Military Themed Suffolk Show Ball Aims to Raise £30k for Local Charities - 10 April 2017
The 2017 Suffolk Show Ball will take place on 20 May at the Ringside Club Marquee, Trinity Park. This year’s Ball has a military theme, with vintage military machinery on display and a military band during reception drinks. The ball aims to raise £30,000 for three charities, Team Rubicon, Flourish and the Suffolk Agricultural Association’s education initiatives.
Team Rubicon’s mission is to unite the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams to disasters in the UK and overseas to immediately improve the quality of life of the people who are affected.
Flourish was established in 2016 to look at rural needs in Suffolk. Clare, Countess of Euston, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Suffolk, created a partnership of four charitable organisations in the county including, The Seckford Foundation, Suffolk Agricultural Association, Suffolk Community Foundation and Community Action Suffolk.
