Attend Mind’s Masquerade Gala and join the fight for better mental health

Local mental health charity Hull and East Yorkshire Mind will be holding a Masquerade Gala to raise much needed funds and awareness so that they can be there for more local people struggling with their mental health and wellbeing.

The Masquerade Gala on Friday 12 May 2023, just days before the start of Mental Health Awareness Week, will take place at the MKM Stadium in Hull.

The evening consists of a drinks reception, a three-course meal, a charity raffle and live entertainment throughout the evening. There will also be a range of inspiring speakers at the event talking about their experiences of mental health.

All proceeds raised on the night will benefit local people and help the charity to move closer to a world where nobody has to face a mental health problem alone.

The event is kindly supported by local partners such as The VIP Group of Companies, Tigers Events, and Ditto 4 Design. It is a great opportunity for businesses, community groups and individuals to come together for a worthy cause.

Tables have been selling fast for the event, with local organisations such as KCOM, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Language is Everything, Age UK and the HEY Smile Foundation already showing their support.

Emma Dallimore, Chief Executive at Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, said: “As a local charity we rely on the generous support of our local community so that we can be there for more people right here in Hull and East Yorkshire.

“It has been great to see such a positive reaction to our Masquerade Gala so far, and it really is amazing to see so many local organisations buying tickets and showing their support.

“The event is set to be a jam-packed evening filled with entertainment, and most importantly, it will be a great opportunity to raise much needed funds and awareness for Hull and East Yorkshire Mind. Together, and with the support of our local community, we really can make a difference to the lives of local people.”

Christy Lee, Senior Sales Director at VIP Group of Companies, said: “We are really proud to be supporting Hull and East Yorkshire Mind with their Masquerade Gala. As an official partner, we really value the work that Hull and East Yorkshire Mind do day in and day out to support members of our local community struggling with their mental health.

“The event is set to be a great opportunity for local businesses and community groups to come together to show their support and commitment to something that can affect us all. We love working with Hull and East Yorkshire Mind and very much look forward to providing continued support through our ongoing partnership.”
