A first responder will speak about her and other volunteers’ life-saving work throughout the year at a business forum’s Christmas lunch.
Rachel Hillier, from Diss First Responders, will give the talk after the Diss Business Forum event on the work the first responders have done to help people throughout the year, as well as how businesses can help support them as they make their fundraising plans for 2018.
The event at The Park Hotel in Diss on Thursday, December 7 is open to all types of local businesses and independent traders, who are encouraged to come together and enjoy the forum’s annual Christmas networking event.
Chairman of the Diss Business Forum and partner of Lovewell Blake Brian Bale said: “This is not only a time for celebration and catching up with business and professional colleagues but also a time for reflection and thought for others.
“It gives us a chance to get together socially before the usual Christmas rush really gets going.
“Rachel’s talk also reminds us how lives can suddenly change and gives us the confidence that help is close to hand when some unforeseen problems arise.
“I look forward to seeing and catching up with many of our members and welcoming new members at this time.”
The event starts at 12.30pm, with guests enjoying a welcome drink and festive music before a three-course lunch is served.
The special ticket price of £25 includes a welcome drink, three course lunch and entertainment.
Non-members and guests are also welcome to attend this and other Diss Business Forum events.
Forty businesses have already booked their place for lunch and bookings will close early next week.
Those who would like to come can visit www.dbf.org.uk to book a place.
Membership of the Diss Business Forum costs just £30 a year.
