Winter Ball, 2013 November 23, 2013 15:24

The Boxmoor Playhouse in Hemel Hempstead was transformed into a Winter Wonderland for one sparkling night on November 23rd 2013.

With snow-dusted balloons, crystal scattered tables and twinkling lights, the scene was set for a special night of fundraising for Charlie’s Gift.

The evening began in style with a champagne reception followed by a few words from our Trustee David, announcing the news of Charlie’s Gift receiving charity registration and with the unveiling of our new logo! Glasses were raised all round to toast the continuing success of the charity. 

Then the evening got into full swing with a disco until late, delicious food and yet more champagne flowing! The glittering evening was topped off with the draw of our fantastic raffle. A magical night was had by all, raising an incredible £2,000!  This money was donated to Playskill, a pre-school playgroup for children with special physical needs and has been used to help fund a van to transport play and specialised equipment between Playskill’s two bases in Hemel Hempstead and Watford. 

Our thanks go to Justine from Just B’loons whose beautiful balloon arrangements transformed The Playhouse into something really special.
