HEALTH Secretary Sajid Javid was among those in attendance at Primrose Hospice’s Networking Business Lunch on March 25, which raised more than £3,000.
Local businesses enjoyed an afternoon of networking over a meal before Mr Javid, who is a patron of the Hospice, hosted a Q&A session.
The money raised will go towards helping the Primrose to support people living with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
Mr Javid has supported the hospice many times in the past, including completing a 10k running challenge last year which raised £20,000.
He said: “This is a charity which is extremely important to the local community around Bromsgrove and Redditch.
“It is an honour to be their patron and support them in any way I can.”
David Burrell, Chief Executive Officer at Primrose Hospice added: “We are proud to have Mr Javid as our patron and it was a real pleasure to have him as our guest at our recent event.”
