We have had our BACKUP fundraising gala ball on Saturday 17th November 2018 which brought in a whopping £24,123 which is going to be used to support young people who are homeless but also specifically are struggling with mental health issues, domestic abuse and sexual exploitation.
With sponsorship and match funding from Barclays Bank and Bolton at Home the event was compered by the fantastic Ronnie Orr and attended by 150 people with guests of honour the Mayor of Bolton Councillor Elaine Sherrington and Mayoress Ms Samantha Sherrington.
The event was held at Last Drop Village and we were entertained by Soul and Motown sensation Diane Shaw and her band. We were also treated to an opening performance by the Yorkshire Volunteer Corps of Drums who were amazing. Feedback from the event has been overwhelmingly positive, it was a fantastic night.
