Action Oldham Fund held their third annual charity ball at Oldham Event Centre, Boundary Park, on Saturday 29th June.
The theme of this year’s ball was Masquerade, and there was real excitement as guests filled the room wearing vibrant coloured masks of all shapes and sizes.
Guests were treated to a drink’s reception, three course meal and live entertainment, with Ambreen Raja winning a prize for the best mask of the night.
The Masquerade Ball was a great success, raising just under £4,000 for local good causes, as well as receiving around £3,000 in kind donations for the raffle, auction and luxury balloon prizes.
Attendee Ross Elliot from AFC Oldham Football Club said, “The volunteers at AFC Oldham were delighted to book a table for the Action Oldham Fund Masquerade Ball.
Action Oldham Fund do such an amazing job of supporting local causes and it was brilliant to see so many companies and groups coming together to raise money and awareness.
Congratulations to all involved for hosting such a great event, we had a fantastic time and were last to leave as usual!”
Dawn Torrington from Doing Biz For Yourself said, "I made the decision to support Action Oldham Fund as our chosen charity due to the amazing work they do for small community groups in Oldham.
You know that by helping and donating the money is being spent locally which is a good feeling.
DBFY small business owners showed their generosity by donating to the majority of the auction at the Ball. We were pleased to be a part of an amazing night!"
The ball would not be possible without the support of fantastic local businesses. Pearson Solicitors supported the event as Main Sponsor for the third year running.
MioCare Group sponsored the drinks reception, while Ross Care and Medlock Medical Practice sponsored the entertainment and room decoration.
Tech Service Partner and 24 Time generously donated tickets to members of local community groups.
Action Oldham Fund supports a wide variety of good causes and smaller projects in the heart of the community – from youth initiatives raising aspirations, to older people’s groups combatting isolation.
