The twenty-sixth annual Men of Rochdale Luncheon will take place in the Great Hall at Rochdale Town Hall on Friday 22 November 2019, sponsored by Jackson Jackson Ltd.
Last year’s luncheon was the most popular yet, with over 260 guests in attendance who raised a brilliant £7,000 for Springhill Hospice.
The 2018 Man of the Year was Mr John Kay. John was nominated for his dedication to raising funds for many local charities. He has raised thousands of pounds for charity over the years and is a prominent member of a number of local groups including Littleborough Canalside Trust and Littleborough Events and Association Forum. John is also an active fundraiser on the Mayor’s Charity Committee, Rochdale Connections Trust and the NSPCC.
Sophie Ansley, Corporate & Partnerships Fundraiser at Springhill Hospice said: “Our Man of Rochdale event is one of the most popular events in our annual calendar. It’s going to be such an honor to watch the new Man of Rochdale be crowned on this very humbling afternoon, and it’s going to be a great social occasion for all of our guests."
