Blackburn Cathedral Appeal to hold exclusive motoring luncheon

The event takes place on Friday 28 June at Browsholme Hall

The Blackburn Cathedral Appeal, in partnership with Investec Wealth & Investment and the Parker Family, is to hold an exclusive motoring luncheon at the fantastic sixteenth century Browsholme Hall, to raise funds for the Blackburn Cathedral Appeal.

The Blackburn Cathedral Crypt Appeal Salon Prive will take place on Friday 28 June at Browsholme Hall. The event will feature a selection of classic and modern day supercars, gathered in the gardens of the historic hall, with morning coffee, canapes, a two-course lunch as well as tours of the hall available.

The Blackburn Cathedral Appeals aims to protect, restore and interpret the little-known history of Blackburn through public exhibitions of the Cathedral’s historic collections within newly created spaces situated in the Cathedral’s Crypt. The project also aims to create a visitor attraction for the nation which furthers both economic regeneration and community cohesion within the town and wider region.

Peter Howell-Jones – Dean of Blackburn Cathedral, said: “This event is a fantastic opportunity for leading business figures in Lancashire to enjoy viewing some superb cars. I would encourage individuals to join us on what will be a memorable day and unique experience and to take advantage of the many opportunities to network with like-minded business leaders.”

Richard France, Investment Director, Investec Wealth & Investment, said: “Investec Wealth & Investment is delighted to offer our ongoing support of the 2019 Salon Privé event in aid of the Blackburn Cathedral Appeal. Our continuing relationship with Blackburn Cathedral enables us to assist the committee with their ambition to create a unique facility for the city and the wider community. Becoming a member of the Blackburn Cathedral 100 Club offers excellent networking opportunities and enables local businesses to come together with a common goal and we would encourage other local businesses to join us.”

The Dean  added: “Those wishing to attend can visit the website and complete the application form, or may contact Peter Whitman directly via peterwhitman@yahoo.com or 07774 694964.”
