Agency Make Events to run BetFred charity ball

Manchester-based agency Make Events has been selected by BetFred owner Fred Done to produce a charity ball and business networking event in September.

The networking and charity event, which will take place at the Hilton Deansgate in Manchester on 17 September, will attract businesses from around the North West.

Confirming his commitment to the partnership, Done said: "It is crucial that those of us fortunate enough to be able to can find the time to support local projects. The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital does outstanding work on a daily basis and I am delighted to be able to support that work in a small way. Make Events are the perfect partner to deliver this for us."

Make Events was set up four years ago by entrepreneur Holly Moore and is on target to hit £1m turnover this year after winning its first international events, in Lisbon and Dubai. Other recent wins for the company include Virgin East Coast Trains, PZ Cussons and Hays Recruitment.
