YMCA would like to invite people across the Black Country to join them in an evening of celebration of 5 years of the YMCA Open Door project.

YMCA Open Door has been placing homeless teenagers in family homes since 2009.  Today, the project has around 70 Hosts providing over 12,000 nights of supported lodgings a year right across the Black Country!

In recognition of all it has achieved over the past 5 years, YMCA Black Country Group will be holding a Charity Ball on Saturday 29th March, at West Bromwich Albion Football Club to raise £5000 to help homeless young people move on to independent accommodation.

The event will consist of a Champagne Reception with a 3 Course meal, followed by after dinner speeches from Blind Dave Heeley and Martin Houghton – Brown, CEO of Depaul UK and entertainment from the 2tonics – the best tribute band to the Specials, until 12am.

Tickets are available at £50 each with table discounts available. Anyone interested in supporting this special occasion should contact Rachael Taylor on 0121 524 1957
