In October last year, the ladies of FUBHUB (Females Uniting in Business) pledged to fundraise for Wigan charity, The Brick.
Over the past six months, the ladies have undertaken various activities including running the 20-mile Ullswater Way, cake bake sales, head shot photo shoot, homemade Christmas gifts, raffles, and a head shave.
Their final activity, with Chick-A-Cheeta (Wigan’s very own ABBA girl tribute show) was held on Friday 3rd March 2023 in Whelan’s at the DW Stadium. Over 50 ladies attended and enjoyed a fizz reception, delicious lunch, bingo and entertainment by Chick-A-Cheeta. The event was sponsored by Wigan Pier Promotions, ATTAIN Digital Marketing and Sue France Consultancy.
Keely Dalfen CEO of The Brick said ‘’we are absolutely delighted and astonished at the lengths and effort that has gone into raising money for The Brick by the ladies at Fub Hub. We are seeing first-hand the devastating effects of the cost-of-living crisis not only on people we support, who do not know how they are going to afford further rises in energy bills and food inflation, but for the charity itself. We are a small local charity, and we are hitting crunch point trying to keep all our services open whilst meeting an unprecedented increase in demand. The amount raised will go a long way to support our projects ensuring that people receive our help at a time of greatest need. A huge thank you to Sue and everyone involved for their tenacity and compassion in their fundraising efforts’’.
FUBHUB was set up in 2016 by women for women in the northwest. They meet once per month in Wigan on the second Wednesday of the month.
