Bath-based public relations agency Geometry PR celebrated 10 years in business on Friday 7th October and marked the occasion by organising a Las Vegas themed fundraising dinner for 140 people.
The evening, held at Bath Rugby Club, featured dinner, fundraising casino and Rat Pack style crooner, and raised £4,632 for the Bath Rugby Foundation, an independent charity that works to enhance the lives of young people through sport. The Foundation plays a vital role in the Bath community working with disabled children, children from disadvantaged backgrounds and those who are simply in need of guidance as they experience the difficulties of young adulthood. In 2010, the Foundation helped 23,000 children in the Bath area.

Linda Donaldson, Managing Director at Geometry PR said: “I am really proud of how the company has grown since it was first started in 2001. I believe our success is the culmination of passion and a commitment to deliver results for the businesses we represent. For several years we have adopted the Bath Rugby Foundation as our corporate charity and spend time each year raising funds. While the Foundation enjoys a clear association with Bath Rugby it is an independent charity and relies solely on grants, donations, and the goodwill of the Bath community to deliver its projects. The money raised on Friday will help it to continue its good work and I would like to thank everyone who attended our fundraising dinner for making it a great success.”
Nick Blofeld, Chief Executive of Bath Rugby said: “Geometry did a great job of transforming the clubhouse into a Vegas style casino and all of the guests got into the spirit of the evening and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It was particularly pleasing to see how generous guests were, especially considering these are difficult times. Geometry PR is a great supporter of the Foundation and Rick and Linda are great supporters of the rugby club. So it was wonderful to be able to share in their anniversary celebrations. The funds raised will go to help a lot of young people in the area.“
Bath’s local business community has not been slow in showing its support for Geometry PR since the award winning agency relocated to the city in April.
