Care Sector Fundraising Ball promises an ‘heroic’ night in April
27 August, 2020
Following the recent announcement that the Care Sector Fundraising Ball has been postponed from its September 2020 date, organising committee chair and chairman of Hallmark Care Homes, Avnish Goyal has promised an “incredible night” for the new April 2021 date.
“Not only will we deliver our promise to raise an amazing amount for our charity partners, the Care Workers Charity & the Alzheimer’s Society, but we will celebrate our truly heroic frontline teams and their awe-inspiring hard work, dedication and unwavering resilience shown during the Covid-19 pandemic”,” said Avnish.
Jonathan Freeman, vice-chair of the organising committee and chief executive of the CareTech Foundation recognised the utmost importance of keeping everyone safe and the reason to postpone the event in the context of the ongoing pandemic.
“Whilst we understand the huge disappointment felt across the sector, respecting social distancing to prevent the spread of the infection must remain our main priority,” he said.
Chair of the ball committee and trustee of the Hallmark Care Homes Foundation, Anita Goyal, said April’s event would be an exceptional night, bringing everyone together to share and celebrate the amazing achievements of colleagues and friends across what is becoming known as a truly inspirational sector.
Since its inception in 2018, the Care Sector Fundraising Ball has raised a £348,000 and for 2021 organisers have their sights firmly set on breaking through the £500,000 target.
The Fundraising Ball will now take place on Saturday the 24th of April 2021 at the Grosvenor House Hotel Ballroom, Park Lane, London with BBC London News presenter and reporter Asad Ahmad already confirmed as host for the event.
