Wisbech Grammar School Michaelmas Ball raises £4,500 for ShelterBox
The ball hosted by parent committee, Friends of Wisbech Grammar School, proved to be a great success.
The school’s new multi-million pound refectory, Skelton Hall, took on a winter wonderland feel as guests enjoyed champagne, and live music from the band ‘Red, Hot and Blue’.
A delicious four course dinner, catered by the school’s kitchen, was served by sixth form pupils.
Chair of the Friends Committee, Louise O’Connor said, “The evening would not have been possible without the support of a whole range of people within and outside school, our sponsors and the hard working committee.
“A magnificent sum of £4,500 was raised for the charity ShelterBox enabling them to provide vulnerable families with the emergency shelter and vital equipment they need to survive in disaster zones across the world.”
ShelterBox provide emergency shelter and vital supplies to support communities overwhelmed by disaster and humanitarian crisis around the world.
