|As a company, we take our place in the community and our social responsibility seriously. Directors Katie Skingle and Claire Hunt are (respectively) Chairwoman and Treasurer of the Colchester NSPCC Business Group, formed in May 2008 to bring local businesses together to raise money for local children.||
Their most successful event has been the annual Emerald Ball, one of Colchester’s biggest fundraising events, which started in 2008, aiming to raise £5,000. It was a huge success, attracting more than 120 guests, entertaining them with casino tables, stilt walkers and an auction, as well as dinner and dancing, and beating its fundraising target.
The event is back on 13 November 2010, when it will take place in the Moot Hall in the centre of town, with the aim of raising £10,000 for the NSPCC. With 250 people attending, and catering by the renowned Lemon Tree restaurant, it promises to be a very special night.
