Charity Balls - they kill two birds with one stone. Firstly they provide a great networking opportunity and secondly by supporting the event worthy causes within the local community greatly benefit.
It seems to be Ball season at the moment. In October we have arranged to be at:
St Teresa's Hospice Ball - Hospice at Home, Day Care and In-patient Care for people across South Durham and North YorkshireThe Darlington Mayors Ball - is in aid of Darlington Coronary Care Support Group and Tracheo Oesophageal Fistula Support, which provides support to families of children born with rare congenital conditions.
The Masquerade Ball - in aid of Redcar & Cleveland's Women Aid
All proceeds from the Balls go to their nominated charites. Next year will be Latimer Hinks turn to hold a Ball. Organised every two years the event is always a great success. Last year alone we raised £9,200 with the help of generous Clients, friends and family.
In 2008 we aim to increase this, but until then.. as you can see from the pic, it's a hard life.... !
Judith Middleton, Partner at Latimer Hinks attended the Mayors Ball and this is what she has to say about it!
