Entrepreneurs race to £100,000

Charitable entrepreneurs proved a real driving force for fund-raising as they donated £100,000 in a single night to boost the health of children across the North East.

The total, in aid of The Children’s Foundation, was the highest ever raised by the Entrepreneurs’ Forum’s annual charity ball, which this year took on a Monte Carlo Formula One theme.

More than 300 of the region’s businesspeople and their guests gathered for the popular event, which was held for the sixth time at the Hilton Hotel in Gateshead.
