The Winter Ball for Freetown with UK Charity Street Child

Now here’s an opportunity, in SEEN’s opinion, to enjoy a cracking night out in support of a good cause. Join UK Charity Street Child on 18th November at Bloomsbury Big Top for a night of fine dining, stunning entertainment and a chance to support those affected by the recent catastrophic flooding and mudslides in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Set in the stunning Bloomsbury Big Top, Street Child Winter Ball for Freetown will feature fine wines, a three-course dinner and an exciting line-up of entertainment. With live music, an exclusive auction and a DJ set to end the night on, this is a fantastic evening to start the festive season all whilst supporting some of the poorest and most vulnerable children and families in Sierra Leone. Funds raised on the evening will be used to support those affected by the recent, catastrophic flooding and mudslides in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Street Child was the first major agency to launch an appeal following these shocking events, and has been a leader in the humanitarian response ever since. The charity has provided over 50,000 emergency food packages, including clean water, and provided clothing to over 5,000 people.

Proceeds from the Winter Ball will go towards providing continuing emergency relief and long-term recovery support to the victims of the Sierra Leone mudslides and underpin Street Child’s vital wider work for children and their families across Freetown’s poorest and most vulnerable communities.

Further information about the comedians, musicians and celebrities from the UK, Sierra Leone and elsewhere, who will be supporting the Street Child Winter Ball, will be announced closer to the time.
