Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa will play host to two extraordinary evenings of glitz and glamour as a number of must-have items go under the hammer for Harry Charlesworth.

Fundraisers will be slipping into their tuxedos and ball gowns this Friday for the first event, which is sold out, while the second event, which has limited tickets still available, takes place on Friday, March 31.

All proceeds will go towards the care of Newnham boy Harry, who suffered severe brain damage due to a traumatic labour and birth in March 2015. As a result, Harry has spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and it is likely his health will deteriorate as he continues to grow whilst his life expectancy will not be a long one.

The Trust was launched in September 2016 to raise vital funds that will contribute towards Harry’s ongoing care, including specialist equipment and extensive physiotherapy.

The balls, which will take place within the hotel’s majestic Knightley Court, will both commence at 7pm for pre-dinner drinks, before a three-course meal is served at 7.30pm. The charity auctions will get underway at 9.15pm, led by a professional auctioneer and consisting of a fantastic array of prizes. Finally, guests will be able to celebrate this special occasion by dancing the night away during the disco.

Hayley Charlesworth, Harry’s mother, said: “We have been touched by the generosity and support shown by all of the staff at Fawsley Hall, who are working hard to help make these events a roaring success. Due to his disabilities, Harry has a very complex set of needs and every penny raised will help to ensure we can provide him with a better quality of life.”

Tickets will cost £50 – with all proceeds going towards The Helping Harry Trust.
