At the beginning of November members of the Shout Friday Morning business network group were challenged by the group chairman, David Kevill of Bamber Bridge-based Inspire Business Training, to raise funds for Derian House by achieving 100 per cent attendance at the remaining three meetings scheduled for November.
David offered to contribute £10 to a Derian House fund for each week that 100 per cent of members attended the weekly meetings or arranged a substitute to attend on their behalf.
Such was the response from other members in support of the Chairman’s Challenge that an idea which set out to raise £30 ended up raising over £250 in just three weeks.
Shout Friday Morning is one of five network groups run by the Shout Network and meets every Friday morning at 8am at Preston Golf Club.
Members are from a very wide range of businesses covering an area encompassing Chorley, Preston and Blackpool.
Meetings are run in a very relaxed and entertaining manner whilst achieving the key aim of generating business for the members.
Anyone involved in a local business is welcome to attend the groups as a visitor and they will always be made very welcome.
