Unique Ladies Support Rochdale AFC Community Trust

13 December 2022

On Friday 2nd December 2022, Unique Ladies hosted their annual Christmas Lunch, in the 1907 Lounge at Rochdale AFC.

Each year, the event raises money for nominated charities – with this years fundraising being split equally between Rochdale AFC Community Trust and Advocacy Focus. This year, 75 inspirational ladies enjoyed a fantastic event, all supported by Chief Unique Lady, Suzy Orr; also a Non-Executive Director at Rochdale AFC.

We are delighted that the event raised a total of £1,600 to be split between the chosen charities, alongside a generous donation of around £400 worth of toys donated by Suzy Orr and guests at the event – totalling £1,200 support for our local community this winter.

Suzy Orr commented: “All the Unique Ladies networks I run, work with local charities, it was a no brainer for me when I launched the Rochdale group, as well as being appointed on the board of the club, to support the Community Trust.

"I’ve been impressed with everything they do, and I know our contribution will be put to good use. I also knew that all 75 of the women who were attending our Christmas Charity lunch would be happy to donate to the toy appeal, a little shout out and a bit of kindness and lots of toys.

"There’s nothing more powerful than a room full of women supporting women, I’m thrilled by the outcome.”

Charlotte Griffiths, Head of Grant Funded Projects at Rochdale AFC Community Trust commented: “It’s been fantastic to be a part of the Unique Ladies networking group since it began in Rochdale, and it was an honour to be invited to attend the Christmas Lunch and talk to the guests about all of the work going on at the Community Trust and what everyone’s donations are going towards supporting.”

On behalf of everyone at Rochdale AFC Community Trust, we’d like to say a HUGE thank you to Suzy for all of her ongoing support!
