Business for Calderdale hosted a dinner for members and guests at Berties Banqueting Rooms where former Liverpool defender and TV pundit Mark Lawrenson was one of the guest speakers.
Lawrenson made 356 appearances for Liverpool in the 1980s, and is now a BBC TV and radio pundit.
Nick Worsnop, of Chadwick Lawrence solicitors and chairman of Business for Calderdale, said “This was a great event. Mark was brilliant, recounting tales of his time with Liverpool including his experiences playing in the then European Cup.
“Everyone had a really good evening. We wanted to end 2016 with a landmark event. We hope to plan another in 2017”.
The event raised over £700 which will be split equally between Overgate Hospice and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
The group’s next meeting will be at Croft Myl in February 2017.
