large breakfast meetings at Open Space

Open Space Meeting Rooms is helping to bring local charities and businesses together through their popular bi-monthly ‘Charity Breakfasts’.

On the morning of Wednesday 24th January Open Space welcomed 27 guests for Breakfast, networking and a topical presentation from this month’s sponsors Harrison Clark Rickerbys, a leading local law firm.

January’s chosen charity was The Joanna Brown Trust. The trust works to provide people an opportunity to experience sport and supports young British athletes reach their potential. The breakfast raised a fantastic £318 and 100% of money raised always goes directly into the sporting projects supported by the charity.

Richard Brown, Founder & Trustee of The JB Trust said “2018 is very special year as it’s the 10-year anniversary of The Joanna Brown Trust, founded in memory of my sister. Open Space have been amazing. To have the platform of their charity networking event to raise our awareness to lots of local businesses is so important. We’ve already had some of those businesses offer to support us this year, so it really shows how much it can help such a small charity like ours.”

The popular breakfast launched back in September 2017 by Zoe Ryan and Sarah Stewart. Zoe Ryan said “At Open Space Meeting Rooms we want to create the perfect space for all types of businesses, meetings and events. This is where the idea of hosting a charity breakfast came from. We wanted to get together our business network with the charities we care about to create these unique events. The breakfast mornings not only bring diverse types of businesses and people together but also allows charities from all sizes to be recognised.”

“The breakfast just keeps getting bigger and bigger, meaning more exposure for the charities and in turn more money raised. We’ve had numerous compliments on the morning and we look forward to hosting many more throughout 2018 and onwards.”

Each charity breakfast supports a different charity and offers a 10-minute presentation spot for the chosen sponsor.

Open Space has five upcoming Charity Breakfasts throughout 2018. All event details and booking information can be found on the Open Space Meeting Rooms website:
