On 24 September 2022 the sector will once again come together to raise essential funds for both the Care Workers Charity and the Alzheimer’s Society. Nearly 500 guests are expected to attend the event at Grosvenor House in London.
Supporters already confirmed include CareTech, Hallmark, Majesticare, and Precious Homes.
The ball was founded by Avnish Goyal, chair of Care England and Championing Social Care. In its first two years it raised £348,000 for social care charities.
Recognising the importance of sustainability, event organisers will be partnering with Ecologi to offset carbon emissions created by the ball.
Avnish Goyal said: “We are incredibly pleased to announce that the Care Sector Fundraising Ball is making a comeback to the social care calendar of events and will also be going green! “This event will be a great opportunity for us all to come together as a sector, fundraise in a meaningful way, network and have fun in the process. We cannot wait.”
Jonathan Freeman MBE, group sustainability director at CareTech said:‘We, at CareTech plc, are committed to a greener, cleaner future and will join other sector leaders to reduce our carbon footprint. All of this starts with the fundraising ball, where like-minded representatives of the sector will come together to represent the values held dear by all of us.’
Kate Lee, CEO of the Alzheimer’s Society, commented: “We’re thrilled that the Alzheimer’s Society has been chosen as a beneficiary of the Care Sector Fundraising Ball. It’s heart-warming to see the sector coming together again to celebrate our incredible care workers, who have been on the frontline throughout the pandemic, and to raise vital funds for people affected by dementia.”
Karolina Gerlich, CEO of the Care Workers Charity, added: “We are excited and grateful to be supported by the Care Sector Fundraising Ball 2022. With Covid-19 restrictions lifted it will be a wonderful opportunity for the social care sector to get together and celebrate the work and resilience of the workforce over the past two years. We are grateful to Hallmark and CareTech for their friendship and continued support.”
