A BUSINESS networking dinner has served up a tasty treat for an animal sanctuary.
The event, organised by Hydra Creative, raised more than £1,500 for Thornberry Animal Sanctuary on Todwick Road, North Anston.
South Yorkshire businesses attended the event at the Silver Plate Restaurant at Sheffield College, which was the third networking dinner organised by the company to support the charity.
The Mayor of Rotherham, Cllr Eve Rose Keenan, and her consort Pat, were present.
Thornberry Animal Sanctuary, set up in 1988, was nominated as Hydra’s charity of the year for 2017.
Gemma Daniels, client services director at Hydra Creative, said: “This year’s charity dinner was a huge success, with the great and good of South Yorkshire’s business community coming together to raise vital funds for Thornberry Animal Sanctuary.
“Perhaps more importantly, awareness has been raised of the charity, with several business owners I talked to expressing interest in getting involved with the charity moving forwards, which is great news and a great result.”
