Care Sector Fundraising Ball smashes records with £424K total

The fourth annual Care Sector Fundraising Ball raised a record-breaking £426,852 for its charity partners the Alzheimer’s Society and the Care Workers’ Charity.

Over 600 guests came together at the Grosvenor House Hotel, in London’s Park Lane for entertainment and fundraising. The event was organised by the Championing Social Care team at the CareTech Foundation, supported by partners including Loveday & Co..

Since the Care Sector Fundraising Ball started in 2018, the event has raised around £1.1 million for charity.

This year’s event was also the greenest and most accessible so far. The carbon costs of every aspect of the Ball – including guests’ travel – was offset. Organisers also worked with the Royal National Institute for the Blind to ensure that accessibility was built in to the event planning.

Championing Social Care’s vision is to ensure a wider and deeper public understanding, appreciation and respect for social care.  Championing Social Care is focused on delivering positive stories and initiatives about the sector for which we care passionately.

Jonathan Freeman MBE, CEO of the CareTech Foundation said: ‘The two beneficiary charities make a huge difference to the lives of people accessing care and those working in the sector. We are delighted to support them. We are also determined to acknowledge our responsibilities to society more widely by putting sustainability and accessibility at the centre of our planning.’
