The fourth annual Care Sector Fundraising Ball took place on Saturday 30 September, raising £426,852 for its charities – breaking previous fundraising records for the Ball, with the Alzheimer’s Society and the Care Workers’ Charity benefitting from the proceeds.
The event is organised by the Championing Social Care team at the CareTech Foundation, supported by some of the care sector’s leading organisations as partners or sponsors. The lead partner this year was care home operator Loveday & Co. More than 600 guests came together at the Grosvenor House Hotel, in London’s Park Lane for an evening of entertainment.
Anita Goyal, chair of the Care Sector Fundraising Ball Committee, said: “It was a magical night. I am thrilled that we have raised around £1.1 million since the Care Sector Fundraising Ball started in 2018; we have united to deliver an exceptional evening. I am delighted that guests had such a great time and gave so generously. Staging the event involved a huge amount of work from so many people. It was brilliant to see so many friends and colleagues in the care sector supporting the event.”
Laurence Geller, chairman and chief executive of Loveday and Co, commented: ‘Thank you to everyone involved in staging the Ball, the guests and the donors for making it such a successful and memorable night. Through supporting the Care Sector Fundraising Ball and being an ambassador for Championing Social Care I will continue to bang the drum for the care sector and those who work in it. Together we can, and we must, make our industry even better.”
Jonathan Freeman, chairman of the CareTech Foundation, said: “The two beneficiary charities make a huge difference to the lives of people accessing care and those working in the sector. We are delighted to support them. We are also determined to acknowledge our responsibilities to society more widely by putting sustainability and accessibility at the centre of our planning.”
