Glasgow Charity Ball – in aid of our Charity

Bitterly cold winds were not enough to deter Scotland’s journalists and editors enjoying one of the most anticipated nights out in the media calendar.

The country’s finest talent descended on the Raddison Blu Hotel in Glasgow for the Journalists’ Charity Press Ball on March 3 – raising thousands of pounds for the cause.

A far cry from the newsroom, it was an evening of decadent food, dancing to Motown classics and upbeat pop tracks provided by the live band, AmpliFive, and generous raffle giveaways.

Among some of the astonishing prizes up for grabs included two return tickets to any destination on an easyJet route, vouchers for men’s tailor Slaters, several bottles of whisky and Phantom of the Opera tickets.

The evening was a fantastic celebration of the invaluable work the charity does and of the vitally important industry we are proud to represent.

Our thanks go to all who attended for their generous donations and continued support for the charity, to Camelot for sponsoring the event and Raddison Blu for hosting.

We hope to see you all again next year!
