The Mary Seacole Housing Association raised over £10,000 at it’s annual charity ball at the Auction House.
Over 450 guests attended the Motown themed fundraising event for the homeless organisation which has been operating services in Luton for nearly 30 years.
The charity enables young people to develop the skills they need to move from a state of dependence to being independent.
Elaine Cruise, Mary Seacole Housing Association’s training and events manager, said: “I am always really apprehensive at the beginning of the year when planning begins for the annual ball, funds are always limited and corporate sponsorship is the key component to making these events happen.
“Fortunately this year companies such as A-Plan Insurance, Keens Shay Keens, Pictons, Bartham Press Spicer & Co Accountants, Elmecom, Workflow Solutions and Support; all sponsored Mary Seacole which contributed largely to the event being a huge success.
“It was a delight to see so many people enjoying themselves.”
