Our Winter Ball 2020 is on Saturday 7 November, at The Hilton Reading and it is our SIXTH year! This unique fundraising and networking event for organisations working on disability issues in Reading involves Autism Berkshire, Parenting Special Children, Green Health Thames Valley, The Engine Shed, Rivertime Boat Trust, Berkshire Vision, the Innowalk Appeal for The Avenue Special School and the Berkshire MS Therapy Centre – as well as the organisers Stepping Forward.

Raffle tickets are available from all the above charities NOW to win £1,000 of John Lewis vouchers in the Winter Draw which will take place on the night of 7 November. Tickets are £1 each and funds go directly to the charity selling the ticket!

Guests can enjoy a welcome glass of bubbly at the Winter Ball, a three course meal and entertainment provided by covers band Love2Groove.  An auction will take place on the night, alongside the raffle with £1,000 of John Lewis vouchers as the main prize.

Tickets are £45 from Stepping Forward or from the participating charities.

The Winter Ball event came about because individually most local disability charities do not have the capacity to put on a large scale event such as a Ball. By coming together, with the generous support this year of the companies and Foundations listed below, we are able to hold an enjoyable event that raises substantial funds for organisations that are experiencing a severe shortage of resources.
