On the 6th February 2014, I had the pleasure to host the first inaugural Masquerade Ball organised by the SSEES Committee. I, as the welfare officer, had the privilege to pick the charity which we would be supporting as this would be a charity Masquerade ball. I chose to support the Brittle Bone Society. They fundraise for specialised wheelchairs and offer a free confidential support service as well as signposting on day to day issues such as benefits and treatments. This event had a lot of stress to organise, including trying to make the club more disabled friendly. However, we all pulled together as a committee and we pulled it off. We are proud to announce that we raised £2622.02 for the Brittle Bone Society, thanks to the generosity of the students of UCL and their friends. We are looking forward to the ball next year.
We are delighted to be also featured in the winter newsletter for the Brittle Bone Society, an excerpt of which can be found below:
