Aberdeen Charity Ball

Aberdeen Charity Ball took place at the Marcliffe Hotel on Friday, 8th June 2012. The idea came from Steve and Toni Brady following a trip to Bosnia Herzegovina to see the projects undertaken by St Joseph & The Helpers. Steve and Toni were very ably assisted by Lynn Newborn, Sylvia Hoskins, Mark Wilson and Jenny Allan. The evening was a spectacular success with excellent food and entertainment. The event raised almost £27,000 which will help to complete the Pastoral Centre and Public Kitchen in Sarajevo.
