staithscharity17.jpg You shall go to the charity ball

The inaugural Staiths Charity Ball at The Hilton Hotel on the quayside promises all kind of wonders, namely a three-course dinner, complimentary drinks, live music, disco and roulette. Gonna be good!

I’m a sucker for swanky dos at swanky hotels, and this charity ball looks set to be one of THE events of the spring. The evening will kick off with a complimentary glass of fizz and then you can try your luck on the special roulette wheels where you may just bag yourself a laptop.

Live music will come courtesy of Hattie Murdoch (pictured), who we’ve spoken about in glowing terms in the magazine before. One of the finest singer/songwriters to come out of Newcastle in recent years she has a voice as pure as a mountain stream.

Your ticket will also include a three-course meal (with a bottle of wine for each couple), a DJ spinning tunes until 1am, and entry into a prize draw where you could win a 55” TV.

It’s all in aid of Making Winter Warmer (a community group dedicated to supporting the homeless) and the Children’s Heart Unit Fund.
