The Wings of Hope Ball raises more than £14,000 for BDCPS
A charity ball organised by the Bedford & District Cerebral Palsy Society (BDCPS) has raised more than £14,000.
The glittering event, which was held at the Bedford Corn Exchange, has boosted the charity’s funds so that planned projects for 2019 can go ahead.
The event, which took place on October 27th, was hosted by the Bedford & District Cerebral Palsy Society and Osborne Morris & Morgan were the proud sponsors of the Champagne Reception.
The night included a ‘Grand Raffle’, with prizes including an iPad, a £100 John Lewis voucher, beauty treatments and meals out.
A charity auction was also held, with the highest bidders bagging various lots, including a Spanish holiday, Brands Hatch, Nascar and Silverstone goodies and Coldplay memorabilia.
A total of £14,467 was raised on the evening.
Services Director at the BDCPS, Jane Howard-White, said of the fundraising;
“The money will enable us to continue to run and develop the wide range of services that we offer to families whose lives are affected by complex multi-faceted disability.
The sponsorship and ongoing support from OMM makes such a huge difference in achieving this.”
The BDCPS was established in 1954 and seeks to offer a range of activities for children and young adults with cerebral palsy and other associated disabilities. They focus on the abilities of the individuals as opposed to their disabilities, which in turn helps to inspire and empower everybody.
We wish to congratulate the BDCPS on the success of their ball and look forward to supporting them in the future.
