Students from the University of Bristol are hosting a glamorous party in aid of charity. The fourth annual Glitter dinner dance, to promote awareness and raise money for organisations that provide international humanitarian aid, is taking place next week [Monday, 26 February].
The black tie event begins with a champagne reception, followed by a buffet dinner, live music, DJ, a raffle and entertainment from various University societies. Organised by Jo Kyte, a Bristol University medical student, the event is being held at 8 pm in Walkabout, Corn Street, Bristol.
The two charities that will benefit from the evening are Merlin, a UK based charity, which provides vital health care and medical relief worldwide and the World Medical Fund (WMF), a charity that initiates smaller-scale aid projects at the community level, mainly in Malawi.
Jo Kyte, organiser of the event, said: “The aim of my project is to raise awareness and funds for organisations which provide international humanitarian aid, particularly amongst medical students who might, one day, want to work for such organisations.
“Now in its fourth year, the project has supported organisations such as Medecins Sans Frontieres, Oxfam and the Red Cross and has raised well over £8000. This year we are supporting Merlin and the World Medical Fund and we are expecting over 600 students to attend our fundraising event, the Glitter ball. So I'm hoping that everyone will have a wonderful time and that we will raise thousands more pounds in the process!"
Tickets are priced £15 with £5 going direct to charity. Further details are available from Jo Kyte, tel mobile 07796 265 138, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
