THE YMCA is inviting people across the Black Country to join them in an evening to celebrate five years of the YMCA Open Door project.

YMCA Black Country Group is hosting its first Charity Ball to celebrate five years of success for its Supported Lodgings Project.

YMCA Open Door has been placing homeless teenagers in family homes since 2009. Today, the project has around 70 hosts providing more than 12,000 nights of supported lodgings a year right across the Black Country!

The Charity Ball will be on Saturday, March 29, at West Bromwich Albion Football Club and will aim to raise £5,000 to help homeless young people move on to independent accommodation.

The event will consist of a champagne reception with a three-course meal, followed by after dinner speeches from Blind Dave Heeley and Martin Houghton – Brown, CEO of Depaul UK, and entertainment from the 2tonics – the best tribute band to the Specials, until midnight

Tickets are available at £50 each with table discounts available. Anyone interested in supporting this special occasion should contact Rachael Taylor on 0121 524 1957 or rachael.taylor@ymcabc.org.uk

Nathan Adams,

YMCA Open Door Project Manager.
