DannyLand Ball proves a Crazy Success

On Saturday 2nd November guests travelled to the Crowne Plaza in Newcastle for the very first DannyLand ball organised by Danny Mitchell from Change Fundraising in aid of the Charlie Gard Foundation.

Change Fundraising have been supporting the foundation with their fundraising events in 2019 and generously chose the Charlie Gard Foundation as the beneficiary of the funds raised from this fantastically fun event. Thanks go to Rob and his amazing northern Rock Choir who greeted guests as they entered the reception area, and our very own Monkey Mascot was also there to cheer on the amazing choir.

Guest were also entertained by local singer Amelia Saleh who, at just thirteen years old, impressed guests with her beautiful and amazing voice and emotional song choices.

GoodBox kindly supplied contactless devices for the evening, enabling guests to make direct donations via card, which helped to raise the pledge and donation amount to over £24,000 for the evening.


We’d like to thank Danny at Change Fundraising for supporting our charity and very much look forward to next year’s event too!
