Summer ball will boost funds for Lincoln park restoration project
A black-tie ball will be held this month to raise funds for the multi-million-pound restoration of a park in Lincoln.
The ball will be held on Friday 23rd June to support the Boultham Park Restoration Project.
The project includes plans for various improvements to the 50-acre park, including restoration of the bandstand. A big part of the project is to deliver a café, shop, glasshouse and plant nursery that will provide training, work experience and employment opportunities for local young people with learning disabilities through local charity Linkage.
Chestnut Homes is supporting the project and is organising the black-tie ball, which will take place in the lakeside grounds of Jocastas, off Moor Lane in Thorpe-on-the-Hill, Lincoln.
David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “When we heard about the restoration project, we thought it was a wonderful idea and we were keen to support it in any way we could. “We hope to see as many people as possible at our black-tie ball so that we can raise vital funds to help preserve and improve Boultham Park. “The park is a beautiful space which holds a special place in the hearts of many people in Lincoln, and its restoration will benefit the whole community. “We’re looking forward to a wonderful evening, and I hope as many people as possible will join us to support this very deserving local cause.”
Guests at the ball will enjoy a glass of Pimms on arrival, followed by a three-course meal with entertainment. The evening will also include a charity raffle and auction.
The Boultham Park Restoration Project received a £2.7m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund’s ‘Parks for People’ initiative last year.
Tickets for the summer ball are £55 per person and the evening begins at 7pm. To book tickets and for more information, call 01522 596719 or email firstname.lastname@example.orgBack To News
