Hereford college to host Phantom Ball
9:00am Monday 25th February 2013 in News
A HEREFORD college is set to host a Phantom Ball to celebrate its 140th birthday next month.
The Royal National College for the Blind is set to host a Phantom Ball to celebrate the charity’s 140th birthday next month.
The event on Friday, March 1, will see a twist on the traditional charity ball – by inviting people not to attend it.
Instead guests are asked to make a donation while being “spared a mass catered meal punctuated by long speeches” and the inconvenience of attending a formal event.
The charity is keen to focus resources and fund-raising income where it is needed, rather than on high profile but costly events.
Tickets not to attend the Phantom Ball cost £45 or £450 for a table of 10.
Money raised will go towards new equipment, transport fares and Braille tuition for students at the college to increase their independence and confidence.
