Having the support of WM Donald will make this possible.” Katie Kyle – Head of Fundraising and Marketing. Befriend a Child

The Carnival Ball, being held at The Chester Hotel on Friday 27th May 2022, promises a night of live entertainment, a delicious three course dinner, a live band, not to mention the opportunity to take part in raffles and the auction.
