Charity ball to be held in Warwickshire for homelessness charity Crisis

A CHARITY ball is being held in Stratford to help tackle homelessness across the UK.

Tracey Pickin from Warwick has been appointed as the national president of the National Association of Tangent Clubs – a women’s organisation which offers networking, friendships and supports good causes.

She has chosen Crisis as her nominated charity for the next 12 months.

The event will be staged at the Stratford Manor Hotel in Stratford next January and businesses including developers have pledged support.

Tracey said: “We are a very well-kept secret even though we are one of the largest women’s organisations in the country, since we have over 500 clubs and over 10,000 members.

“As president, I am able to nominate a national charity that Tangent Clubs throughout the country will support as well as their local charities.

“I chose this charity because I think homelessness must be terrifying and Crisis provide support not just once a year around Christmas but every day of the year.

“Women, families and young people who often through no fault of their own, maybe because a relationship has broken down or through health reasons, can find themselves homeless. Crisis has a fantastic Skylight Centre in Coventry which provides practical help for people to gain the skills they need to secure employment and permanent accommodation.

“This has been a difficult year or so for many people in different ways but we hope people will be generous and support Crisis as much as possible because I have seen the charity change lives and I would like us to help them to help even more people.”
