On Saturday 22nd September we held our “Greatest Show” Charity Ball at the Doubletree buy Hilton, Hull. A total of 260 guests took their seats under the “big top” as the Ings Primary School Choir and Wedding Belles sang their repertoire of songs to welcome them.
Then it was time for our delicious circus-themed menu which included popcorn soup and funfair desserts.
We were treated to a spellbinding performance from a group of local aerial performers and our compere Nathan Major even serenaded us with a Greatest Showman classic.
Guests took part in fundraising activities such as our “Grand Balloon Pop” and our silent auction.
The event was our most successful ball EVER and raised a whopping £9,000!
