Charity Ball 2017 (updated 16 May)

We’re looking forward to welcoming over 160 guests at our Annual Ball – Saturday 20 May at The Rayleigh Club – a record number of guests, for what’s set to be an excellent evening. A map and directions can be found below.

Guests are reminded that doors open at 7.00pm for a 7.30pm meal.

Jackie Wilson Says will entertain us throughout the evening, and we’ll have our friendly photographer there for those who want to remember the evening (or prove to their friends that they can scrub up well). We’ll likely have a bar game or two for those that want to partake, and of course the now customary Grand Raffle.
Cash only for all the above.

The club bar will be serving drinks until 12 midnight, and carriages will revert to pumpkins at 1am.

We are extremely grateful to this years’ sponsors who have helped make the event possible, and to the local businesses that have donated raffle prizes. Of course, we’re also grateful to each of the guests, whose ticket purchase itself helps the Charity to continue and develop its work, and whose collective presence will make a great night to be remembered (depending on the amount and type of beverages consumed).

Special thanks to Jamie and team at The Rayleigh Club, who have been very generous with their costs for the evening;
and to Steve and S6 Connect for managing the more technical aspects of the event, saving us both time and money.
