Horse lovers and supporters of equine charity Brooke are invited to attend a Gala Ball in aid of the organisation on Saturday 28 October at Nailcote Hall in Berkswell. Tickets include a three-course meal, celebrity auctioneer, live entertainment, fundraising and speakers.

The Ball will feature a fundraising auction hosted by Bargain Hunt and Flog It auctioneer, Charles Hanson, helping Brooke to raise funds for working animals around the world. Guests will have the chance to bid for a variety of donated prizes, including unique artwork including paintings and sculptures, hampers and jewellery. After the auction, a live band and disco will take place.

The Gala Dinner has been organised by Vicky Farmer, long-term Brooke supporter and Volunteer Fundraiser from Brooke’s East Midlands Group in Warwickshire.

“Following feedback from guests at last year’s Ball that it was the best night out they’d had for a long time, I rather rashly agreed to arrange another!” she said. “There’s no going back now; we plan to make it even bigger and better than last year. If you would like to be a sponsor for the event or donate something for our auction, we would really appreciate your support”

Tickets are on sale at £75 per person, with group discounts and special rates for overnight accommodation available. To book or for further information about the Ball, send an email to
