Call for companies to sponsor Father Hudsonís fundraising ball

Ball 2015

Our 112th annual fundraising ball takes place on 20 February 2016 at the Motorcycle Museum near Birmingham Airport. We’re looking for caring corporations to get involved by sponsoring the event.

There are a wide range of opportunities from advertising in the evening’s programme to sponsoring the Band. You could use the event to entertain clients or to reward staff, or why not bring your family and friends for a fantastic night out in aid of a great cause?

Every year for more than a century the Ball has raised funds for a different area of Father Hudson’s work. This year proceeds will be used to enhance the lives of disabled adults with complex care needs who use St Catherine’s Day Service, by making vital improvements to the equipment and facilities. 

To find out more about this year's Ball, you can visit the events page

Your business could support the event through the following opportunities:

  • Sponsor the raffle ticket: £450
  • Sponsor the band: £800
  • Sponsor the tombola: £800

 Or you could advertise your business in the evening’s programme

  • Full page advert: £300
  • Half page: £175
  • Quarter page: £75

The programme contains the menu for the evening so your advert will be seen by everyone who attends. 

Local photograhper, Pez Anson, will be present on the night, taking pictures of all guests as they arrive and taking action shots throughout the night. This is an ideal opportunity to capture the moment with a commemorative picture of you and your guests. Photos will be available to purchase instantly on the night and Pez is kindly donating a percentage of each sale towards our fundraising goal.

Tickets for the ball are still available. They cost £37 or £32 for under 30s and are available from Ginny Cullen on 01675 434015 or ginnycullen@fatherhudsons.org.uk

The Ball hopes to raise over £10,000 this year to improve the facilities and equipment at St Catherine's Day Service. The Day Service is a very special place, doing amazing work in an ageing building which is in desperate need of refurbishment.

A relative of one of the clients said: “My mother in law is actually a resident of St Catherine’s Bungalows after having suffered a catastrophic brain injury in her thirties. The work that the St Catherine’s team does in creating a safe and caring environment for people with complex needs is second to none. Having seen the Day Service’s facilities, they can only benefit from an injection of cash to refurbish the building.”

If you would like further information about supporting our fundraising efforts to help disabled adults by improving St Catherine’s facilities, please contact Ginny Cullen on the number or email above.
