Emerald Ball raises over £6,500 for NSPCC
Colchester’s biggest annual fundraising ball was a huge success again this year, raising our biggest ever total: £6598.20 to help the vital work of the NSPCC in the local area.
Held on Saturday 13th November at The Moot Hall, over 100 people came to the event, and enjoyed:
- wonderful catering by The Lemon Tree
- outstanding five-piece band Soul Kitchen
- casino tables
- caricature artists
- stilt-walking fire-breathers!
Kat Creativ Director Katie Skingle – who chairs the Colchester NSPCC Business Group – says: “It was another wonderful evening made possible by our main sponsors Colchester Lion Walk, Feathers Hair Salons, Weston Homes and Weston Business Centres. We’re proud and pleased and I am, as always, extremely grateful to my fellow committee members for their huge efforts and never-ending dedication to this worthy cause. Every year, we aim to hand over a bigger cheque to the Colchester NSPCC projects than we did the year before, and I’m pleased to say that with the successful fundraising activities we’ve managed to achieve throughout this year we will indeed be able to do that again for 2010!”
Sally Phipps, Deputy Head of Local Fundraising London North and East of England/Community Fundraising Manager, says: “We’re so pleased to have such a fantastic group of supporters in the form of the Colchester NSPCC Business Group who have raised such wonderful sums to support the vital work of the NSPCC.”
