Ball of the Year

Friday 22 November, in the Great Room, Le Meridien Grosvenor House Hotel, in Park Lane, London

The UK's leading equine welfare charity, the ILPH (International League for the Protection of Horses) has announced its plans for an Equine Jubilee Celebration Ball to be held in London later this year.

Says Roly Owers, Director (Support) at the ILPH, " We couldn't let our 75th Anniversary pass without marking the occasion in some special way. We want the Ball to be an opportunity to celebrate the horse and the work of the ILPH since its foundation in 1927.

"We do not want it to necessarily be a fundraising exercise, but a celebration - all the costs will be covered by the ticket sales and sponsorship - with the auction and raffle revenue a bonus. We would love to see as many of our supporters as possible come along to celebrate with us."

Among the auction items will be a unique ILPH Bob the Cob rocking horse kindly made and donated by Stevenson Brothers, of Ashford Kent and a week long African safari.

Tickets cost £75 (or £675 for a table of 10) which includes reception drinks, a four course meal, half a bottle of wine per head and dancing the night away to 29 Fingers Band and the William Bartholomew Discotheque.

Tickets can be purchased via the ILPH website on - by phoning 0870 906 1927 or by writing to Equine Jubilee Celebration Ball, ILPH, Anne Colvin House, Snetterton, Norfolk, NR16 2LR.
