Volunteer run charity ball to celebrate its 112th anniversary

Shaun Reynolds 20th Jan, 2016 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016

ONE OF the oldest volunteer-run fundraising balls is to be held at the National Motorcycle Museum on Saturday (February 20).

The annual Father Hudson Fundraising Ball enters its 112th year in 2016 with proceeds from the night going towards making vital improvements to St Catherine’s Day Service in Coleshill – which supports disabled adults.

Run by Father Hudson’s Care, St Catherine’s Day Service provides activities for adults with complex care needs – helping to improve their health and wellbeing by providing them with opportunities they may not otherwise have.

Activities offered include exercise, music-making, arts and crafts and life skills.

Tickets for the ball are now sale – admission includes a three-course meal, raffle, tombola, auction and live music from The Marmites.

Money raised from the evening will be used to bring the hydrotherapy pool back into use, provide accessible IT equipment and improve personal care facilities.

Tickets are £37 or £32 for those under thirty.

To order your tickets email fundraising@fatherhudsons.org.uk or contact Ginny Cullen on 01675 434015.
