Business showcase returns to Winter Gardens

The annual North Somerset Business Club Charity Ball will return to the Winter Gardens in Weston-super-Mare this year, with the event set to take place on Saturday October 13.

Every year the ball, which is now in its 14th year, raises money for local charities and good causes.

The ball also recognises business talent through its Sian Lloyd Jones Business awards, which honour businesses based in North Somerset.

Last year the business awards were held on the Grand Pier and raised £5,500 for charity.

The scheme is run by North Somerset Enterprise Agency and are co-sponsored by the Economic Development Service at North Somerset Council.

Angela Hicks, Chief Executive of North Somerset Enterprise Agency comments: “Every year the charity ball provides a wonderful opportunity for business people to get together and enjoy an evening of awards, dancing and socialising and in doing so raise much-needed charity funds.

“All businesses and organisations are welcome and we’d urge anyone who would like to support and be part of the business community to come along and join us.”

Tickets for the ball, including a four-course meal and dancing, cost £37.50 per person and corporate tables are available.

Tickets and further information are available from Hazel Wintle at North Somerset Enterprise Agency on 01934 418118 or by emailing
