The Huddersfield Town Foundation is delighted to announce that Simone Roche MBE has kindly agreed to host its ‘Fizz Friday’ Ladies Lunch event on Friday 19 November!

Close to 150 guests are set to fill the Manor House in Lindley for a fun-filled afternoon of food, drink, games and plenty more.

Simone is founder of Northern Power Women, Northern Power Futures and the Power Platform, in addition to being the Managing Director of event curation company Events 1st.

Her career has seen her develop a specialist network of impactful men and women and curate a portfolio of campaigns/events/podcasts that reach globally.

Simone was awarded an MBE for services to gender equality in the Queen’s 2018 Birthday Honours and was later appointed Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Navy in June 2020. July 2021 saw her be promoted to the role of captain.

On the news Siobhan Atkinson, Chief Executive of the Town Foundation commented:

“We are thrilled to have Simone on board for what is set to be a fantastic afternoon highlighting the Foundation’s important work and raising vital funds.

“I know she will bring a bundle of energy to the role and look forward to seeing her meet and engage with our supporters.”

There is still time to support the event in a sponsorship capacity, with the Foundation looking for a Headline Sponsor and Drinks Sponsor.

The headline sponsor will benefit from a range of benefits, including but not limited to a table of 10 at the lunch, their logo being on all printed material, PR opportunities and wine with lunch.

The drinks sponsorship package includes having your logo on all printed material, an announcement of the sponsorship on all our social media channels and a single page advert in the Fizz Friday event brochure.

Should you wish to enquire about either of those options, please email Fundraising Executive Lisa Bottomley in the first instance:
