Oh! What a Night!
Our 2020 fundraising Ball held on Saturday 1st February in the Empress Ballroom at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool , was our biggest and best yet as it celebrated the 15th Birthday of Blackpool Carers.
Over 400 guests attended, including the Mayor of Blackpool, Cllr Amy Cross, and helped to raise £12,500 to provide respite for unpaid carers of all ages. These valuable activities enable our carers to create friendships, make happy memories and cope with their selfless caring roles.
Thanks go to Bernie Atherton Carpets, Fleetwood for sponsoring our awards this year:
- Fundraiser of the Year – Sharron Mulvaney
- Caring Corporate of the Year – Ronja The Business Network
- Special Achievement Award – Blackpool Transport
- Special Recognition Award – Dee Cleary
- Linda Endicott Community Partnership Award – The Central West Hub
We would like to say thank you to all our guests, volunteers, and organisations and individuals who donated prizes and helped to make it such a successful event. A special thank you also goes out to sponsors Blackpool Illuminations and Blackpool Transport.
