CHAS | Rocking Horse Ball 2022

A cause close to our own heart, YOURgb was delighted to partner with CHAS – Children’s Hospices Across Scotland – to provide on-site management and support for their annual flagship fundraising event, The Rocking Horse Ball which took place on Friday 17th June.

300 guests were immersed in a Wizard of Oz themed evening; full of fun, music, entertainment and magic (really, there was a real magician!). Over £100 000 was raised during the event – an amazing amount which will benefit many children and families within the CHAS community.

Three members of the YOURgb team supported the CHAS team to ensure the best possible guest experience during the event, as well as providing efficient pre- and post-event logistical assistance.

“The support the YOURgb Team gave to me on the day and night of the event was first class. Nothing was too much, the team were complete grafters and just got things done. The worst part of the day for me is the tidying up at the end, especially when it’s at 1am and I’ve been there since 9.30am. But, this night I turned round and most of our stuff had been tidied into the cloakroom ready to be put in the van. Everything was loaded by 1am, which honestly was such a god-send for me! It was great having Hollie as my right hand woman, I know my issue is letting go of things, but you were there to pick up on everything throughout the night. Tom, you were a total trouper with the champagne draw and Olivia, your support with the volunteers and co-ordinating everything was fab. I absolutely could not have done it without you all, especially this year when it’s just me in the team. Thank you so much!”

“I really hope we can work together again on next year’s event.”
