One of the standout charity events in the Yorkshire calendar, the Firecracker Ball, is aiming to reach a target of £2m raised for Barnardo’s since it became its chosen charity in 2002.
The total raised to date is just short of £1.7m, so it needs to attract a record £300,000 plus at this year’s ball, which is within reach having raised £210,000 last year.
To help achieve this significant sum the Firecracker Ball committee is actively seeking support from individuals and businesses in the region who are interested in sponsorship packages, table bookings or donating auction or other prizes for the charity.
The prestigious black tie event is taking place on Saturday 14 November and, as in previous years, will be held at Rudding Park Hotel in Harrogate.
This year’s theme is ‘Once Upon a Time’ and guests will be transported to a world of make believe as they enter the bespoke marquee attached to the hotel which will be transformed to a land of fairy tales.
