About this event

The Maggie Oliver Foundation is delighted to invite you to our Annual Fundraising Ball on Friday the 26th November 2021 at Hotel Football at Old Trafford.

With our incredible host Paul Crone, live entertainment from our amazing singer Hilary John, and a DJ to help us dance the night away, it’s certain to be an unmissable night!

 

Featuring a silent auction with some truly great lots, a private bar, a raffle, and a DJ until 1 am, we simply cannot wait to welcome everyone to our Annual Fundraiser and to see some familiar faces, including our wonderful founder Maggie Oliver.

Each ticket includes admission, three course meal and entertainment, for a donation of just £75 (plus booking fee). Alternatively, you may wish to purchase a whole table for 10 people, for the reduced total price of £650 (plus booking fee). Join us from 7pm for photographs and a meet and greet.

After 18 months in pyjamas, why not let your hair down, dust off your sparkly dancing shoes, don your favourite party dress and get ready for a fantastic night (and for our male guests, party frocks are not obligatory)! Our brilliant photographer Jennifer Hilton will be in attendance to capture all your special moments throughout the night.

 

 

All proceeds from the evening will go towards The Maggie Oliver Foundation, helping adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse turn their ‘pain into power’.

With your ongoing support, The Foundation has been able to launch our bespoke national phone support service for survivors, enabling those who need us to access ongoing individual support with one of our empathetic, compassionate, trained Ambassadors.

Our Foundation has already supported over 2500 survivors since 2019, and the numbers are growing every day. With your generous donations, The Foundation hopes to expand so we can help every survivor of childhood sexual abuse on their road to full recovery.

Please note, the venue is over 18 so please leave the little ones at home!

Disclaimer: In the event of government restrictions due to COVID-19 we will be able to offer full refunds for all customers who aren’t able to attend the rescheduled date. Currently we expect the event to go on as expected but we will inform you if anything changes.

 

We look forward to welcoming each and every one of you on the night, and offer our wholehearted thanks for your continued support and generosity. – The Maggie Oliver Foundation Team 💜
