being demonstrated by the team is brilliant. Not only are they raising money for this fantastic cause, they are using the opportunity to develop and grow their skills. It really is exciting to watch the team as they embrace the challenge and achieve their goals. I am very proud of them all."
The Eclipse Million Makers team will be responsible for making a real difference to young people’s lives, whilst also gaining the opportunity to exercise their own entrepreneurial skills, and following the success of their first event, will be leading the charge with more fundraising in the coming weeks.
