Langton Howarth is proud to announce its continued support for the Firecracker Ball, now celebrating its twenty-first year. This remarkable immersive luxury event serves as a beacon of charitable giving, with all proceeds benefiting Yorkshire-based Barnardo’s Projects. Last year alone after a 2 year break due to Covid, the event raised a staggering £210,000, and an impressive £3 million since its inception. To date, the ball stands as the largest single one-night fundraising event outside of London.
Barnardo’s is the United Kingdom’s largest children’s charity, dedicated to establishing a comprehensive network of services within local communities throughout the nation. Their mission is clear: protect, support, and nurture children and young people. In the previous year alone, Barnardo’s, in collaboration with their dedicated partners, provided essential aid to an astounding 357,000 children, young people, parents, and carers.
Tom Dempsey Operations Director and co-owner at Langton Howarth sits on the general committee and gives his time freely to organize the ball and secure sponsorship for the event. Tom has first-hand experience of the great work at Barnardo’s as a close family member is a long-time foster carer for a Barnardo’s young person. Having had this personal experience of what funds raised can help achieve, Tom has never been more committed to raising even more money for Yorkshire-based Barnardo’s projects, especially in a cost-of-living crisis when many young people have never needed it more.
Tom shared his enthusiasm for their continued involvement in the Firecracker Ball, stating, “We have been steadfast supporters of this event for numerous years, and we are eagerly anticipating this year’s ‘Greek musical’ themed evening—a spectacular occasion that promises to raise much-needed funds for Barnardo’s.”
