Annual Winter Ball 2016

  • Annual Winter Ball

    We held our first Annual Winter Ball to raise funds for the Paul Ridd Foundation on November 16th 2016. We had a great evening beginning with a red carpet drinks reception followed by delicious food, great entertainment, great company and live music in a wonderful  setting. We would thank everyone who joined us.

    Our theme for our first year was “Winter Wonderland” where we celebrated the great work going on to improve the healthcare for people with a learning disability.

    Venue: The Aberavon Beach Hotel, Aberavon Seafront, Port Talbot, Swansea Bay, SA12 6QP

    Dress: Black tie for the gentlemen and sparkly dresses or ball gowns for the ladies.

    Make a night of it: Guests who travelled to join us treated themselves and made a night of it by booking a room at the hotel at the special price of £60 per couple for a double room and a full English breakfast. They arrived early in the afternoon, and relaxed before getting ready.

    Tickets for the Ball:  We were sold out! We sold over 270 tickets! .
