We're hosting our next networking breakfast for Somerset businesses on Wednesday, May 1.

Guest speakers Ben Trickey and Ed Khodabandehloo, from Summerfield Developments, will be providing an update on commercial and residential property in the Taunton area.

Ritchie Cridge, of Somerset Chamber of Commerce, will also talk about why he is running 5k every day for a year to raise funds for St. Margaret's Hospice.

The event, at our Taunton hospice in Heron Drive, Bishops Hull, will feature an update from our chief executive Ann Lee.

Sadie Ellison, corporate fundraiser, said: “As a Somerset charity, the support of local businesses is vital in helping us to raise the £9.5m we need each year to deliver our care. Our Wake Up To Business networking breakfasts are a fantastic opportunity to connect with like-minded companies while learning more about the work of our hospice.”

The event, starting at 7.30am, is proudly sponsored by Porter Dodson. Places, costing £15, can be booked by clicking here.
