Castlebridge Group raises £24,000 for children’s charities at Charity Ball

by Aliya Harris

Castlebridge Group held its first ever ball earlier this year and raised over £20,000 for two charities.

The team chose to support Great Ormond Street Hospital, who support children and young people across the UK battling complex illnesses, and Children’s Heaven, a charity based in Ethiopia supporting orphaned young girls through education and teaching them key life-skills.

The black tie ball, held on January 31st at The Warwickshire Golf and Country Club in Leek Wootton, saw 200 guests enjoy dinner, magicians, an auction and live music from the awesome Joe Gibson.

Castlebridge Group has supported Children’s Heaven, an Ethiopia-based organisation providing support for orphaned children, for more than a decade, and adopted GOSH as its other nominated charity last year.

GOSH needs no introduction – the phenomenal work the hospital does to battle and overcome complex illnesses and make medical breakthroughs to support the hundreds of seriously ill children that are admitted every day is unrelenting, while Children’s Heaven provides medication, education, clothing and support to young girls in Ethiopia who have lost one Heaven or both parents to HIV and AIDS.

Having seen first-hand the work these incredibly important causes do, we were determined to raise much-needed funds for both organisations to help them continue to save lives and create futures for the children they support.

The auction prizes that helped raise such a sum included an array of Hotel stay vouchers at the Hotel Indigo Chester, Hotel Indigo Stratford, Holiday Inn Winchester donated by the hotels individually, Bottles of Priest Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, kindly provided by Somerston Group, Signed Wasps Rugby Shirt, donated by Envisage, Pamper packages kindly donated by Beauty on Demand (BOD) and the star turn, The Woodsman Experience, which Castlebridge Hospitalities group head chef Gavin Edney will come to your home to cook up to 8 people!

A huge thank you to Envisage Design, who through creative expertise created our show stopping centre pieces for each of our tables! These are available for purchase through Envisage Design themselves, if you fancy adding something amazing to your home!

We are absolutely delighted with the generosity shown by everyone who attended and would like to extend our sincere thanks to the people who were involved in making this evening so amazing. Huge thank you to Martin Vickery, from IDP, for being the incredible event host!

Castlebridge Group would like to thank the following sponsors for making the event such a success with their generous prize draw donations: Freeths, Castlebridge Hospitality, Somerston Group, McKenzie Homes, Bowmer & Kirkland, Franklin & Ellis, Edmond Shipways, Envisage Group, Chapman Taylor, IDP, Harris Lamb, Capita and Paramex.
