AbleChildAfrica’s 6th Annual Gala: A Celebration of Sport

Thank you Gala guests!

A special thank you to all who came to our 6th Annual Gala: A Celebration of Sport. It was an incredible evening filled with stories of the children we’ve worked with, brilliant entertainment, all topped off with an amazing fundraising total of over £39,000.

The 6th Annual Gala in association with Azad Ayub Ltd. took place on Thursday 10th November at the Grange City Hotel. With an exclusive opportunity to be photographed with authentic Rio 2016 and London 2012 O lympic torches, we kicked off the evening in style!

Our Youth Ambassador and UN Young Leader, Anthony Ford Shubrook, opened the order of events with a moving speech, after which our guests were kept entertained by our wonderful supporter and MC for the night, Robert Tennant. Special thanks go out to Martin Clarkson, Cherrie Elle and Anne Wafula Strike MBE, for speaking and providing invaluable support for us throughout the evening. The incredible amount raised on the night truly will enable us to continue our work with disabled children and we could not be more grateful to not only the people in the room on the night, but also the people who kindly donated prizes and offered their services to us to make the night possible.
