We are raising funds for the Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and are planning a fabulous Black Tie and Tiaras Charity Ball.

The Black Tie & Tiaras Charity Ball

The event will take place at the Holiday Inn, Royal Victoria in Sheffield on the 3rd February 2018 in the stunning ballroom. You can shake your stuff on the dance floor, gamble at the fun casino and indulge in a fabulous three course meal with friends and family. The bar will be open until 1am, so what better way to end dry January than to dig out your posh frocks and tuxedo and go to the ball?

Breaking news: Silent auction

Following previous feedback, and given some of the incredible items we have had donated for the event, we will be running a silent auction. This is going to be a pretty basic affair with just a few items and we will be starting bidding online immediately.

On the evening, we will provide forms for anyone who wishes to make a bid, and will also indicate what the current highest bid is at that time. Whoever offers the highest amount on their bidding form will win the item (subject to a minimum reserve being met). Here are the first two items which I was pretty excited about and hopefully you will be too.

Even if you are not blown away by the items, if you know of anyone who might be interested in bidding please share this and allow them the opportunity to bid. Online bidding will close at 5pm on 3rd February.

Silent auction item one

Authentic signed Manchester United ball donated by MUFC, and presented in a beautiful display case. A letter of authenticity will also be provided after the event. To place a bid, simply put the amount you would like to bid in the comments below.

Silent auction item two

Boxing glove signed by the British Olympic team that went to Rio. I am pretty excited by this considering the successes of the British boxing team!!

Silent auction item three

Continuing the sports theme, item number three is a golf four ball at Owston Hall. The 18 hole championship golf course was previously the host venue for the EuroPro tour.

The Owston Hall website describes the course as follows:

“Covering 6937 yards, the par 72 course features mature oak trees and water features to challenge golfers of all standards. The golf course is set in over 200 acres of mature parkland, with large oaks and water hazards making the course both enjoyable to play whilst at the same time challenging. The feature hole is the 10th a par 4, 284-yard hole which requires a carry over two carefully placed ponds before playing up to the green which is overlooked from the conservatory of the 18th century Owston Hall.”

 If you fancy your chances of a hole in one get bidding.

If you wish to bid for any of the items, please specify the item and the amount in the comments below. Good luck.


Tickets are priced at £50 per head or £450 for tables of ten. Online tickets will incur booking and credit card fees of around 7% (Sheffield arena charges 11.5%!!) but you can pay the organisers direct by cheque or bank transfer if you prefer.

  4. Wow, that’s amazing that you’re going to climb Kilimanjaro! I’d love to do it someday, too. I’m a little far away in Canada to attend your event, but if I lived closer I’d go! Good luck!

    All the best for the charity Ball. I am sure it will be a grand success, given the cause for which it is being done. Will be looking out for your posts about the event as well as your Kilimanjaro adventure.

  6. Sounds a great way to fundraising and helping a charity, wish for a successful event and goid luck on your climb to Kili.

  7. What a great idea to support meaningful project! And I guess Kilimanjaro is on wish list of many people.

  8. This sounds like a good charity fund raisier. How is it going booking wise? Hope all goes well with the event.

    • It’s hard work but s lot of fun. I’m hoping to meet minimum numbers in the next few weeks so I can sleep again. Do you fancy a trip to sheffield? It’s got a lot of fabulous things to see!

  9. I did the Kilimanjaro 3 years ago and I would never do it again. In fact, I wish I would have spent that money on a nice beach vacation. Raising money for a great cause is a wonderful thing to do, so I think you are doing the right thing. Best of luck with the climb!

  11. It seems like you are well looked after for your £50 due to everything that’s included. Also with being able to book a whole table, you can get a group of friends to join. Sounds like a great night.

  12. My girlfriend is just back from Kilimanjaro and she has many stories from the trip. From what she said, the final climb is the hardest but it’s so worth it when you get to the top. Great cause and good luck!

    • Thanks David. Did your girlfriend make it to the top? The last day is definitely a killer at 12-16 hours but at least there will be my wine at the hotel to look forward to
