Owners of Anthony James Estate Agents, Mark and Lyn Cunningham, held a garden party which raised an amazing £1,400 and the couple announced that they are also donating £10,000.
The Big Summer Bash was held at the Cunningham’s Birkdale home on Saturday July 7 with guests donating their entrance fee to Community Link Foundation.
Entertainment during the day was provided by Matt Fearon and Decoy with Alistair Cunningham and Paul Ennis doing DJ duties. The children were kept happy by Starkidz who put on a Greatest Showman party complete with a ringmaster and circus skills workshops.
Lyn Cunningham said: “It was such an amazing day and we are so grateful to everyone who came along and supported the event. We have supported Community Link Foundation since its inception and we feel so passionate about what they do and how they support local people and local causes.
“As a Southport based business, it’s really important for us to support people and organisations in the area that we live and work. Community Link Foundation echoes exactly that so we are delighted to be able to support them with our own donation of £10,000.”
Enda Rylands, chairman of Community Link Foundation, said: “We are so grateful to the Cunninghams for hosting this event and to everyone who attended and helped raise the money for CLF.
“We are absolutely delighted and incredibly thankful to Anthony James Estate Agents for the donation of £10,000. The money will go a really long way to help people in our own community and they will be able to see just how it changes people’s lives. We are very grateful to everyone who participated in the Big Summer Bash and thank you to the Cunninghams for being such amazing hosts.”
