24ct Gold support for the Gold Ribbon Ball
It was wonderful to welcome 200 guests to CCPA’s 2017 Gold Ribbon Ball at the beginning of December.
It turns out that guests were all incredible party people: eating, dancing and generally having a fantastic party-time! The charity also had phenomenal support from local businesses, who donated auction and raffle prizes, giving their time and coming to help out on the night.
Sarah, a member of the TeamGold group of CCPA supporters, said “…this was my first Ball ever…it was one the best nights I’ve had. Great company and I felt like a princess all dressed up! Thank you for a wonderful night and I can’t wait till next year.”
The British Town Crier and Ball MC, Peter Taunton, and the Supreme Showgirls presented a colourful and warm welcome to guests whilst classic guitarist Alex Williams, and local band the Rock Dogs provided the musical entertainment. Lisa Fairy’s glittering body art was captured in the official photos by Stephen Sutton.
A number of sponsors and advertisers including Gold Top Dairy also supported the Ball.The evening raised a fantastic £3800
Rachael, CCPA’s Operation Manager says “We are so delighted that guests helped raise almost £4000 at the Gold Ribbon Ball. It will support CCPA’s enrichment activities: help families feel ‘normal’ so they can enjoy everyday family activities which will have a lasting impact that will help them through some very tough times.”
Rachael ends “On behalf of CCPA’s staff, volunteers, Board of Trustees and, most importantly, our families I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who played a part in making the 2017 Gold Ribbon Ball a huge success.”
We were over the moon in November to receive a cheque for nearly £1400 from Gnosall Co-op store as part of their Members scheme. Thanks to everyone who voted for us, this is an amazing amount!
If you are a Co-op member and missed supporting CCPA we are delighted that we have again been nominated to benefit from the next funding round.
The funds are raised by members choosing CCPA to benefit from them buying Co-op branded goods & also from the levy on carrier bags. As a member all you need to do is nominate CCPA by clicking here

Tranquility have been a long-term supporter of CCPA and in fact were the first business in Stafford to support the charity.
For nearly 13 years Justine De Qu, owner of Trnquility has found new ways to work with CCPA including donating a percentage of eBay sales, holding parties and offering a percentage from sales on the night, donating raffle prizes and promoting and supporting our events.
CCPA Operations Manager Rachael says “I really enjoy working with small , independent businesses like Tranquility as the relationship is one of mutual benefit and I am so grateful to Justine for her continued support. The Christmas Shopping Evening that Justine hosted last week raised £111 for CCPA and we were treated to mince pies, hand massages and a fabulous shopping experience too. I look forward to another 13 years of working together!”
