Eventmasters was delighted to support and attend Scotty’s ‘Little Soldiers Charity Ball’ on Saturday 28th October 2017 at the De Vere Staverton Estate Hotel. The event, which sold out in its entirety, proved to be a wonderful success, helping to raise valuable funds for the children it assists.
Scotty’s is an incredibly worthwhile charity that works tirelessly to provide assistance to hundreds of bereaved Forces children and young people who have lost a parent whilst serving in the British Armed Forces.
The charity was launched as a result of the experience of Army widow, Nikki Scott, following the death of her husband Corporal Lee Scott during his service in Afghanistan in 2009. Her moving speech outlined not only the incredible work the charity has achieved so far but also how and why it has grown in recent years.
Scotty’s offers a great amount of support to children, from fun activities such as holiday breaks and group events, to personal development assistance through educational grants and access to professional bereavement counselling.
Eventmasters were delighted to provide hospitality experiences for major sporting events as part of the Silent Auction staged. Members of the team also had the privilege of attending the Ball, courtesy of the evening’s main sponsor, Mercantile Claims.
There was quite a surprise for Denise Sheasby, CEO of Eventmasters, when Lance Corporal Richard Jones, the winner of Britain’s Got Talent in 2016, asked her to assist in one of his superb magic productions – Denise, Richard, playing cards and a sword, great fun!
“I have attended countless events over very many years, but being the magician’s assistant was a first for me; the whole evening was really enjoyable. Thanks to all involved at Scotty’s and to Gary Smith at Mercantile Claims for the kind invitation.
“Richard was really good, I would highly recommend him to our clients and we hope to work with him directly in the future – I am still trying to work out how he did it.”
