Annual ball tots up a hair-raising £16,500 for Harrogate Neighbours!04 11 2021
Our ‘Spooktacular’ charity ball returned to The Crown Hotel on Friday the 29th October having been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Over 150 guests attended the Halloween-inspired evening and were treated to live music, a three-course meal and a fantastic raffle. In the spirit of Halloween, the food served on the night included a 12-hour, slow-cooked lamb shank, and a trio of daringly delicious desserts, including “Butchered Toffee Apple”, “Winter Berry Blood cake” and “White Chocolate and Meringue Ghost”.
The event, which was kindly sponsored by local businesses, including Luxxx, Bullseye, Razor Blue and Slingsby raised an amazing £16,500 for Harrogate Neighbours.
Our CEO Sue Cawthray said of the event,
“It was so wonderful to be able to host the annual Harrogate Neighbours ball and finally have something to celebrate. It’s been such a tough 18 months, but with the support of local businesses and the community, we have all pulled through together and we’re extremely grateful for all the support we’ve received.
Thanks to the record-breaking amount of money raised on the night, we’ll be able to start putting the plans in place for a tranquil sensory garden at The Cuttings for all the residents, their family and friends to enjoy.”
