“I would particularly like to extend a sincere thank you to our sponsors Re-Gen Waste Ltd. and Felix O’Hare for their invaluable financial contribution and to the Canal Court and McCaddens for their generous in-kind support, all of which will ensure that more money will go directly to our four charities who work so tirelessly throughout our district for vulnerable people and those in need”.

This glittering gala night promises to be a sophisticated evening of delicious food and drink, fantastic entertainment and excellent company.  Guests will be welcomed on arrival with a sparkling champagne reception sponsored by the Canal Court Hotel before being invited to sit for dinner.

Compare, Q Radio’s Kevin McAllister, will entertain guests throughout the night with plenty of quick wit and banter. No charity ball could end without dancing and guests will be unable to resist five piece band The Nooks’ unique blend of talent and charisma as they belt out everything from “hillbilly to hip hop”.
