Mark Wake, Deputy Regional Director, Retail Banking & Wealth Management, said, “As a Region we are privileged to be able to work alongside some of Yorkshire’s Children’s Charities. Our aim in supporting these charities is to help maximise the funds raised, and in turn, make a real difference to the local community. Being able to channel our resources and enthusiasm into our community is something that HSBC values – but on a personal note, being a father myself, I need no motivation to really get behind these charities.

With this in mind, I’d like to commend this event to you and appeal for your support, for these very worthwhile causes, whilst assuring you of a spectacular and enjoyable evening. All of our guests at the event will receive a personalised programme outlining all the support and sponsors of the event.
I thank you in advance for reading our prospectus and I hope you will be able to join us on 4th November”.
