Charity ball smashes target

A team of property law experts are still on a high after their first ever charity ball at the weekend collected almost £13,000 for two local causes.

The event, organised by Alexander Grace Law, saw 250 guests dressed in their finery as they enjoyed the evening’s entertainment at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel and Spa.

The ball was held to raise money for Pendleside and East Lancashire Hospices and a grand total of £12,796.76 was collected through ticket sales, music bingo, raffle and auction.

Alexander Grace Law, on the Network 65 Business Park, was set up by directors James Young and Donnamarie Sturrock, both of who have worked locally for over 10 years, specialising in Property Law and accumulating over 22 years’ experience in their field.

James said: “We felt the ball would be a good way to bring together friends and colleagues while raising money for two worthy charities and it was certainly worth the effort from all involved.

“We were truly blown away by the support and generosity of our guests and all those who donated raffle and auction prizes. The winner of our music bingo even asked to auction off the hot tub he won on the night, which was very touching and added to the pot.”

Donnamarie added: “Everyone at Alexander Grace Law has played a vital role in organising the ball and we each felt a real sense of pride on Saturday.

“We smashed our fundraising target for the evening and look forward to handing over the cheques to both hospices in order for them to carrying on doing the amazing work they do for the areas of Pendle, Burnley and Blackburn.

“We’re already talking about the second Alexander Grace Law ball and how we can top our target next year.”
