Over £65,000 raised for The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal to date!
The Warwickshire Poppy Ball is a black tie event that takes place on Saturday 2nd November 2019 at the Crowne Plaza, Stratford-upon-Avon, on the banks of the River Avon.
The event raises money for The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, which in turn supports members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families.
Through a range of services The Royal British Legion ensure that members of the Armed Forces community receive the support they need, from rehabilitation courses to careers advice for those leaving Service. They are committed to helping the nation understand the importance of Remembrance to make sure sacrifices from conflicts old and new are never forgotten.
Tickets are now available for this year’s ball and can be booked through the website or by contacting the committee by email or by phone on 01926 650484.
Guests will enjoy a sparkling drinks reception followed by a four course dinner with half a bottle of wine per person. During dinner the auctioneer takes to the floor and guests are invited to bid on one of the many lots available. For those who prefer a more sedate bidding experience a silent auction and raffle also run during the evening. After dinner everyone takes to the dance floor to dance through to the early hours.
2014 saw the return of the Warwickshire Poppy Ball, after a rest period of eight years. The event used to run annually but in 2006, after 20 years the event was rested. 2014 being the centenary of World War 1 seemed a fitting time to resurrect the event and it was a huge success. Since its relaunch, the event has raised over £65,000 for The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
All work associated with the organisation of this event is done voluntarily by the committee. Should you like to receive further information or discuss the advertising and sponsorship opportunities available please contact one of the committee members whose details are on the contacts page.
