The City of Coventry Charity Ball 2019

The City of Coventry Charity Ball will be held at Ricoh Arena, organised by Coventry & Warwickshire Children’s Charity in aid of the NSPCC and other local children’s charities.

This spectacular annual event is now in its 15th year. The 2018 Ball was the most successful yet and clearly shows the overwhelming empathy and support of the local business community for the NSPCC and the work done to protect and support local children and families.

The funds raised will be used to help the most vulnerable children and young people in the Coventry and Warwickshire area who have been affected by abuse.

Friday, 27th September
