Bristol based legal firms, Ashfords and DAC Beachcroft join headline sponsor, commercial property consultants Burston Cook, and supporters including Barclays Bank and Moon Consulting.
This is the fourth year of sponsorship for Ashfords. Chris Dyson, Partner and Head of Ashfords' Bristol office, said: "Supporting the communities in which we are based is incredibly important to Ashfords. We have seen from our involvement over a number of years just how much difference the Lord Mayor's Charity Gift Gala makes to disadvantaged families in Bristol, so we are proud to once again be supporting this great initiative."
Nick Knapman, Location Head at DAC Beachcroft's Bristol office, said: "Our office in Portwall Place has for a number of years been one of the main donation points in the city for the Lord Mayor's Christmas Appeal and we have always been very proud to work closely with its Chair Bruce Simmonds to support it. We look forward to an excellent evening at the Gift Gala in May."
Bruce Simmonds, said: “We are delighted business leaders are again coming out in force to support our charity. This gala dinner is crucial to our fundraising efforts and we couldn’t do it without their backing. We thank them wholeheartedly.”
Lord Mayor of Bristol Councillor Lesley Alexander said: “We are so grateful to everyone who is making this charity gala dinner possible, including our sponsors, supporters, entertainers and volunteers.”
