Time to have a ball and help char­ity keep work­ing with chil­dren

Gloucestershire Echo - - REMEMBRANCE 2018 -

HUN­DREDS of young peo­ple across Glouces­ter­shire are ea­gerly await­ing this year’s Blue­bird Ball in sup­port of the NSPCC’S Child­line ser­vice.

Hav­ing run for more than 60 years, the black-tie ball is a ma­jor event in the cal­en­dar of young peo­ple in the area, rais­ing money to help chil­dren who con­tact Child­line for help.

There are still a few tick­ets avail­able for this year’s James Bond themed event, which is open to young peo­ple from school years 8, 9 and 10.

The evening’s en­ter­tain­ment will in­clude a disco with light show, fun casino and photo booth.

The event raises a gen­er­ous amount for Child­line each year, which helps keeps the Child­line ser­vice up and run­ning.

Com­mu­nity fundrais­ing man­ager Caro­line Mor­gan says: “The re­main­ing tick­ets for this year’s Blue­bird Ball are get­ting snapped up fast, so young peo­ple want­ing a last-minute ticket need to be quick.”

This year’s ball is on Satur­day, Novem­ber 17, be­tween 7.30pm and 11pm at Pittville Pump Room.

Tick­ets are £20 and can be bought from .nspcc.org.uk/what-you-can-do/ char­ity-runs-cy­cles-and-chal­lenges/ so­cial-and-spe­cial-events/blue­bird­ball/
