The May Ball raises over £100,000

What a night! It was wonderful to see so many supporters on Saturday 14 May in The Grand Hall at Battersea Arts Centre having a good time and donating so generously. Guests enjoyed a sparkling drinks reception, 3 course dinner, and dancing to a live band, Truly Medley Deeply. 

Guest of honour local MP for Putney, Roehampton and Southfields Fleur Anderson paid tribute to Home-Start’s service.

Guests bid enthusiastically in the silent auction, sponsored by SDS London, which comprised more than seventy lots, generously donated by Home-Start Wandsworth’s supporters and local businesses. Prizes included a holiday in Turkey, unique artworks, bespoke beauty treatments, sports memorabilia and lots more.

We are extremely grateful to everyone who bought tickets or bid in the auction, helping us raise over £100,000. This is a phenomenal amount of money and will enable us to help prevent more local families slipping into crisis.

A special thank you to our trustee Linda Hayllar for her tremendous hard work in organising the evening with the support of Home-Start Wandsworth trustees and staff.
