Ipswich Round Table Charity Ball
On March the 5th we were delighted to put on a Charity Ball which went down a storm. At the Grand Hall in Ipswich Corn Exchange we had possibly the most packed dance floor I’ve ever seen. It was a fantastic event with an amazing auctioneer who was hilarious and an all round good night.
Grant Houlden and a few others worked their socks off delivering a record making ball. On the night we raised over £17,000 for Lapwing Education which we are thrilled with. Over 330 guests including Hollywood Actor Hugh Fraser and the Mayor of Ipswich were in attendance for a fantastic night.
Lapwing will use the money raised to help people aged 5-25 who have fallen through the gaps of education. This can often be for a number of reasons such as ill health, disability or circumstance.
We auctioned off some great prizes and so many local companies helped us to achieve such a great result. We had support from other local businesses as well for the event.
