Wearside Pneumatics was proud to support the Daisy Chain Project by attending the annual Lobster Charity Ball on 27th April.
Directors Phil Hood, Julie Prescott and Dean Horn, plus Office Manager Jacqueline Timmins enjoyed a tremendous evening at the Hardwick Hall Hotel in County Durham.
They were among more than 1,000 guests who dined on a delicious selection of canapés, lobster surf and turf and free flowing drinks whilst enjoying live entertainment, including a fashion show and headline performance from Sister Sledge who delighted guests with performances of their greatest hits, including “He’s the Greatest Dancer” and “We are Family”.
There was also a wide range of fundraising activities, including a live auction and “Hook a Duck”. These helped to raise almost £33,000 for the Daisy Chain Project, an organisation which supports families with children who are on the autistic spectrum. Daisy Chain was conceived as “a haven for children with autism; a place where they could go to experience something in life that would give them pleasure and was especially for them. It would also provide parents, carers and siblings with support and a resource library.”
Having been established in 2003, the Daisy Chain Project currently helps 2054 families in the Tees Valley. It supports 322 children with autism each week. In addition, the Daisy Chain Project supports 42 adults with autism each week.
Wearside Pneumatics Director, Julie Prescott, commented: “The Daisy Chain Project is a fantastic cause. Autism is unique, in that no two cases are the same, so the work the team do is complex and invaluable to the families they support. We were delighted to be able to make a small contribution to what they do whilst also having a wonderful time. It is important to us as a business that we celebrate our success; to be able to do that whilst also supporting a brilliant charity is a bonus!”
