North east Scottish charity reveals the date for its Fabulous Funkylicious fundraising ball
A north east Scottish charity has announced the date for its Fabulous Funkylicious fundraising spring ball.
North East Sensory Services (NESS) will hold the event at the Union Kirk in Aberdeen in March. The 1970s and 1980s-themed ball promises to be a fun-filled and glamorous night of music, dancing, and entertainment. There will be a drinks reception and three course dinner, with the night culminating in a performance from the incredible 10-piece band Funk Connection.
The event takes place on Saturday 9 March 2024, between 6pm and 1am. It will raise funds for NESS, which supports thousands of blind and deaf people, and those with visual and hearing impairments, across Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Dundee, Angus and Moray. The charity’s main objective is to help people with sensory loss to live as independently as possible.
Funds raised at the event will go towards the added value services that NESS provides, including its social groups and activities. These services compliment the charity’s statutory services and help people face and overcome challenges associated with sight or hearing loss. There are different sponsorship packages available, ranging from gold to bronze. For further information on sponsorship opportunities or to book tickets, please email Lorraine Middleton or email Susan McKay.
NESS hold a wide range of fundraising events to support their work throughout the north east. In November, rugby legend Andy Nicol was guest speaker at the charity’s sportsman dinner, raising over £2800, while NESS’s race night in October raised a further £1700.

“Our Fabulous Funkylicious ball promises to be the perfect way to shake off the winter blues and add some colour to your life. NESS will transport you back to one of the brightest musical eras through dance and music. It will not only be a fun-filled evening but will help to raise vital funding for the services we offer to those with sensory loss. Our programme of fundraising events secures crucial funds for us to provide our life-changing services, and we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who supports us.”
