20th Anniversary Gala Charity Ball for Home-Start Lisburn Colin celebrating local families and volunteers.

20th Anniversary Gala Ball, Sat 14th October 2017

We at Home-Start Lisburn/Colin are very excited to announce that as this is our 20th year of providing support and friendship to the families of Lisburn and Colin that we are celebrating with a Gala Ball.

The evening promises to provide all the glitz and glamour you would expect with a ball along with a fantastic raffle, live entertainment, a delicious 4 course meal accompanied by wine and to top the evening off an amazing auction will be held with some truly wonderful prizes up for grabs.

The Ball is to celebrate all of the amazing work that Home-Start Lisburn/Colin has done in the local area for children and families. The Gala Ball will be held on Saturday 14th October at the Crowne Plaza Belfast, and the night will begin with a sparkling wine reception at 7pm.

Absolutely everybody is invited to attend this special evening and we are looking forward to sharing the evening with you.

Tickets cost £50 per person or perhaps you would prefer to get a table of 10 people together and your ticket would cost £45 (£450 per table of 10 if booked together).

Contact the office on 02892 628585 or email us at Homestartlisburn@btconnect.com for further information or to book your tickets.

  • Painting by Sorrel Wills

“I am an artist living in Antrim. Many subjects inspire me and my paintings often feature landscapes, townscapes and interiors. I work mainly in oils but embrace other media too. My work can be found in the galleries but I also take private commissions. My latest work has explored using palette knives. I Love them! I am also delighted to have been accepted this year 2017, as an associate member of Ulster Society of Woman Artists.”
