The Westholme Association Ball

The ‘Purple Ball’, Ewood Park

The Annual Westholme Association Purple Ball was held once again at Ewood Park on Saturday 17th November.  Guests enjoyed a drinks &  canapés  reception provided by Northcote at the Rovers, followed by a  sumptuous  three course dinner.

Our ever-popular Limited Raffle was a huge success with guests vying to buy our sparkly  baubles  during the reception, to enable them to have a chance to win one of our four exquisite prizes: a  diamond  necklace, a bespoke silver bangle, an Italian designer lamp and a voucher for a facial  aesthetic  treatment.   Once again we achieved a fantastic array of prizes for our main raffle giving each table a chance to win a prize. Our sealed bid auction for tickets to watch the   “Strictly Come Dancing tour was as popular as ever. The ladies were treated to one of our Westholme hessian bags filled with goodies, and thanks to all who donated gifts.

On each table every guest was given one  of  our  fantastic  brochures, put together by our Chair, Carina Lamb and Anne Booth, and a massive thanks must go to all our advertisers, along with our printer Julian Pickford at Pioneer Print Solutions, for all his help and providing the Association  with all our printing needs.

The Guests then enjoyed an evening of dancing with the dance floor being as packed as ever, rounding off another  fantastic  event in our busy  calendar.

The Committee worked  tirelessly  in the run up to the Ball making this year another successful one. However, we cannot

achieve this alone, without all the kind donations and support from so many people, our fundraising efforts would not be possible.   We have raised in the region of £6000, another great start to our new fundraising year.
