Chopra’s Charity Ball

Over 500 people came out to support Southwark’s Charity Ball in May in aid of the Mayor’s Charity Appeal 2014-2015 for The Robes Project and UK Homes 4 Heroes. Hosted by The Worshipful Mayor of Southwark, Councillor Sunil Chopra, the event was a huge success and the largest Southwark Charity Ball to date. The Mayor’s Charity Appeal 2014-2015 is currently on target to raise over £70,000, the largest amount ever raised in a mayoral charity appeal in Southwark. Councillor Sunil Chopra said, “I am delighted that my Charity Ball was such a success. These are two charities that are very close to my heart and we must always be mindful of those less fortunate than ourselves. It has been one of the greatest privileges of my life to serve London’s most historic borough as Mayor and First Citizen and the fact that have we have raised so much money to help the homeless is my proudest achievement”.

The Charity Ball was held at the Guoman Tower Hotel, Tower Bridge, London. Guests enjoyed an Indian banquet meal and world class Bollywood entertainment.
