Saturday 17th June saw the return of Notts County FC Football in the Community’s [FITC] Annual Charity Ball at the East Midlands Conference Centre.
Brimming with local talent, guests from across Nottingham were wined, dined and entertained by musical acts Swing Gitan, Ed James, Daisy Godfrey and The Shakes. TV’s very own magician Roy Bond accompanied MC Colin Slater MBE as they charmed the guests to raise a whopping £5198.51 on the night. With donations still increasing, our final amount raised will be confirmed across our media channels in due course. All money raised on the night and through your donations will be in aid of FITC and the 37 projects the FITC operate across all 20 city wards. FITC uses the event to continue to raise the charity’s profile, celebrate its life-changing work and raise funds for its ongoing work with vulnerable and disadvantaged communities. FITC continue to enhance and enrich the lives of thousands of people across the county and further afield, catering for needs local people of all ages, abilities, disabilities, cultures and backgrounds.
Partnerships and Events Executive James Bromley said: “To come into Football in the Community I was amazed at the work we do in our community. To celebrate our successes with those who, like myself are new to the charity to those who have supported our work for over 25 years was an amazing experience. With the Bakewell Ramble, The Robin Hood Marathon and our CEO Sleep out coming up very soon, 2017 has been a fantastic year for the FITC team so far and long may that continue.”
Community Director Steve Hill describes the event: “This year’s charity ball was another fantastic success! On behalf of myself and the team at FITC, I would like to thank everyone from the performers, to those in attendance, our charitable partners who kindly donated and to everyone who put their hand in their pocket and came up trumps for us on the night. Your continued support enables us to provide our award winning projects across the county for the benefit the community we live and operate in.”
