**ASCOT CHARITY BALL 20TH MAY 2017 **
Welcome to the Ascot Charitable Trust!
The Ascot Charitable Trust was set up in 2002 to benefit both national and local charities, community groups and individuals with special needs, who live within the Ascot area. Our main fundraising event of the year is the Ascot Charity Ball. This is a prestigous black tie event held at the world famous Ascot Racecourse. To date the Trust has raised over £500,000 for a variety of charities and is exceptionally grateful to all our supporters for their amazing continued generosity.
Over the years the Ascot Charitable Trust has been delighted to provide entertainment by a number of fantastic celebrities and performers including Tony Hadley, Go West, String Fever and the Three Waiters. We have also been extremely lucky to have had Adjer Brown as our comedian auctioneer – always providing a light hearted approach to our fund raising activities.
The Ascot Charitable Trust would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who helped make our 2016 Ball such a success – cheques totalling in excess of £50,000 were presented to our chosen charities – Child Bereavement UK, Sebastians Action Trust and Thames Hospice.
We are very pleased to announce that our main national charity for 2017 is Prostate Cancer UK. Additionally we are supporting two local charities – Helen and Douglas House (children’s hospice) and East Berkshire MS Society. A fabulous evenings entertainment is being supplied by the Ratpack tribute.
If you would like to become involved with the Ascot Charitable Trust in anyway then please do contact us using the ‘Contact’ form provided or by emailing us – we would love to hear from you and answer any questions you may have about us. We have a number of sponsorship packages available on request and are always keen to partner up with local business in our attempts to support people less fortunate than ourselves.
