ebn has a ball for local charities.

Businesses from across the county came together on November 24th, when one of the county's top business networking organisations held their first charity ball. The event was held at the Ivy Hill Hotel in Chelmsford and was attended by over 100 ebn (Effective Business Network) members and their guests.

The event was set up to support 5 local charities; Farleigh Hospice, Havens Hospice, SNAP, Age UK Essex, and Dancing Giraffe.

The evening started with welcome drinks and a greeting from ebn's Managing Director Glenys Chatterley and Heart Essex presenter Su Harrison. Guests were then treated to a lovely 3 course meal before the fund raising really began.

The fund raising started with a chance to win a barrow of booze, yes an actual wheel barrow full of booze! The room went silent as Su announced the winner, followed by lots of cheers and groans.

This was followed by a raffle and an auction, which included a Jaguar for the weekend, and a spa day, to name just a couple.

This is when the party really started, the DJ had everyone up and dancing, and there was even a spontaneous Zumba lesson at one point, because what ball isn't complete without a bit of Zumba?

Glenys Chatterley said; "The event proved extremely successful, and we were well looked after by the staff. We managed to raise over £4000 pounds for the charities, and have a fabulous night too.

"Everyone made such a great effort, and I'm so grateful to everyone that sponsored and supported this event, including my networking members. Each of our ebn networking groups support a local charity; the members represent businesses based in the local community, so they want to support that community."

ebn has 17 Groups across Essex, Herts, and Kent, and more information is available at www.ebn.uk.com.
