Bembridge Harbour Charity Ball
Bembridge Harbour Charity Ball - Saturday 18th September 2021
We are delighted that in 2021, our Charity Ball, once again in support of the Sophie Rolf Trust, KissyPuppy, will be hosted at Brading Haven Yacht Club.
Further details will be announced in the Spring, and as with all events currently being planned, will be subject to any Covid-19 restrictions in place at the time.
To get a feel for the event, have a look at the Image Gallery from 2019 - described below in brief:
The inaugural Bembridge Harbour Charity Ball was held on Saturday 21st September 2019 at Brading Haven Yacht Club. Guests were welcomed into a stunningly decorated clubhouse with a glass of bubbles and chocolate covered strawberries, followed by a sumptious 5-course dinner finished off with cheeses donated by the Isle of Wight Cheese Company and Briddlesford Farm and ships' decanters full of port.
The evening was all the more special for having with us Sophie's parents, Gemma and Aaron. Aaron gave a moving account of his family's journey and described the continuing work of the charity and its support of the Mountbatten Hospice in fundraising for the refurbishment of a building which will include bespoke facilities for children and their families (a first on the Island).
An Auction and Raffle were well supported, raising £1,655 of the total of over £2,100 raised on the night.
