Barrow Ball

The Barrow Community Trust held their annual Black Tie Charity Ball on Saturday the 30th of April.

130 guests attended the event at Abbey House Hotel. Among those guests, were businesses in Furness and local dignitaries such as the mayor of Dalton, Councillor Wendy Maddox and the high sheriff of Cumbria, Richard Lee.

The gala included a drinks reception and a three course meal. Guests were then entertained by the fabulous Barrow band Soul Survivors, who played music from the late 60s and early 70s. There was also an auction held with all money raised going to the Barrow Community Trust.

This year’s event raised a staggering £7,955, eclipsing last year’s total of £6,000. The Trust will have more money than ever to give to local organisations, making a real difference to Barrow’s communities.

Jen Collier, committee member of the Barrow Community Trust and organiser of the event said: “It was a very good evening. The total money is the most we’ve raised. It’s all for the local community groups which we help and for them to set up projects. There are lots of different things that we help with.”
