The Mayor and Mayoress with members of the Rotary Club

The Mayor’s Charity Ball comes back to Scarborough Spa on Friday 29 March with the theme of Healthy Hearts. 

The annual ball is hosted by the Mayor of the Borough of Scarborough, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Scarborough, and is welcoming a particularly special speaker this year: Shaun Harvey, Chief Executive of the English Football League. 

There will be live music from the Twilight Singers and band, 5 Divide, throughout the evening. A Grand Draw for a wide range of prizes will take place and local auctioneer, David Duggleby, will be the voice of the evening’s charity auction.

The main sponsor of the Mayor’s Charity Ball is Transpennine Express. Other organisations, including Booker, Raithwaite Estate, SIV and Smarts Wholesale Fruit and Vegetables are supporting the event by donating goods or services free of charge.

Cllr Joe Plant, Mayor of the Borough of Scarborough said:

“The Mayor’s Charity Ball is one of the biggest highlights of the mayoral year. It’s a fantastic opportunity to raise money for local causes and at the same time enjoy a wonderful evening with family, friends or colleagues. The Mayoress and I will be working with the Rotary Club of Scarborough and the team at Scarborough Spa to put on a really great event and we look forward to welcoming many new and familiar faces.”

All monies raised from the evening will go to local charities throughout Whitby, Scarborough and Filey. Funds will be distributed by the Borough of Scarborough Community Fund Committee later this year. Tickets, priced at £40 per person, will include a three course meal.
