On Saturday 21st March the Yorkshire Club held its popular Annual Spring Ball with the room full at the Met Hotel in Leeds.....
The guest enjoyed a scrumptious meal after which everyone played the traditional ‘heads n tails’ bingo. The winner of the super £200 prize was Mrs Burrow, whose husband donated two flights in his four seater plane in the auction! A raffle was then held where the top prizes included amongst others a 40" 3D TV and a mini ipad.
There were some great auction items donated for the night, which included a Fortnum & Mason Hamper from EJ Lidster Construction, which raised an amazing £1600, a steam train ride including dinner from Alan Wright, which raised £800 and a Swarovski necklace, which raised £700 from Watts Associates Auctioneers.
Colin & John, of Watts Associates, once again held the auction, with one of their guests Craig Revell of Morgan Leyan purchasing almost half the auction items on offer!!
Bill Hill, the Charity’s Chief Executive, was special guest along with his Wife Sarah. They were thoroughly entertained by the auctioneers on their table and were so impressed with the auction we believe that Bill has requested their presence at the National Summer Ball. Bill accepted a donation cheque on behalf of the charity from the Yorkshire Club for an amazing £25,000. Well done to all the ‘team’ for all their efforts in 2014.
After the formal proceedings came to an end the disco started and continued until the early hours, where shoes were kicked off for a long night of dancing!
Thanks to everyone who supported the event and in doing so helped raise a tremendous £10,055.50!
