Flapper dresses and three-piece suits at the ready; the theme of this year’s annual charity ball is Peaky Blinders.
With award-winning Heart FM DJ Justin Lockwood as compère, the evening promises to be an exciting one, featuring live music, a three-course meal, and of course a raffle with some amazing prizes.
Guests are in for a treat this year, as apprentices from our levy clients, CH&Co, are providing the hospitality and catering for the evening – so expect your tastebuds to be tantalised.
Of course, the event wouldn’t be possible without the support of our key sponsors, so a massive thank you to NCFE and Scholars for their continued support.
Our chosen charity this year is Zoe’s Place, which provides respite and end-of-life care for babies and infants who are suffering from life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses. As well as a local hospice in Middlesbrough, they also support families in the North West and Midlands.
We’re hoping that, with the generosity of both guests and sponsors, the ball will raise lots of vital funds for Zoe’s Place, so they can continue to change lives and make a difference to children in the North East.
Brenda McLeish, Chief Executive of Learning Curve Group, said: “We’re really looking forward to this year’s charity ball. It’s always a huge success, but this year has seen record-breaking ticket sales, and has generated a lot of support from local businesses.
“Our guests are in for a great evening, while raising money for Zoe’s Place, which was chosen by the Learning Curve Group staff for the fantastic work they do locally at their Middlesbrough Hospice.
“After the success of our previous events, we’re hoping that this year’s will be just as unforgettable and that people will get behind us and support a great cause.”
Zoe’s Place provide care and support 24-hours-a-day for both children and families, offering respite care and supporting children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. The hospice is designed to be a “home away from home” allowing carers to recharge their batteries.
Our employees chose Zoe’s place to be Charity of the Year 2018 after an in house vote. For more information on Zoe’s Place, visit https://www.zoes-place.org.uk/
The Peaky Blinders Charity Ball is held at Hardwick Hall Hotel, Co. Durham on Saturday November 10. Tickets have now sold out, but LCG staff can keep an eye out for more fundraising activities in the run up to Christmas to raise more money for Zoe’s Place.
