On Saturday 7th December, we held our 2019 Annual Ball at Great Yarmouth Town Hall. The event, which was attended by over 100 people, was supported by the Mayor for the Borough of Great Yarmouth, who kindly allowed us to use the venue. The Ball is always a fantastic chance to celebrate the successes of the past year, whilst raising funds to support the work that Leeway does, and it was great to see so many of our supporters at the event.
The evening was opened by Leeway Patron, Nina Nannar, who spoke of the importance of continuing to raise awareness of domestic abuse and holding fundraising events. Nina also shared some of Leeway’s achievements of the past year, including the opening of our eighth safe house and the successful launch of Project Safety Net+ and the Anchor Project.
We were also delighted to welcome the Mayor of the Borough of Great Yarmouth to the microphone, where he praised the work of Leeway and wished everyone an enjoyable evening.
We were lucky to have an excellent live performance from local band, The Fuzz, who have regularly performed at our Annual Ball and are very popular – as backed up by the busy dance floor!
There was also a fun casino table, an excellent raffle and an auction containing some fabulous prizes, including signed Norwich City shirts, West End theatre tickets, signed football boots and much more!
As well as this, we played our fun “Heads or Tails” game, with a cash prize for the winning person.
We would like to thank EKS Living Clean for kindly sponsoring the event, and Florentina Events for providing the incredible catering, as well as the Mayor of the Borough of Great Yarmouth for choosing Leeway’s ball as a civic event. A big thank you also goes to The Fuzz, for their excellent performance and continued support of Leeway, as well as the many businesses and organisations that donated raffle or auction prizes.
A final thank you goes to our amazing supporters, whose dedication allows us to continue to hold fundraising events like this and helps us to raise funds to support those experiencing domestic abuse.
