The Midland branch of the Journalists’ Charity raised £15,000 from its recent lunch with Sir Michael Parkinson.
The charity is now making plans for its next fundraiser - its annual Geyhound Evening.
The ever popular event, which has been running for the last 35 years, takes place at Hall Green Stadium in Birmingham on October 13.
Corporate packages are available, with tables seating eight guests.
Any businesses or individuals interested in attending should contact Val Deeley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
