We have rallied our customers and organised an amazing event which will be held at Stanley House Hotel on the evening of March 14th, 2014.

Businesses from across Lancashire, clients and colleagues of Cummins Mellor are supporting the night hoping to raise a whopping £10,000, with Barclays Bank agreeing to match funds raised to a maximum of £5,000.

The evening will see performances by the Youth Zone’s members entertaining the guests and sponsors with dance and song, as well as an auction and raffle.

Richard Mellor, Managing Director of Cummins Mellor Recruitment said; “I’m delighted with the overwhelming support we have received from our staff, our clients and candidates across the county and beyond.

We have had some amazing prizes donated from businesses who have shown real commitment to the cause and I have every confidence we can reach our target of £10, 000 on the evening which will be wonderful for the Youth Zone and the young people of Blackburn.”
