Furnley House Foundation raises over £38,000 for local Leicestershire charities

Over 170 people attended the Furnley House Foundation Summer Ball on Saturday 11th May at Winstanley House, Leicester, raising over £38,000 for local Leicestershire charities. 

Hosted by comedian Patrick Monahan, guests enjoyed drinks at the reception, a three-course fine dined meal and a live performance from local choir group, Musical Village. Attendees also had the opportunity to take home some amazing items in both live and silent auctions including weekend getaways and exquisite dining experiences. 

The Furnley House Foundation was born out of local financial adviser and mortgage broker Furnley House’s ambition to create opportunities and improve the lives of the local community. The Foundation holds a number of events each year to help bring the community together whilst raising money for deserving causes.    

This year, all funds raised will support three charities that were selected during the 2023 Leicestershire Community Champions Awards and includes: Charity of the year winners, Steps Conductive Education Centre and finalist Focus Charity and Heartwize.  

Steps Conductive Education Centre is a registered charity supporting families with children who have special educational needs. Focus Charity supports vulnerable young people, many of whom are in mental health crisis. Heartwize delivers basic life support training which includes CPR using resuscitation dolls as well as teaching how to use a defibrillator. 

Simon Winfield, Chairman of the Furnley House Foundation, said: “The Summer Ball is always one of the highlights of year, and it was great to see it receive so much support from the Leicestershire community again.

“The money raised helps us to achieve our mission of improving and saving lives in Leicester and Leicestershire. Thank you to everyone for their support and we look forward to our next event, the Leicestershire Community Champions Awards, later in the year.”
