Making Memories… Giving Hope

Tickets now available for CHICKS Memory Makers' Ball


Tickets are now on sale for CHICKS Memory Makers’ Ball which will be held at London’s iconic Waldorf Hotel and is proudly supported by consumer delivery specialist Hermes UK.

The evening, to be held on Thursday 22 November, will be a celebration of the incredible difference CHICKS is able to make to the lives of children and young people across the UK, and will help to raise vital funds needed to sustain the charity’s services.

Every year CHICKS provides free-of-charge respite breaks to more than 800 children and young people who are living in difficult circumstances; many have full time caring responsibilities, are struggling with the effects of bullying or abuse or living in poverty.

A child who recently attended a break at CHICKS’ Coastal Retreat in Cornwall said: “We are having the time of our lives!”

Organisers hope the Memory Makers’ Ball will help to raise funds for and awareness of the charity’s efforts to make a difference to the lives of more children across the UK.

CHICKS Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Dean, explained: “To ensure we can say yes to as many children as possible in desperate need of a respite break, we must raise a minimum of £1.7 million every year.

“We believe children deserve to make happy and positive childhood memories so our breaks offer five days of much-needed, free-of-charge relief for children living in heart-breaking circumstances.

“The CHICKS Memory Makers’ Ball is a night to celebrate the difference those who support CHICKS make to the lives of children across the UK while raising vital funds to support the running of our services.

Andrew added: “All that we do is only possible thanks to our generous supporters. Join us for an extraordinary evening to support extraordinary children."

CHICKS Memory Makers’ Ball will begin with a sparkling reception at 6.30pm followed by a three course meal and exclusive charity auction.

Martijn de Lange, CEO of Hermes UK, the event’s headline sponsor said: “CHICKS is a great cause and we’re very proud to call them our nominated charity partner.

“The Memory Makers’ Ball is a celebration of all of the hard work that has gone into helping make a difference to so many children’s lives this year and as a new partner to CHICKS, we’re looking forward to the evening, as well as continuing to provide support over the years to come.”

Tickets for individuals, pairs and group bookings are now available.
