Childrens' diabetes charity heaps praise on new company
Congleton's deputy mayor and an international professional speaker were among invited guests at the prestigious launch of a new Marketing, PR and Event company.
Champagne corks were popping and fun was in the air when Cheshire businesswoman, Christa Atwood, held the official launch of her new firm, Expose to Connections (ETC).
Guests enjoyed a stylish black and white champagne and canapé reception at the VBar at Tiamo Bar and Restaurant in Congleton.
And children suffering from type 1 diabetes will also get a boost – as money raised from the launch and other events is being donated to JDRF, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation – ETC's on-going campaign.
Sarah Johnson, Director of Policy and Communications at JDRF said: 'We would like to thank ETC for their generous support, which will help us fund research to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes, and wish them the best of luck with their new endeavour
Coun Sally-Ann Holland, deputy mayor of Congleton Town Council and international public speaker and a board member of the Professional Speaking Association, Eilidh Milnes from Winterley near Sandbach, attended the event.
Coun Holland said she was delighted to see so many local businesses attending the launch and networking with other companies.
As well as finding out about ETC, businesses got the chance to network with other businesses at the event in West Street.
ETC, based in Sandbach, is the brainchild of Christa Atwood. It offers marketing with an emphasis on the latest technology to give businesses a significant competitive edge over their competitors.
