Seashell Trust Spring Ball has Wonderland theme

Seashell Trust

Seashell Trust is holding its Spring Ball at Hilton Manchester Deansgate on Friday, May 5.

The glittering event is the biggest annual fundraiser for the charity which cares for and educates some of the most profoundly disabled children in the country at its national centre of excellence in Cheadle Hulme.

This year’s theme is Seashell in Wonderland and in-keeping fundraiser Jo Barber said: “We would love donations of cups and saucers to give our guests a real Mad Hatter’s tea party vibe at this wonderful Wonderland venue.

“Jump down the rabbit hole with us and as our charity is based in Cheshire we hope plenty of our supporters will be leaving with grins at least as wide as the Cheshire Cat’s smile after our always spectacular raffle and auction.”

Starting with a drinks reception at 7pm on the mezzanine, followed by a sumptuous four-course dinner served in the Deansgate Suite, guests get to hear from one of the Seashell families about what the charity means to them.

Tickets are £80 each or £750 for a table of 10.

To book tickets, have donations for prizes or suitable crockery please contact Jo Barber on 0161 610 0100 or
