Bradford accountants support local hospice at Bond-themed fundraiser

5 April, 2017

Managers from leading Bradford accountancy firm Watson Buckle recently attended Bond & Bubbles 2017, a black-tie event held in aid of Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.

The Watson Buckle team booked a table of ten at the suave James Bond-themed event, which was held at the Rendezvous Hotel in Skipton, North Yorkshire, on Friday 31 March 2017.

Guests enjoyed a three course meal and glasses of champagne at the event, along with casino games, live entertainment and a disco, with all proceeds going to Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice, which provides incredible palliative care and complementary therapy services to support people with life-limiting conditions, including complex physical or psychological problems.

Watson Buckle Corporate Services Managers Selina Bocskei and Gillian Craven were two of the guests who attended, alongside Business Services Manager Sandra Robinson.

The team also brought along guests from Palm Cove Society Community Interest Company, Robert Watts Property Management Limited and McFadden Building and Civil Engineering Limited.

Commenting on the event, Selina Bocskei, Corporate Services Manager at Watson Buckle, said: “It has been a real pleasure attending this glitzy and glamorous evening in the name of such a good cause, which is very close to my heart.

“Manorlands offers an invaluable service to young people living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses in Craven, Airedale, and Wharfedale as well as central, northern and western areas of Bradford. All of us here at Watson Buckle are happy to support them”.

Gillian Craven, fellow Corporate Services Manager at the firm, added: “Bond & Bubbles this year was great fun. The food and entertainment was fantastic and it was wonderful to see so many people coming together to support Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice”.

Sandra Robinson, Watson Buckle’s Business Services Manager, said: “I have always admired the work undertaken by Manorlands and I sincerely hope that our donations – and the donations of everyone else who attended Bond & Bubbles – will go a long way to ensure the hospice can continue to support vulnerable people in and around Bradford.
