Age UK Royal Sapphire Ball – Friday June 9th 2017
Sleigh & Story are proud to sponsor a number of local charities. It’s a great feeling to give a little back to the community!
On 9th June we took a group of clients and friends to the Age UK Royal Sapphire Ball which was held at Bertie’s Banqueting Rooms in Elland. Sleigh & Story attend this regularly and it is a major annual fundraising event for the charity. The dress code was ‘wear something blue’ – the connection with Sapphire blue and the celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s Sapphire Anniversary of 65 years on the throne. For this reason it was a very sparkly event!
After a welcoming drinks reception everyone sat down and enjoyed a tasty 3 course meal. Following the meal there was a silent auction of some interesting pieces. A hamper, signed England cricket bat, an exclusive preview of the Piece Hall, T20 Yorkshire v Lancashire tickets and a full car valet were amongst the generously donated prizes.
To bring some light entertainment to the evening “heads & tails” and “spin the bottle” were also on the agenda – all in the name of fundraising! The evening ended with entertainment from Rich Daniels and dancing until midnight! A marvellous evening enjoyed by all who attended and more importantly an evening of money-raising for a fantastic charity.
