PicUPhotobooths (a divison of She’s Gott It! Events) was contracted by Latimer Hinks (one of the North East’s leading law firms) to supply them with our unique LED colour changing cube inflatable photobooth for their annual Charity Ball, which took place within the Grand Marquee at Wynyard Hall on Friday 10th November 2017.
The ball was the ninth organised by Latimer Hinks Solicitors and was part of its pledge to raise £10,000 for St Teresa’s Hospice and further funds for Darlington Memorial Hospital MRI-Scanner Appeal and smaller local charities.
Latimer Hinks chose to raise money for St Teresa’s Hospice in honour of colleague, Helen Thomas, a solicitor at the firm, who died in July 2016 after battling cancer and who was also supported by the Hospice. A team of colleagues, calling themselves Hel’s Angels, have been taking part in various fundraising activities throughout the year, including the Hamsterley Forest 10K and St Teresa’s It’s a Knockout competition.
The charity ball featured a range of entertainment including international swing singer, Cole Page, and two roaming magicians, including Britain’s Got Talent’s David Penn.
The Legal 500 and Chambers UK recognised firm, which has raised over £70,000 for numerous charities, teamed up with a number of sponsors, including Lewis Surveying Associates, Brighter Law, MT Print and Artifact Media. County Durham Community Foundation pledged to match funds raised on the evening.
Anne Elliott, Chief Executive of Latimer Hinks, said: “St Teresa’s Hospice is a fantastic local charity, which does important work assisting those with life-limiting illnesses and their families. It gave Helen and her family vital support during her illness, for which I know they were very grateful. It is for that reason that we decided to support the Hospice as well as other local charities in this our 125th anniversary year.
“We would like to say a big thank you to our sponsors, especially to County Durham Community Foundation.”
The photobooth (complete with a huge amount of silly props) was a massive success, after guests finished dining the line for the photobooth never seemed to end and proved to be hours of fun for this amazing event and client.
