Inaugural Fundraising Ball

We are thrilled to invite you to our Inaugural Ball at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel on Saturday 2nd March 2019.  The Black Tie event includes a 3 course meal, amazing raffle (including a £500 jewellery voucher), an auction with some exciting lots such as dinner with David Lloyd and an exclusive behind the scenes Coronation Street tour with the only remaining original cast member!  There will also be live music and a disco into the small hours.  At only £40 per head, this is a fantastic opportunity to dress up to the nines and enjoy an exciting evening of fun and entertainment.  The Dunkenhalgh have agreed a room rate of £80 for the night, including breakfast.  If you would like to book a room please let them know that you are attending the ball.

On top of all of that, you will be helping us to raise vital funds to enable us to continue providing the range of projects and initiatives that we run for young people in Hyndburn. 

We have received 72 referrals to work with young people who are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming so in the last 12 months.  Our Youth Homeless Worker works tirelessly to ensure that these young people are supported either to remain in the family home or into supported accommodation as well as providing ongoing support to enable them to sustain those choices.  We offer a one-to-one mentoring service, run by our amazing volunteers and offering support for a whole range of issues faced by local young people.  Our volunteers also help to staff our web chat service, offering an anonymous and confidential lifeline to any young person suffering with their mental health.  Alongside of this, we run a range of prevention and early intervention packages in schools and are now training up Mental Health Champions in each of the secondary schools in Hyndburn to allow schools to offer peer to peer support for their students.  You can find out more about our work and our beneficiaries on our website:

The Ball is part of our fundraising plan for this year and we’re using it as an opportunity to promote an amazing commitment from local man Paul Breaks, who is running the Marathon De Sables in April to raise funds for us.  You can read more about Paul and this gruelling marathon here:
