On Friday 23 June up to 600 grocery colleagues attended the picturesque Honourable Artillery Company Gardens for the GroceryAid Summer Ball.
The evening was a huge success, and shined a light on the generosity of the industry with those attending raising more than £185,000. These funds will enable GroceryAid to provide 616 much needed respite breaks to those undertaking caring responsibilities.
On a beautiful summer evening entertainment included; funfair attractions, magicians, tombola and goody bags, live music from The Hares and much more. On the night the £20 Draw saw one lucky winner take home a brand new Vauxhall Viva. The winning ticket was drawn by BBC Radio’s legendary DJ, Trevor Nelson who then kicked off his DJ set in front of a crowded dance floor.
Our grateful thanks go to all the companies who kindly donated product and prizes for the evening and to the volunteers from Mars Chocolate UK for their invaluable help in running the tombola. We would also like to extend our thanks to all sponsors, in particular our major sponsors; Asda, KP Snacks, Kraft Heinz Inc, Lucozade Ribena Suntory, Mars (UK), Mondelez International, Nestlé UK Ltd, Palmer and Harvey McLane Ltd, Weetabix Ltd and Wrigley Company Ltd Group, without whom the evening would not have been possible.
