Local Taunton Charity Get Home Safe is proud to announce their Spring Ball!
Following the success of the Valentines Ball which took place in February 2018, Get Home Safe are again organising a fantastic evening to raise money for the continuation and improvements to the Taunton Safe Hub.
The Taunton Safe Hub was launched in August 2018 in partnership with St Johns Ambulance with the aim to help vulnerable people get home safe. The safe hub gives a safe place in Taunton town centre for people who have perhaps had too much to drink or require first aid can come and feel safe.
The volunteers from Get Home Safe and the St Johns Ambulance team are stationed at the hub from 9:30pm to 3am on a Saturday night at the end of each month. Working together with the police, street pastors, door staff and pubs and clubs we have been able to successful help people in need get home safely. We also aim to help release pressures on our local A&E department.
The Spring Ball is taking place on Saturday 16 March 2019 at Taunton Rugby Club. The evening will consist of a three course meal, live music from the local band FILTA, DJ, photobooth and more.
The evening will also commemorate the five year anniversary of the death of Ross Paterson whom the charity it set up in loving memory of. Helen Evans, Founder and Chairperson of Get Home Safe told Tone News: “Ross was a wonderful young man with so many rare qualities and I was so incredibly proud of him. If we can help just one family from going through what my family are, then we would have achieved something.”
Tickets are £45 per person, or £400 for a table of 10 people and all the profits from the evening will go towards improving the facilities for the Taunton Safe Hub and also continuing to spread our important message.
