Latimer Hinks' 8th Charity Ball Set for Success after Selling Out

The Latimer Hinks Team
A charity ball organised by one of Darlington and County Durhams longest established law firms, is proving to be a popular social highlight of the year after selling out its ticket allocation months in advance.

The Latimer Hinks 8th Charity Ball, which is being supported by HSBC, will take place on Friday, June 6 at Wynyard Hall, with a host of charities set to benefit from the evening.

St Teresas Hospice and the County Durham Foundation are the law firms main chosen charities, with a variety of smaller local charities also being supported. The firms last ball in 2013 managed to raise £8,500 for a number of charities, including the two charities chosen for 2014, The Soldiers Charity, Darlington Town Mission and Age UK.

International swing singer, Cole Page, will provide the evenings live entertainment along with magician David Penn.

Anne Elliott, partner at Latimer Hinks Solicitors, said: "I am delighted with the interest and support that we have received for this years charity ball which we are determined will be another great night. Since holding our first ball in 1998 we have raised over £55,000 for some fantastic causes, and we are looking forward to not only raising more money for charity but to providing our clients, colleagues and friends with another enjoyable event.

"St Teresas Hospice carries out excellent work in providing care and support to local people as does the County Durham Foundation in supporting local charitable causes. We want to raise more money for these and other local charities, and the positive response in terms of selling all the tickets bodes well. We have also received support in the way of donations and auction and other prizes from clients, colleagues and friends but we are still looking for more!

Latimer Hinks is also offering a number of sponsorship opportunities.

Anne added: "Sponsorship will guarantee extra local publicity for businesses and will also provide further funds for the charities.
