Have a Ball this Summer

Laura Ballard and her team at Torquay’s Toorak Hotel, part of the TLH group, are busy putting the final touches to a fabulous summer ball that the hotel is hosting in aid of the Torbay Holiday Helpers Network.  This fun, summer event includes a sumptuous 3-course meal and entertainment, all with a summer holiday theme and will be held on Friday 30 August, starting at 7pm.

The line-up includes Chris Chaplain, Steve Laister and great gypsy swing band, Hammer & Isaacs.  The THHN gives free holidays to families who have seriously ill and bereaved children, recently bereaved families, couples who have lost a child and to families who have a terminally parent.  Founder Luke Tillen recently announced his plans to build a bungalow so that families with high care needs, that the charity cannot currently provide for, can also get the chance to have a break on the beautiful English Riviera.  It was these plans that Laura read about and that inspired her to put this event on.

Brian Lewis, THHN Fundraising Manager said “We’re really looking forward to this event.  The whole team will be there and we’re in the mood for a summer party.  We’re so grateful to Laura and her team for all their hard work and hope that as many people as possible will come along, say hello and join in the fun.”  He added “The menu and line-up is great and, at just £30 a ticket, it’s great value for money.”  The aim of the evening is to raise enough money to equip the new THHN bungalow with a family bathroom containing all the special equipment required.

Tickets are available from the Toorak Hotel reception or phone 01803 400400. For more information on the Torbay Holiday Helpers Network visit www.thhn.co.uk
