Nottingham based charity Double Impact is pleased to announce it will be hosting England’s first ever Recovery Ball.
The event will take place on Thursday 11 October at Nottingham City Council House, to raise funds and awareness of the issues surrounding drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
The alcohol free evening will feature special guest speakers, a charity auction, three-course gourmet dinner and non-alcoholic mocktail makers.
Richard Atkinson, the fundraising and communications co-ordinator for Double Impact said:
“We are excited to be hosting the country’s first ever Recovery Ball. As well as raising funds and awareness, we want to celebrate the achievements of individuals who are rebuilding their lives after the devastating consequences of substance misuse.
“Part of the Double Impact mission is to break down stigma in society and holding an event like this will bring together families, friends, service users and the community. Aside from having music, speakers, excellent food and a great evening, all the proceeds from the ball will go directly back to helping those in recovery.”
The Recovery Ball is receiving a great amount of help and support from local business people. Nottinghamshire shops, restaurants and suppliers are donating all the food and drink for the evening.
The Lambley Restaurant has designed the menu for the ball and will be providing the catering on the evening. Mark Anderson, owner of The Lambley said: “Double Impact is an incredible charity, the work that they carry out is vital to Nottingham and has a profound impact on the lives of so many people.
“We here at The Lambley are delighted to offer our expertise in assisting Double Impact host the Recovery Ball. So many local businesses have come together to offer support for the event, and their generosity has really helped make this event happen.”
The Recovery Ball has received help and donations from the following businesses:
The Lambley Restaurant, M&J Seafood, Robin Tuxford the Butcher, The Fruitbowl of Mapperley, Andy Bell, Rob Nekros and the Blue Shift.
