Report:

ICM Yorkshire & Ridings Branch host Charity Ball in aid of Prostate Cancer UK

Members of the ICM Yorkshire and Ridings Branch Committee organised a Charity Ball in aid of Prostate Cancer UK, which, was held at the Hilton Hotel in Leeds on Friday 16 May.  The night was a resounding success and guests raised a significant sum for Prostate Cancer UK.  Committee members, Alan Smith of HCE Group, David Scottow of DWF LLP and Jacqui Ross-Gibson of Polestar Group were instrumental in organising and promoting the event and secured the attendance of nearly 200 credit professionals, their friends from other professions and industry.  A great night was had by all.

The evening was billed as “Men United v. Prostate Cancer” to highlight the branches aim of raising funds for such a deserving cause and it also had a glamorous James Bond style “Casino Royale” theme to it.  Guests enjoyed 4 courses of fine dining and fine wine and were entertained by a trio and a live swing band, with members and guests drinking and dancing the night away into the early hours of Saturday morning.  A prize draw was held to increase the overall donations to the charitable cause and prizes were donated by members, their employers and local businesses.  Prizes included an iPad Mini, a case of wine, a photograph from Casino Royale signed by Daniel Craig himself and tickets to Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway at Leeds Arena and 7 day passes for Virgin Active Gyms.

The branch would like to thank everyone who contributed to the great success of the evening and look forward to planning a similar event for the future to build on the success of the evening.  Alan Smith, Chair of the Branch said: “I am pleased that everyone attending appeared to have a great time on the night.  The hard work of the organising committee in pulling this all together has paid off.  Ultimately, we have been able to make a significant donation to our chosen charity, Prostate Cancer UK.  I hope we can organise this as an annual event in future years as it is a great way to bring together credit managers and their supporters in the Yorkshire region.”
