Fundrais­ing for the Es­sex Air Am­bu­lance

Essex Life - - INSIDE -

On Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 12, Beres­fords will be host­ing its third an­nual char­ity gala ball to raise money for the Es­sex & Herts Air Am­bu­lance. Af­ter a hugely suc­cess­ful in­au­gu­ral event in 2016, which raised £14,500, the night has be­come one to look for­ward to year on year. Last year in­ter­est was even greater, and af­ter mov­ing to the larger venue of Braxted Park, the ball raised more than £31,500, thanks largely to the gen­eros­ity of more than 250 guests and event spon­sors such as The Blue Group.

For 2018, guests will once again be treated to a gala din­ner and a char­ity auc­tion, this year hosted by Martin Bell. The 2018 event will co­in­cide with Beres­fords cel­e­brat­ing 50 years of busi­ness and is set to be the big­gest yet. 300 tick­ets were ini­tially made avail­able and just a few still re­main. The team be­hind the event is hop­ing to raise even more money than ever, with head­line spon­sors Bent­ley Lam­borgh­ini and Ni­cholas An­thony adding to the event, and style part­ner Finique Lon­don styling many of the at­ten­dees.

Guests will have the chance to bid on an ar­ray of auc­tion lots in­clud­ing lux­ury hol­i­days in Bar­ba­dos and South Africa as well as week­end breaks in Devon

and the Cotswolds. There will also be su­perb raf­fle prizes to be won on the night, with guests in with the chance of win­ning a three-course bot­tom­less Prosecco lunch, af­ter­noon tea and spa treat­ments, to name but a few.

‘Our an­nual gala ball has grown year on year and be­come big­ger than we could have imag­ined,’ said CEO Paul Beres­ford. ‘It’s quite some­thing when you think that we only launched it two years ago. In the pre­vi­ous years we have been ex­tremely hum­bled by the num­ber of peo­ple will­ing to get be­hind this great cause, en­abling us to raise over £45,500 for the Es­sex and Herts Air Am­bu­lance since 2016. This year, with the back­ing of loyal sup­port­ers and our amaz­ing spon­sors, we have even more peo­ple on board, so we are hop­ing to raise an even larger sum.’
