The leading supporters for the care sector’s biggest fundraising event have been confirmed for 2020. Specialist care provider, CareTech plc, and independent grant-making foundation, the CareTech Foundation, will once again be headline partners for the event. CareTech plc and the CareTech Foundation have supported the Ball as Headline Partners from the event’s inception. Their combined support represents a £30,000 contribution to the Ball.
The Care Sector Fundraising Ball, which this year raised a staggering £200,000 for charities in the care sector, was first established in 2018. Since then, it has raised a total £345,000 for charities in the care sector. Organisers are confident that next year’s Ball will build on the success of previous years, and the beneficiaries for the 2020 event will be the Care Workers’ Charity and Alzheimer’s Society.
Haroon Sheikh, CEO of CareTech plc, said: “The company is delighted to be supporting this amazing event for the third year. As a leading provider of social care for young people and adults with learning disabilities, we take our responsibility to the communities we serve very seriously. The Ball provides an excellent opportunity for us to support two powerful charitable causes close to our hearts and we look forward to this year’s event raising even more funds for them.”
Jonathan Freeman (right), CEO of independent charity the CareTech Foundation and Vice-Chair of the Ball Organising Committee, said: “Over the last couple of years, the Care Sector Ball and the organising committee have shown just how much this event can achieve, raising desperately needed funds for the care sector. The Ball is a perfect opportunity, not just to support these deserving charities, but also to take a moment to recognise the outstanding work of the UK’s care workers. I’m very pleased that we’re able to support it as it enters its third year, and I’m confident that the Ball will continue to be a real success.”
Avnish Goyal (pictured at top), founder of the Care Sector Ball and Chair of Hallmark Care Homes, said: “We are hugely grateful to CareTech plc and the CareTech Foundation for once again supporting the Care Sector Ball. Without their support, it is unthinkable that the event could have been so successful in 2019 and raised so much for our two worthy charities. We’re all hugely ambitious about what can be achieved in 2020, and having CareTech plc and the CareTech Foundation as our Headline Partners has got us off to a tremendous start.”
This year’s Care Sector Ball will be on Saturday 26th September 2020. Already, almost 50% of table sales have been confirmed in under two months. Places are going fast so please contact [email protected] to sponsor a table now.
