News Release – Mayors Charity Ball March 7, 2017

The Town Mayor of New Milton, Cllr David E Hawkins, hosted a marvellous charity ball last Saturday, with guests dancing to Zac and the Zeros, and a very well-supported prize raffle.


The success of the evening was thanks to the generosity of 110 paying guests and the fantastic hosting from the Mayor, working hard and having fun at the same time fund-raising for the Pilgrim Bandits Charity.  The party-goers joined in the fun wearing fashion from the 1950/1960’s.  First prize for best dressed couple went to Thelma Keleher and Tom Griffin, who are regular supporters of the Mayors Charity Ball.


Shorefields Holiday Park ensured the smooth running of the function complete with bunting and as usual providing excellent service.

The event raised £ 1,000 with funds coming from tickets, raffle prize sales and money donations on the night.  The Mayor and the Town Council are grateful for all the generous support received from local New Milton individuals and businesses and the wider New Forest community.
