12In12For12 Charity Ball success, thanks to everyone that attended and contributed in so many ways.
On Friday 8th April we celebrated our 12 charities with our fourth event of the year (already), in the company of over 150 people at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel for the 12In12For12 Charity Ball.
In attendance were supporters and volunteers of the charities, patrons, clients and suppliers from many local companies, plus the MP for Hyndburn and Haslingden Sara Britcliffe, Mayor of Burnley Councillor Mark Townsend, Mayor of Accrington Councillor Mrs Kathleen Pratt and Major of Pendle Neil Butterworth.
The evening of great entertainment included a red carpet entrance, 3 course meal, singer and acoustic artist, heads and tails, live and silent auctions, fun casino and topped off at the end with dancing and a DJ.
Please see the list of contributors in our ‘thank you’ section below.
