OIAM Corporate Partners Thank You Dinner 2024

On 17th January 2024, guests enjoyed a fabulous evening at our annual Corporate Partners ‘Thank-you Dinner’, hosted by our friends at Napoleons Bradford, in their magnificent, newly refurbished restaurant.

Our Corporate Partners were given an update from Wayne Jacobs, Chief Executive and Co-founder, on the impact that OIAM continues to have after 18 years of serving local children and young people in the Bradford Metropolitan District encapsulated in our newly launched digital newsletter, ENGAGE.

Guests were treated to an exceptional 3-course meal, prepared by Napoleons in-house chef. They played a game of Heads and Tails in between courses with Darren Hindle from Azets winning a Samsung Galaxy Tablet kindly donated by our friend Ben Gregg at Complete IT Systems.

Following the meal, Wayne Jacobs hosted a Q&A with Mark Cowgill, who gave us an insight into his personal career journey, his vision to engage the Bradford Business community as newly appointed President of Bradford Chamber of Commerce and life as a YouTuber, who hosts a holiday cruise review channel ‘Suite Natured’ with his wife Lindsey.

We would like to say a special thank you to Barry Bradley and the team from Napoleons Bradford, for being wonderful hosts.  The food, venue and hospitality were of the highest quality!

One In A Million Charity is my chosen charity during my Bradford Chamber Presidency and the work they do with young people throughout the Bradford district is amazing. They really do make a genuine difference in both the long and short term; and I would strongly encourage any business to speak with the team there and see how you can help. Huge thanks to the OIAM team for a fantastic evening and an extended thank you, Barry and his team at Napoleons”.
