The Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity whichsupports babies and children under five with cerebral palsy were thrilled with the Business Pulse afternoon of racing all in aid of the charity.

The event took place on Monday 6 June at Brighton Racecourse and raised a whopping £3,000.

Nass of Business Pulse commented: “After visiting the charity and seeing the work they do for myself I had to do something to help, how could I not.

“They make such a difference to children’s lives. Hearing Kerry whose young son attends the charities service speak on the day moved the room to tears. Her story and her strength was simply inspiring.

“I want to pass on my Personal thanks to all the 62 guests who attended the Winning Post Suite, all of whom donated so generously. In addition Stephanie Kirkley; Business Development Manager at Brighton Race, Course Maria James; Owner at MJ’s Relax & Revive and Catherine Bristow, Events organiser and all the staff at Dame Vera Lynn Children’s charity it has been a pleasure to support them.

“I would like to say a special thanks to all the race day sponsors who had such an impact on the event being a financial success, Jack Keywood MD at Luvcarpets Ltd; Dr Sharon Cooper, Director at Envitia Ltd; David Wride, MD at Regis Removals Ltd;; Rob Lelliott; Manager at KSL Accountants; Brendan Cook; MD at Kiwi Recruitment; It was really an amazing day and in real terms means the charity can support 15 children to receive a support session at the school.”

Catherine Bristow, events fundraiser commented: “We are extremely grateful to Nass from Business Pulse as having support from local businesses really can make a huge difference to us.
