A business celebrated its first birthday with a fundraising party.

Nicola Mellor. marked one year of her social media management business, Pepamint, by inviting friends and associated to the Voda Bar in Huddersfield for complementary drinks and a mint-themed evening with cocktails, canapes, balloons, decorations and games.

Entertainment included magic acts performed by magician Thomas Anthony and music from young artists LewRey. The evening finished with a raffle where lots of local businesses had generously donated prizes.

The MINT party raised £370 for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice at Bradley.

Nicola is pictured presenting the cheque to Lisa Calvert, of the hospice.

Said Nicola: “I wanted to have a party to raise funds for a good cause.

“The team at Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice are inspirational and I will continue to support them.”

Lisa, community fundraiser at the charity, said: “We would like to thank Nicola for supporting Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice through her Pepamint Party.

“Our charity needs to raise £3.2m each year and with just 4% of this coming from government funding the support of local businesses such as Pepamint is vital.”
