Name of Event: Chain of Hope Gala Ball 2018

Volunteer Role: This November we are holding our 16th Gala Ball. The event has grown considerably and we now welcome 600 guests to Old Billingsgate in the City of London. Last year’s event, featuring an explosive performance from Sean Paul raised a staggering £2.8 million for our work. We hope to continue our success this year with the help of our incredible partners. The Ball consists of a champagne reception, 3 course dinner, live and silent auctions and celebrity performances.

Volunteering at the Chain of Hope Gala Ball will give you a valuable insight into private events and fundraising. We strongly value our volunteers as without their support, the Gala Ball would not have the success it has had to date.  Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

  • helping set up
  • registering guests on arrival
  • showing guests to their seats
  • being a table host to help guests with any questions on the night
  • assist with bidding and taking bid details and payment information

All roles will be allocated prior to the night and discussed in detail at the pre-event briefing.

When: Friday 16 November 2018 with the following times:

  • 17:30 Volunteers arrive
  • 20:00 Guests Arrive
  • 01:00 Event finish
  • 01:30 Volunteer Departure

Where: Old Billingsgate, City of London EC3R 6DX
