Industry professionals from the region’s construction and property sectors will come together in October for a night of fine dining and live music, to raise money for local charities at the annual Sheffield Charity Construction Ball.
Taking place on Friday 21 October at Sheffield City Hall, the black tie event will bring together contractors, developers, architects, engineers, and other property professionals that operate in and around Sheffield to raise money for this year’s chosen charity, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice care for children and young adults with life-shortening or life-threatening conditions and is currently supporting around 250 families, both in their own homes and at the hospice in North Anston.
Each year it costs over £4 million to keep the hospice open, which is one of only a few children’s hospices in the country. Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice relies heavily on community fundraising for financial support, therefore the money raised from the Sheffield Charity Construction Ball will help support the hospice continue their vital work with the children and families it supports.
The charity ball will involve a drinks reception followed by a three course dinner prepared by some of the finest chefs in the area, with a live performance from The Silvertones.
The annual event has been running for 15 years and is the longest running construction event in the north. Over the last 15 years the ball has successfully raised £200,500 for charities across the region.
This year’s event has been organised by HLM, Arup and Rider Levett Bucknall and has been sponsored by Kier Construction and Counter Context.
