Eventmasters supports bereaved Armed Forces children with Midlands Sportsman’s Luncheon in Birmingham

National corporate hospitality and events company, Eventmasters, is showing its support for bereaved Armed Forces children on Wednesday 12th December with its annual Midlands Sportsman’s Luncheon, held at the Macdonald Burlington Hotel in Birmingham.

2018 marks the 29th year of Eventmasters annual luncheon and December’s event promises to be better than ever. This year’s guest of honour is England Rugby legend and World Cup winner, Mike Tindall MBE, who will provide an insight into his playing days alongside a Q&A. He will be joined by comedian Austin Knight and Master of Ceremonies Tim Stimpson – former England and British and Irish Lions International.

Alongside a four-course luncheon and fundraising activities, including a raffle and silent auction, the festive Rugby-themed event will also see the presentation of a four figure cheque donation to Scotty’s Little Soldiers – the charity dedicated to supporting children who have lost a parent in the Armed Forces. Eventmasters, through the Eventmasters Foundation, has raised vital funds for the charity this year after becoming one of the charity’s ‘Business Heroes’.

There is still opportunity to show support for Scotty’s by attending the Midlands Sports Luncheon on 12 December. For Scotty’s patrons and supporters there is a special discounted Scotty’s price of only £135 per person. Alongside this, Scotty’s Little Soldiers will also benefit from a 10% donation of each ticket sold.

Founded by war widow Nikki Scott in 2010, Scotty’s Little Soldiers supports children across the UK. The charity was set up in memory of Nikki’s husband and father to her two children, Corporal Lee Scott, after he was killed in Afghanistan in 2009.

Eventmasters managing director Denise Sheasby commented: “We’re looking forward to what promises to be another fantastic luncheon. We can’t wait to celebrate a good year for the business whilst also raising money for a fantastic cause.”

Established in 1985, Eventmasters is one of the UK’s leading official corporate hospitality specialists, providing experiences and VIP packages around sporting and cultural events to its clients. In 2017 the company set up its own charity foundation and selected Scotty’s Little Soldiers as one of its benefactors.

Aware of Scotty’s for a number of years, it has provided items to auction at Scotty’s Little Soldiers’ annual ball each year through its sister companies comparehospitality.com and silentauctionevents.com.

Charity founder Nikki Scott said: “We’re very appreciative of the funds which Eventmasters has raised this year for the charity as well as their help with our annual ball for a number of years now. On behalf of the charity we want to say a massive thank you to the business and I’m sure this year’s Sportsman’s Luncheon will be a brilliant event.”
