As our time as Warsop Inner Wheel’s Charity of the Year draws ever nearer, ending at the end of June, the big showpiece of their support occurred on Friday 18th May. After a year packed with events including a fashion show, a Christmas Fayre and a P Party, the Ladies of the Warsop Inner Wheel organised a big finale, and the Masquerade Ball lived up to all the expectations.
The Masquerade Ball was held at The John Fretwell Sporting Complex, which was unrecognisable upon entry. The venue had the wow factor, as on entry you were met with ceiling drapes that were lit in the charities colours, an exquisite Champagne Tombola and artwork, from our students at Sutherland House School Nottingham, were dotted around the venue for guests to admire.
The evening flowed brilliantly as guests indulged in the tombola and artwork before seating for a three course meal. After the meal speeches were delivered from both President Helen Tomlinson of the Warsop Inner Wheel and Autism East Midlands’ Chair of Trustees, Keith Doble who enlightened guests on why support from organisations such as Warsop Inner Wheel is so important for Autism East Midlands to carry on supporting autistic people across the East Midlands.
The night advanced as the wonderful Sway played a brilliant live music set filled with covers of favourites from across the decades, the only interruption to their set being the drawing of the raffle and auctioning of some artwork produced by Students at Sutherland House School.
The night was a huge success and Autism East Midlands would like to thank Warsop Inner Wheel for the fantastic support over the past year and also thank the ladies for hosting a spectacular night that helped to raise invaluable funds and awareness for the charity. We would also like to pay a special mention to our superb volunteers who helped the night to run smoothly.
