Glitz and glamour comes to Salford for charity ball
The AJ Bell stadium is to play host to an evening of glitz and glamour for a ball to support the vital work of a children’s charity.
The event, organised by North West children’s charity CANW (Child Action Northwest), is to raise funds to support the charity’s Salford based Pro Contact Centre. The pro-contact centre provides a safe, friendly, neutral space for children and young people to spend time with both parents after separation.
The Pro Sparkle Ball, which will be held on March 25th in Salford, will feature a champagne reception, followed by a three course meal, live entertainment and a themed casino. It is hoped that the funds raised will help ensure CANW can continue providing the services.
Natasha Houghton, Fundraising Manager for CANW said: “We would like people to come out and support the event, which we hope will help beat away the January blues.
“CANW has hosted a couple successful balls in the past, but our 2016 Pro Sparkle Ball is set to bigger, better and a whole lot of fun. The night will be full of entertainment, and will really show the passion behind CANW and the services we support.
“Local artists and entertainers are donating their own time to make the night a huge success and together we hope the Pro Sparkle Ball guests enjoy the evening, and walk away with a belief and passion for the centre and contribute towards its future.”
Principal Social Worker Hannah Wilson said: “The Pro Contact service is a lifeline to many families, allowing children and parents to spend quality time together in a safe environment.
“We offer varying levels of support from supported contact, where volunteers remain in the contact rooms to support families when there are issues, through to supervised contact where a supervisor is in constant sight and sound of the child. We also provide a handover service so parents do not need to come into direct contact with one another, and a service to help support children to understand changes within their family.
“We rely heavily on the donations that we receive as we get very little government or council money. As a charity we don’t make a profit on any charged services, and every penny donated goes towards providing services to families where conflict damages children.”
Individual tickets cost £55, table of ten £500.
