Annually, the good people at APSCo hold a ball in support of a chosen charity. Each year the ball has a theme. 2017, for example, had ‘Miami Beach’. 2018 was based around the idea of ‘Aloha’. This year, on Friday 14th June, they’re going for something a little different – ‘Enter the Dragon’. Think Bruce Lee. Chinese dragons. Cheongsams. With centuries worth of Chinese tradition to choose from, it should be a spectacular event for all those in attendance.
We’re also delighted to be the head sponsor of this year’s ball – it’s an honour, and a true reflection of our close working relationship with APSCo. The chosen charity for 2019 is St. Christopher’s Hospice. St. Christopher’s do outstanding, selfless, and immensely difficult work in the field of palliative care. Theirs is a vision of the world in which all dying people and those close to them have access to the care and support they need, when and wherever they need it.
As the hospice notes: “Each person is unique and care is tailored to meet social, emotional and spiritual needs, as well as manage physical symptoms.” Each year they provide support and care to over 6,500 people across South East London, both at home and in the hospice. An extremely worthy cause.
Read on below for a little more detail from APSCo about the event:
“When you enter the Intercontinental Hotel to join us at this years’ APSCo Charity Ball, you will leave the hustle and bustle of our capital city behind you and will step into the exotic and exciting atmosphere of China.
Don’t miss out on enjoying an evening of lanterns, chopsticks, spring rolls, flowers and dragons (to mention just a few of the delights awaiting you on Friday 14th June).
The APSCo Charity Ball is the ideal event to bring along either your clients or your colleagues and is one of the most anticipated evenings in the recruitment sector calendar.
Fabulous surroundings, wonderful food, after dinner entertainment – PLUS we’re raising money for charity during the evening with fund raising activities including a raffle and an auction.”
We’re very much looking forward to attending. Make sure to check back in on the blog in a couple of weeks for a full picture diary.
