The Annual Fundraising Ball returns on 1 February 2020, 7:30pm – 1:00am at voco St John’s Hotel, Solihull B91 1AT.

/media/events/library/living-wall-copy.jpgAll proceeds from the night will go to St Joseph’s Care Home. The Committee hopes to raise at least £6,500 so St Joseph’s can create a sensory Living Wall.

Capable of taking people back to their childhood, engaging with happy memories, remembering holiday times and more, a Living Wall will enable staff and residents to share again in happy times.

If you are unable to attend but would like to contribute towards this fantastic work, you can make a donation on the Ball Committee’s Just Giving page.
