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.”
