We will welcome you to a sparkling reception followed by a sumptuous 3 course meal with fine wines and free-flowing drinks for the rest of evening. You will be treated to star entertainers, live music and dancing.
There will be a special auction hosted by a guest auctioneer and a raffle with top quality prizes.
The theme of the evening will be about aspiration and helping young people from difficult backgrounds to fulfil their potential. The Dream Ball’s message is that it does not matter where you come from but it is about where you are going and that anyone should be able to rise above the circumstances of their birth to achieve what they want in life.
During the course of our work we have seen how difficult circumstances can constrain young people and given Big Change’s reputation for tackling this issue; we would like to put the event’s proceeds towards these causes. As well as any profit from the ticket fee, funds will be generated from the auction, raffle and other fundraising activities on the evening.
Big Change was founded by a group of friends including HRH Princess Beatrice of York, Holly and Sam Branson.
Big Change was created to think differently about the role that charity can play in driving change for young people in the UK. They wanted to do more that just treat symptoms, they wanted to positively move things forward. To that end, they back solutions that demonstrate alternative ways of supporting young people- helping them to thrive in life, not just in exams.
The projects supported by Big Change equip young people with the tools and confidence to thrive in life so we prevent problems, rather than deal with them after the event (based on early intervention and positive psychology methods).
Big Change supports big ideas at an early stage to help them prove their impact. This way, they can go on and become part of the way things are done (based on venture capital and tech incubator models).
Over the last three years Big Change has worked with innovative projects from 21 Trust, Frontline, Reclaim and Franklin Scholars to name just a few. These are dynamic organisations that are equipping young people with key skills and confidence to tackle whatever life throws at them. They all have big ambitions for long-term social change – helping to make that happen is what inspires all of the team at Big Change.
