Prestigious charity ball returns to Swindon in 2022

Prospect Hospice’s popular Full Length and Fabulous charity ball, hosted by singer and entertainer Jonathan Wilkes, is making a welcome return in 2022.

After having to cancel its fundraising ball in 2020 to celebrate its 40th anniversary because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the charity has announced it will be going ahead on Saturday 14 May 2022 at the STEAM Museum, Swindon, at 7pm and tickets are now on sale.

Sheryl Crouch, head of income at Prospect Hospice, said: “We’re really looking forward to holding our charity ball in 2022 after a break of two years and we’d love our supporters to join us. It will be a James Bond themed ball with first-class entertainment, fine dining and a chance to win fabulous prizes in our auction and raffles, including a piece of diamond jewellery donated by Deacons jewellers in Old Town, Swindon.”

Sheryl added: “We’ve had businesses and their employees, families and friends of patients cared for by the hospice attending our balls in the past, so if you’re looking for a fantastic night out with colleagues, family or friends you really don’t want to miss our Full Length and Fabulous Ball. You’ll also help make a real difference to the lives of local people needing our care.”

Tickets for the ball are £80 per head or £800 for a table of ten. To book your place email SherylCrouch@prospect-hospice.net or call 01793 816159.

Soha Housing

 

Beat the January blues with a bit of free creative fun!

 

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Soha Housing, the association is running a series of free creative writing workshops with the aim of bringing communities together. ‘Playing with Words’ is genuinely for anyone who lives anywhere where there are any Soha . On the afternoon of Wednesday 19 January, the roadshow comes to SN6!

 

Led by Kevin Campbell Davidson of The KCD Collective the workshop will encourage creativity on the theme of ‘community’ in poetry, prose or music. It will culminate in a gala evening in July 2022 at Didcot’s Cornerstone Arts Centre and those who wish to work something up with Kevin are welcome to perform if they wish. People have come to the workshops already held for lots of reasons – to learn a new skill, to take part in a free social activity or to get to know your neighbours.

 

There will be further mentoring, again all free, for anyone who would like to work up a piece for performance, or just continue exploring newly-found talent. Please find out more by calling 0800 014 15 45 (Freephone) and asking for Andrea or Liz, or by emailing ri@soha.co.uk. The invitation can be extended in other languages, too, so please spread the word to include as many participants as possible!
