Harbour Place Annual Fundraising Dinner 2018!
Reserve yourself a table for a great fun evening where you can help raise funds for a very important cause. We are pleased to confirm that our Annual Fundraising Dinner will again take place at the Humber Royal Hotel on Thursday 15th November. Come along and enjoy a three course meal, auctions, games, a raffle and some great entertainment!
It has been a busy and challenging year for Harbour Place and the Annual Fundraising Dinner is more important than ever. Last year’s event was well attended and raised important funds that allowed us to help rough sleepers and others in severe hardship in our area. Our Night Shelter pilot project proved to be a great success in assisting more people than ever off the streets in the past year. However, despite this great work, the number of rough sleepers has increased as economic conditions and changes to benefits severely impacts those most in need.
Our new premises at Hope Street, with a new full time Night Shelter facility in operation now enables us to accommodate 15 people per night and for 365 nights a year. This new service allows us to also work with people and support them through the process to find permanent accommodation. Whilst we have significant funding assistance for this project, fundraising is still vital to fill the gaps between funding and running costs.
We hope that you can join us for a great evening where you can help raise funds for a very important cause.
Entertainment on the night
Our main entertainment this year will be provided by Comedy Magician John Archer. John was the first magician to successfully fool the world famous Penn and Teller on their TV show and is just completing a tour supporting Tim Vine. The link to John’s video below shows how John is a master of engaging with his audience. A wonderful mix of making you laugh and astonish you with his tricks.
