Latimer Hinks Charity Ball 2012 - The Soldiers' Charity....

Hi, it's been quite a while since my last post...apologies...but I've returned with a very important post.

We're raising money again for some very deserving charities. Every two years Latimer Hinks hosts a charity ball and for the third time we are holding the ball on the 18th May at the very glamorous Wynyard Hall in Tees Valley.

In 2010 we raised £11,500 for Help for Heroes, St Teresa's Hospice and smaller local charities. Take a look at our photos.

We hope to improve on that figure for 2012 and our main charity is The Soldiers' Charity - a charity committed to raising funds to provide lifetime support to soldiers, ex soldiers and their families.

We will also raise funds for St Teresa's Hospice and again smaller local charities.

In order to raise "loads of money" we need prizes for our various fundraising mechanisms.

We need:
  • Bottles - wine/spirits for the "water or wine" stall
  • Tombola prizes
  • Auction prizes - something special
If you/your business would like to donate a prize PLEASE let me know (Andrea Tobin 01325 341507 at@latimerhinks.co.uk). All donations will be acknowledged via the internet, throughout the evening and via associated publicity material.

I must already thank Sachins Indian Restaurant for their extremely generous donation of an auction "experience". A meal for 8 people cooked by the head chef in the comfort of the winner's own home - fabulous!

AND Chillingham Castle for an overnight break for two and Ghost Tour!

Hopefully we'll receive loads more!
