Broadway Ball Takes Centre Stage, Raising £1,300 For Charity

18/03/19 - Over £1,300 was raised at the Mayor of Broxtowe’s charity ball last weekend, providing a welcome boost for Armed Forces charity SSAFA and East Midlands Ambulance Service.

Guest of Honour, Ross Woodward, receiving his prize from the Mayor of Broxtowe, Cllr Derek Burnett BEM

Councillor Derek Burnett BEM hosted the black-tie event at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel on Saturday with guests helping to raise the money as part of a charity raffle, auction of a Paul Smith handbag and a signed Notts County Football Shirt.

Guest of Honour, Trooper from 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards Ross Woodward, who was recently awarded the Queen’s Commendation for Bravery following his heroic actions during the Las Vegas Shooting of 2017, won one of the top prizes of the night: A £200 voucher for Slaters Menswear.

Around 200 guests enjoyed a delicious three course meal and Broadway tunes from the Chilwell Military Wives Choir, before dancing the night away to live music from The Beat Roots at the Broadway themed event.

One lucky guest also took home the Paul Smith handbag worth £250 after beating other bidders in a charity auction. The bag was just one of a host of fantastic prizes which were generously donated by local businesses and individuals including a £1,000 door from KLG.

Councillor Burnett, a Community First Responder himself, has been fundraising for SSAFA and East Midlands Ambulance Service during his year in office with a final total to be announced in the next few weeks.
