Learning Curve Group (LCG) aim to raise thousands of pounds for their 2017 charity of the year, Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS), by hosting their annual charity ball.

The Vegas-themed ball, sponsored by NCFE, will be compered by award-winning Heart FM DJ, Justin Lockwood and promises to be an exciting evening featuring live music, a three course meal and casino tables, all in aid of the GNAAS. Entertainment throughout the night includes the fantastic live band Shakedown, saxophonist Daniel Johnson and dance performances from glamorous showgirls.

The GNAAS operates three air ambulance helicopters across the North-East, North Yorkshire and Cumbria, bringing pioneering pre-hospital care to the scene. The service helps rescue hundreds of severely injured and ill patients each year and rely on the support of the public to survive, therefore we hope to raise as much money as possible through the generosity of our business partners and guests.

The Vegas ball starts at 6:30pm on Friday September 15, at Hardwick Hall Hotel, near Sedgefield, Co. Durham. Tickets are available now, priced £65 each or £600 for 10. Tickets include a reception drink and three course meal which can be booked by emailing [email protected] or by calling Chloe Robinson on 01388 777 129.  

Brenda McLeish, Chief Executive of Learning Curve Group, said: “Our annual charity ball is always a huge success which receives a lot of support from businesses in the area. Everyone has a great evening while we raise money for a charity, which was chosen by the staff of Learning Curve Group, for the fantastic work that they do in the region.

“We hope that this year’s Vegas ball is as successful as previous years and that people of the North East support what promises to be an unforgettable event.”

Ben McWilliams, of GNAAS, said: “We are very grateful for the support we are receiving from Learning Curve Group. As we rely on the support of the public to survive, the charity ball will be a great way to help us raise the money we need to continue the work we do, while also having a good time.”

GNAAS crews respond to around 1,000 call outs each year and on board the aircraft are specialist trauma doctors and paramedics, who bring accident and emergency expertise to the scene.LCG employees chose GNAA as their 2017 charity after an in-house vote. More information on GNAAS is available at
