Our Winter Ball 2020 (the sixth!) was due to take place on Saturday 7 November, at The Hilton Reading but was cancelled due to COVID-19. We went ahead with our raffle with 9 local disability organisations; we raised £4565 – our greatest total to date from the raffle!

The winning tickets were: 00127, 11541 and 00378
Thank you to everyone for taking part. Stepping Forward itself raised £700 from the Draw which will go towards the Disability Hub project. We are delighted to support local charities with this annual initiative and extend our HUGE THANKS to The David Brownlow Foundation and Bennetts Commercials for their support for the prizes this year. 


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.
