Start your festive celebrations with a night out at the Battersea Ball
Published: Friday, November 12, 2021
Tickets are now on sale for this year’s Battersea Ball – a chance to enjoy a fantastic night out while supporting an important local crime fighting charity.
The Battersea Ball helps raise funds to support many projects including the Battersea Summer Scheme which provides exciting opportunities that support and inspire young people in the area and keep them occupied during the school summer holidays.
The summer scheme is the principal project of the Battersea Crime Prevention Panel – a leading local charity that has been engaged in community initiatives in Battersea and Balham for the past 30 years.
The Battersea Ball is the charity’s main fundraiser and promises guests a superb three course meal combined with music, dancing and cabaret in an Apres themed black-tie event complete with snow, Christmas cheer, dodgems, casino tables and its famous magic tree.
The ball is being held at the London Evolution in Battersea Park on Wednesday, December 15 and tickets are now on sale £65pp.
Trustee and Joint Chair of the Battersea Ball Kate Meacock said: “Having been unable to hold the event last year (the first time in its near 30 year history) Battersea Crime Prevention Panel is delighted to be returning to London Evolution for what we know will be a fantastic night of celebration, cabaret, dancing and of course fund raising for this well-established, local charity.
“Battersea Crime Prevention Panel and its principal project Battersea Summer Scheme have been providing funding for a very wide variety of crime prevention and crime reduction initiatives in the Battersea and Balham areas for nearly 30 years.
“In that time we have supported mini buses for the police cadets and a local youth football club, a sandwich van for a start-up business providing local employment, mentoring and support sessions for young people and young parents, scam awareness lunches for the elderly, bike marking kits and residential courses and day trip places for young people within our community.
“More recently and in the midst of the covid pandemic we have worked with and supported all our local youth clubs and made a large grant to a local school to purchase computer equipment to allow their young people to continue their education whilst at home. We work closely with our local police, council, youth clubs and early intervention teams to help make Battersea and Balham safer places to live, work and play.
"We hope that as many people as possible from the local community and businesses will come and join us. Working together we can all make a difference.
