“A NIGHT IN NEVERLAND” raises more than £3,000 for local charity

The eighth Colchester NSPCC Business Group’s Emerald Ball is a magical success


Colchester agency, KAT Marketing, in collaboration with the Colchester NSPCC Business Group, held their 8th Annual Emerald Ball on 21st November 2015 at Wivenhoe House Hotel, to much success.

Chairwoman of the NSPCC Business Group Katie Skingle said: “The evening was full of surprises and magic courtesy of Version Events and we had such great sponsors like West Property Management and Fisher Jones Greenwood – we couldn’t be more appreciative of their support. A wonderful night was had by all whilst raising over £3,000 for local projects of the NSPCC, via their Essex schools services.”

Adam Hildred, one of the guests at the Peter-Pan inspired evening said, “We love the Emerald Ball and have been on numerous years and it always has such fantastic theming and entertainment to such a high level. We always have such a great night out and to know that you are helping to raise monies to give back to the local children – why would we not go every year? The Group is looking for more committee members and I’m thinking about joining for 2016.”

Other sponsors for the event include Funky Sweets, Fuller Davies and Laura Rampton School of Dance.

“The NSPCC believes every child deserves a childhood.” continues Katie, “This really resonates with the theme we chose for the ball. The funds raised on the evening for the NSPCC Schools Service in Colchester and its surrounding areas will raise awareness of what abuse is, different kinds of abuse, how to identify it and how to get help. A very worthy local cause to support.”

Sarah Laffling, NSPCC’s Community Fundraising Manager said: “We are thankful and commend the Colchester NSPCC Business Group for supporting the good work of the NSPCC in their local community. KAT Marketing’s dedication to our cause is simply outstanding”.
