The headline partners for the care sector’s biggest fundraising event have been confirmed for 2020.
Specialist care provider, CareTech, and independent grant-making foundation, the CareTech Foundation, will once again throw their weight behind the Care Sector Fundraising Ball.
The event, which last year raised £200,000 for the Care Workers’ Charity and Alzheimer’s Society, was first established in 2018.
The headline partners have sponsored the Ball since its inception and their combined support represents a £30,000 contribution to the event.
Haroon Sheikh, CEO of CareTech, said: “As a leading provider of social care for young people and adults with learning disabilities, we take our responsibility to the communities we serve very seriously.
“The Ball provides an excellent opportunity for us to support two powerful charitable causes close to our hearts and we look forward to this year’s event raising even more funds for them.”
Jonathan Freeman, CEO the CareTech Foundation and vice-chair of the Ball Organising Committee, said: “Over the last couple of years, the Care Sector Ball and the organising committee have shown just how much this event can achieve, raising desperately needed funds for the care sector.
“The Ball is a perfect opportunity, not just to support these deserving charities, but also to take a moment to recognise the outstanding work of the UK’s care workers. I’m very pleased that we’re able to support it as it enters its third year and I’m confident that the Ball will continue to be a real success. ”
This year’s Care Sector Fundraising Ball will take place in London on September 26.
