Emerald Ball proves a real jewel for the NSPCC


NSPCCS Emerald Ball reached new heights at The Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf Club and Spa. A glittering array of entertainment included stilt walkers, fire breathers, casino tables, a five-piece band and look-alike celebrities. With more than 100 guests in attendance, Hearts Sam Vangeen MCd the event before Peter Sleigh conducted the charity auction. The amount raised during the night was in excess of 4,000 and all proceeds went to the local Colchester projects of the NSPCC Childline Voice Appeal. Katie Skingle, chairwoman for the fundraising group, said: We are incredibly grateful to main sponsors AV Unit and The Stoke by Nayland Hotel for their kindness and generosity.
