Birmingham Publicity Association (BPA) kicked off its fundraising drive for 2017 this month with a Chinese lunch.
BPA, which aims to unite those working in the creative industries across Birmingham and the West Midlands, hosted its first event of the year on last Friday (March 3) at Henry’s Cantonese Restaurant in St Paul’s Square.
The BPA has existed since the 1930s, supporting the media and creative industries in the region, while raising money for key charities that its members wish to support. Its members include global organisations to sole traders, graduate trainees right up to CEOs and MDs, media owners and agencies, advertising and marketing agencies, digital agencies, PR agencies and freelancers.
The networking event that raised £1,000 for BPA’s newly elected charity LoveBRUM, was attended by those working within the creative industries in the city who unleashed their inner Beyonces and Bublés for an evening of karaoke and indulging on a Chinese feast. Caroline Chell, Chair of the BPA, said:
We’re really excited to be working alongside Tim, PJ and the LoveBRUM team. The BPA council is now planning its next events, including a speaker event and its next Midlands Media Mingle.
