The Band Hatton Button Shine A Light Ball!
What a fabulous evening at the Coventry Doubletree Hilton on 11th May! Not only did 220 people enjoy a wonderful evening and tasty food but over £10,000 was raised for Shine A Light Support Service in the process!
This is a record for both Band Hatton Button and Shine A Light so we are eternally grateful to everyone who supported us and in particular to Sarah Jordan from Band Hatton Button that orchestrated the whole event so professionally. We shall forever be in your debt Sarah!
Here are a few photos of the evening – we sincerely hope we will continue to work with Band Hatton Button in the future.
Part of the money raised will costs involved in sprucing up and moving in to our new premises, at which time we will start welcoming families to our new home and holding events such as an open day and our counselling services. For more details please visit our calendar on our events page.
As a valued charity partner, BHB have also offered to help us with the spruce up so we look forward to welcoming 4 volunteers who have offered to help clean and paint our new premises!
