PANS PANDAS UK are thrilled to have been appointed as the nominated charity for the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce by incoming President of the Chamber Deb Leary.
The Chamber held its first ‘in-person’ award ceremony since lockdown and it was a lively and fun-filled event, hosting 1,300 guests at the ICC in Birmingham. The annual dinner and awards, hosted by broadcaster Ed James, celebrated all things Brummie, from the Peaky Blinders to the Custard Factory!
Deb’s speech was in equal parts, inspiring, funny and moving, especially when her speech turned to the very personal reasons behind her choosing PANS PANDAS UK as her nominated charity.
A small team from PANS PANDAS UK attended the event and were overwhelmed by the support they received. We were really pleased to meet a host of interesting and influential people, many of whom have expressed interest in supporting our cause.
We would like to say a massive ‘thank you’ to all those involved in organising such a splendid event. We can’t wait to see what the next two years of collaboration will bring!
