We’re delighted to announce that the fantastic Yorkshire community has helped us to raise almost £1000 for a local homelessness charity as part of our four successful years in business.
More than 60 guests donned their party wear to attend the unique event and over £700 was raised for local homelessness charity, Simon on the Streets as a result.
The event, which took place at Leeds Corn Exchange on Thursday 16th May, provided us with the chance to showcase some of our client’s products whilst raising money for the worthy cause.
Guests enjoyed music from classic and vinyl jukebox manufacturers Sound Leisure and award-winning gin from Cooper King Distillery, both of which MacComms supports. Our friends at Zest Mixology ran the beautiful bar whilst BeetrootBox captured the night on film (watch this space for the footage!) Leeds Beckett University student, Ginni Donaghy worked tirelessly alongside our founder to put the event together.
Thanks to prize donations from a range of local businesses, we organised a balloon-pop raffle, further contributing to the final amount raised.
MacComms is founded and run by award-winning businesswoman Ellie MacDonald who has more than 10 years’ PR and marketing experience.
Since launching in 2015, MacComms has helped hundreds of firms to raise their profile, supporting clients across tech, manufacturing, food and drink, including The Car Buying Group, Leeds Corn Exchange and Vet-AI.
Over the past four years in business, we have raised thousands of pounds for charity and it remains part of the business aims and values as we progress into our fifth year.
Founder and managing director of MacComms, Ellie MacDonald, commented:
“It’s been a tough four years but there have been some incredible highlights and I’m really proud of what my business has become.
“We now represent some of the most impressive businesses in the country, all of which come out of Yorkshire.
“I couldn’t have done it without the support of some incredible people and I’m so grateful to have been joined by dozens of people to celebrate success and help raise vital funds for the charity close to my heart.”
Ellie ended the evening with an emotional speech about her passion to support the charity and thanked her impressive portfolio of clients and supporters for their ongoing belief in MacComms.
