white nights 10th birthday party

 

Promise Ball Pembroke Lodge-33

To celebrate 10 fantastic years of ThePromise’s work in Russia a wonderful party was held at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park on the 26th June.

Thanks to the sunshine guests were treated to a pre-dinner drink on the terrace before settling down to a fabulous 3 course meal. The evening was hosted by MC Chris Turner who got the party off to a great start with a fun game of Tsars & Cossacks. The guests were treated to entertainment by Opera singer Ian Bloomfield and later the room was transformed and guests enjoyed some great dancing to TheCarnabys!

As well as a celebration of the past 10 years of ThePromise’s work the evening was also an opportunity to raise funds to help expand work in the future and thanks to the huge generousity of everyone we raised over £7000!

This amazing total means that we can run training courses in Ryazan and Moscow as well as provide the Filipok Centre in St Petersburg with the support needed to set up their very own Portage Programme.  This will bring Portage to many more families and children in desperate need.
