Living behind a Mask
Health-on-Line to hold Masquerade Ball at new Hilton hotel in Bournemouth, raising money for local food bank charity, Hope For Food.
Local insurance company, Health-on-Line, are inviting businesses to help support them in raising money for Hope For Food, by attending a Masquerade Charity Ball at the Hilton Hotel, Bournemouth on the 30th January, 2016. The event, aimed at Directors and Senior members of staff, will not only be a fantastic networking opportunity, but also include a Charity Auction, with some outstanding prizes up for grabs.
Hope for Food, founded in 2012, aim to provide life’s basic essentials to those in need. Running three soup kitchens a week throughout the local area, they also stock food items, clothes, shoes and bedding, all donated by local supporters. With an estimated 13 million people in the UK living below the poverty line, and the number of people using food banks set to rise by 19%, it is clear the extent of the need, which Health-on-Line hope that local businesses will join forces to help address.
Fiona Carter, Brand & Marketing Manager at Health-on-Line explains more behind the event,
“It is all too common to live behind a mask everyday –particularly amongst those in need. It may be trying to put on a brave face, in the midst of adversity, whether that is through lack of food, shelter or clothing – which often can be through little fault of their own. We hope that as a local community, through this event we can support Hope For Food, through the vital work that they do – which may impact all of us at some point”.
Health-on-Line are also looking for local businesses to donate prizes to be auctioned off during the event, in return for publicity throughout the event. Tickets to attend the event are available at £65, which include a 3 course dinner, charity auction and entertainment.
This initiative falls under the Company’s ongoing CSR programme which has been put in place to support local community and charities. The programme has included sponsorship of under 9’s football team Dexters, the support of community project, Shore Ideas and the raising of vital funds for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, Mosaic, Julias House, Busy Bees Nursery, Diverse Abilities and Lewis Manning Hospice.
