Every two years Latimer Hinks Solicitors host a Charity Ball in aid of local charities and on June 6th 2014 it will be our 8th Ball!

To date Latimer Hinks has raised over £50,000. Beneficiaries of monies raised (to name just a few - and in no particular order) include:

  • St Teresa's Hospice
  • The County Durham Foundation
  • Farm Crisis Network
  • Age Concern
  • Darlington Town Mission
  • The Breathe Easy Group
  • The Way Foundation
  • Family Help
  • Darlington & District Social Blind Club
  • Holistic Cancer Care Centre
  • The Teenage Cancer Trust
  • Help for Heroes
  • The Soldiers' Charity
  • Childline
  • North East Air Ambulance
  • Darlington on Disability
We have invited local business people to attend and so far the response has been overwhelming. Invitations were posted on 10th February and 19 tables have already been booked by businesses/organisations that have attended in the past. We strive to provide an excellent evening and repeat bookings are encouragement that we must certainly be doing something right!!

In 2014 entertainment will be provided by Cole Page an international swing singer and magician David Penn as well as a casino, disco etc. Once again the venue will be the fantastic Wynyard Hall.

For us to continue to raise much needed funds we need prizes ... prizes that we can use on our tombola, our golden ticket draw and also our auction.

We're looking for something special for auction prizes, perhaps something money can't buy - an experience?

If you/your business would like to donate  PLEASE let me know (Andrea Tobin 01325 341507 your donation will be acknowledged via the internet, throughout the evening and via associated publicity material before and after the event - and also on our blog!
I look forward to hearing from you.
