Back With A Bang

9th November 2021

The Annual SPA Charity Ball came Back with a Bang at Grand Cafe on Thursday 4th November where over 180 property professionals enjoyed an evening of delicious food and dancing whilst raising money for Solent Mind.

The evening began with a drinks reception where property professionals from Southampton, Portsmouth and Bournemouth networked around the room and took note of the auction and raffle prizes that were on offer for the evening.

The evening started with Emma Bartlett, Chair of SPA addressing the property professionals with a speech welcoming guests back after the pandemic.

Zoe Hanson from the So So podcast was the compare for the evening announcing the Silent Auction winners.

There was much dancing to Ruby’s house band which was kindly sponsored by Gracelands.

A fantastic amount of £5,214 was raised for the charity Solent Mind and the committee would like to thank all the sponsors for their generosity in donating prizes for the raffle and auction.

Jo Silsbury from Solent Mind commented

"It was a pleasure to attend the SPA gala dinner and get back to in person fundraising. With the number of people accessing our services at Solent Mind having doubled in the last 2 years your support has never been more needed. Thank you for your amazing generosity and raising such an incredible amount of money in one evening. Improving digital access has been a priority for us recently and £5,214 could enable us to purchase 10 iPads for use within our children and young peoples service. These help with homework, access to support and sensory issues."
