Black tie Gala Dinner

A big thank you to everyone who joined us for the 3rd Annual conference and Black Tie Gala Dinner in celebration and support of Woundcare4Heroes and helped us raised a huge amount of money to help rebuild more lives of those injured in conflict. The evening was packed with fun and entertainment, see the gala dinner photo gallery here. This year it was held in the Quayside suite at Huddersfield University on Saturday 1st August. Guests enjoyed a drinks reception followed by a 3 course dinner, entertainment, games, awards ceremony, speakers and disco.

We had some celebrity guests from Yorkshires favourite soap, Emmerdale, Chris Chittell who plays Eric Pollard said (before the event) “I am delighted to be attending this event, Woundcare4Heroes is an incredible charity, I am very proud to be involved and urge people to support them and come along to what will be a fantastic night, whilst raising much needed funds for such a worthy cause”.
