Care Sector Ball raises £140,000
October 3, 2018
People attending the inaugural Care Sector Charity Ball have given £140,000 to be shared by Alzheimer’s Research UK and The Care Workers Charity.
Organised by Hallmark Care Homes in association with Care England, the glittering fundraising event at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair at the end of September was attended by about 250 people.
Some of the key sponsors of the sell-out event were Precious Care Homes, Oomph, Care UK and Advinia.
Funds were raised in a silent auction with many prizes and pledges donated by the care sector with a generous donation of £20,000 from a guest who wished to remain anonymous. Hallmark Care Homes agreed to match fund the pledges on the night with a further £50,000.
“We are absolutely delighted that we had a sell-out event,” said Hallmark managing director Avnish Goyal.
“I would like to give a huge thanks to our lead sponsor CareTech and everyone else who supported the event by buying tables and giving so generously on the night.”
