Dame Kelly Holmes to party for 2012
December 19, 2011
The town’s unemployed youngsters are set to benefit throughout 2012 from a spectacular fundraising gala dinner at the Hilton Reading.
Double Olympic gold winner Dame Kelly Holmes will be guest of honour at the Party in the Sky event on Friday, January 27, where the business community will be encouraged to support youngsters who are struggling to find work or enter training.
Organisers hope the black tie event will raise £20,000 for the Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust (DKHLT), where every young person enrolled is monitored and supported by world class sports performers to enhance their self-belief and employability skills.
DKHLT’s Louise Wolsey said: “The support of an event like Party in the Sky which brings together business and training providers gives us a real platform to keep working in the area.”
For tickets, which cost £99 each or £990 for a table of 10, email Sue Brackley at Reading UK CIC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
