Celebration ball raises £7,500 for work of YMCA Norfolk
YMCA Norfolk held its annual celebration ball on Friday June 14 at Wensum Valley Hotel and Golf Club, raising an impressive £7,500 for the organisation, its young people and services.
Staff, friends and supporters attended the black-tie event, where YMCA Norfolk young people spoke about their inspiring journeys with the organisation and opened-up about their hope-filled futures.
Anglia Picture Perfect provided a photo booth with props to dress up with, while Norfolk-Based band The Wapscallions had the crowd dancing to well-loved hits including, of course, Y-M-C-A. The evening’s entertainment also included close up magic tricks from magician Mark Daynes.
Judy Bailey, YMCA Norfolk Events and Fundraising Officer, said: “Guests were able to enjoy drinks on the terrace in the evening sunshine, be amazed by the magician, have fun on the photo booth, tuck in to a delicious meal and then dance the night away.
“Thanks to everyone who attended, supported and donated and to our sponsors Clear Consulting & Design Ltd, KGB Commercial Heating, Norwich Electrical and US2U Consulting as well as our young people who had the courage to stand up and tell people their personal stories.”
