Annual Fundraising Ball

Our annual fundraising ball is one of the highlights of the year. In previous years more than 300 supporters, sponsors and suppliers have attended and, in the process, helped raise tens of thousands of pounds.

In addition to a 3-course dinner, live entertainment and dancing, a range of fantastic fundraising activities are incorporated into the evening. This is also our opportunity to show our appreciation and gratitude to those individuals and organisations that have assisted us throughout the year through a range of awards that are presented on the night. Our next ball will be held in 2022 after a Covid-19 imposed hiatus.
