Saturday night saw the hugely successful 5th Annual CP Teens UK Ball at the Casa Hotel, Chesterfield.
The evening started with a special 'Pre-Ball Party' for 'CP Teens' and accompanying family/friends. Friendships built across the CP Teens UK network were able to come together prior to the main event starting with welcome drinks, a glitter artist and a photo booth!
From 7pm, 125 guests arrived to support CP Teens UK at the glittering black tie event.
This year's Special Guest was award winning disability travel blogger, Carrie-Ann Lightley. Carrie-Ann, who has Cerebral Palsy, inspired guests after dinner with her stories and tales about leaving her comfort zone and travelling the world with Cerebral Palsy. Carrie-Ann also told the room how important she felt CP Teens UK is and admitted that "teenage me is very envious of this support network right now!".
As in previous years, the room was full of 'help, hope, inspiration & friendship'.
"This Ball is the highlight of my year every year - there's always something so magical and special about it, it's wholesome!" - Guest
"I love how I can meet and see 'my' people and literally 'have a ball'! I feel so supported and a part of something." - 'CP Teen'
Over £9,000 was raised for CP Teens UK.
Thank you so much for everyone's incredible generosity.
