The fourth annual Care Sector Fundraising Ball took place on Saturday 30th September, raising £426,852 for its charity partners. The amount raised broke previous fundraising records for the Ball, with the Alzheimer’s Society and the Care Workers’ Charity benefitting from the proceeds.
The event is organised by the Championing Social Care team at the CareTech Foundation, supported by some of the care sector’s leading organisations as partners or sponsors. The Headline Partner this year was Loveday & Co. and the Foundation supported the Ball as Philanthropy Partner. Over 600 guests came together at the Grosvenor House Hotel, in London’s Park Lane for a varied evening of entertainment.
This year’s event was also the greenest and most accessible so far. The carbon costs of every aspect of the Ball – including guests’ travel – was offset. Organisers also worked with the Royal National Institute for the Blind to ensure that accessibility was built in to the event planning.
Jonathan Freeman MBE, CEO of the CareTech Foundation and Vice Chair of the Championing Social Care, said: ‘The two beneficiary charities make a huge difference to the lives of people accessing care and those working in the sector. We are delighted to support them. We are also determined to acknowledge our responsibilities to society more widely by putting sustainability and accessibility at the centre of our planning.’
