Business against Poverty is a local community of business people who care about the issues of poverty and ethical standards. They are taking action through their charity People against Poverty, based in Trowbridge.
Founders Val and Bill Huxley are hosting their annual Diamond Ball at Bailbrook House Hotel on Saturday November 5. Bailbrook House have been event sponsors for the last five years and the evening offers a sparkling reception, three course meal, petit fours and after dinner coffee. There’s also four bottles of wine on each table.
The evening provides a great opportunity to find out more about the charity and its work, including the chance to network with like-minded people and businesses. Business against Poverty is encouraging businesses and individuals to come together and celebrate as a pre-cursor to Christmas celebrations.
Caroline Crawford of Gooseberry Bush Day Nursery said: “The Business against Poverty annual ball is a night of glamour, bidding, laughter, dancing and fun! A night not to be missed, for such a worthy cause.”
There will be an auction on the night, with lots including a week in a Spanish villa for 10 people, a 45-minute flight in a private plane and a £500 travel voucher from Monster Travel. The charity is still appealing for auction lots and raffle prizes, if you can help please contact them on the details below.
Ball tickets are £75 per person or £750 for a table of 10. To find out more and to book visit: www.businessagainstpoverty.com/events/diamond-ball/ or call 01225 718920.
