Making Memories… Giving Hope

Sambaing our way to £17,000!


Our Rio Samba Ball, held in Plymouth last November, raised an incredible £17,000! 

180 guests enjoyed a fantastic evening of entertainment and were greeted by the loud and lively samba rhythms of Samba Celtica! During the evening, guests were treated to a three course dinner, music from the South West Swing Collective, and even had the chance to try their luck at the casino tables! 

We were lucky enough to receive donations of incredible prizes from a number of companies, and the auction on the night raised £5135.05. The top prize was a 7 night holiday with CLC World Resorts and Hotels, which one lucky winner took away for £420! 

We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along on the night, and to everyone who made it possible, especially our volunteers from Santander Plymouth. We rely on generous donations in order to provide our vital respite breaks, and events like this help us to make a huge difference.
