money raised at last week’s event will touch the lives of over 9,000 young people

The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) held its 18th annual charity ball in aid of children’s charity, NSPCC ChildLine, on Friday 20th October 2017 at The InterContinental Hotel in London. The event was generously sponsored by Access Group.

The night raised a grand total of £37,000 for the NSPCC, which will have a significant impact on the support that the charity is able to offer vulnerable children and young people.

As always, the Charity Ball was themed, with this year’s guests transported to Miami Beach in the 1980s for an evening of fine food, drink and entertainment. Guests arrived to a champagne reception, sponsored by 6CATS and Nasstar, and after dinner enjoyed parting under the disco ball, karaoke, a casino (sponsored by giant) and a vodka luge (courtesy of 360 Group). All guests left with a Miami Beach themed goodie bag packed with donations.

Guests generously donated through pledge forms, a live auction, a silent auction, a raffle and a lucky dip. Broadbean Technology also sponsored the 13th annual Champagne Diamond Draw where the lucky winner, Martina West from Westtek, scooped a pair of 2ct pink diamond earnings.

Commenting on the event, APSCo CEO, Ann Swain, said:

“I’d like to thank everybody who attended this year’s Charity Ball for once again making the event a huge success. I’m sure you will agree that we all had a fantastic evening in aid of a very worthy cause.”

“The APSCo Annual Charity Ball is the jewel in the crown of our event calendar. In recent years our generous members have helped us to raise in excess of £1.6 million for the NSPCC ChildLine charity – a sum that has no doubt helped change the lives of many vulnerable children and young people through its free, confidential 24-hour counselling service.”

“Thank you to all our guests, sponsors and donors, for digging deep and giving so generously. All money donated on the night will go directly to the NSPCC where I’m sure it will touch the lives of the children and young people who need it most. It costs just £4 to answer a call from a child in crisis – which means that money raised at last week’s event will touch the lives of over 9,000 young people. APSCo members should be incredibly proud of their ongoing contributions towards this absolutely vital service.”
