Fluent Finance Abroad supports Butterfly Children charity

Every year the team from Fluent Finance Abroad likes to help with a bit of sponsorship for Debra Spain and their annual golf event, which is held in Marbella at the Aloha Golf club in Nueva Andalucía.

Debra is a cause close to our hearts, as EB, Epidermolysis Bullosa, also called Butterfly Skin is an incurable, rare and serious genetic condition that affects the skin where it becomes as delicate as a butterfly wing. Simply touching the surface of the skin causes severe blistering and wounds that never heal. Blistering also occurs internally (in the mouth, oesophagus, intestine, airways, urinary tracts and even the inside of the eyelids) leading to further suffering and serious health problems.

DEBRA Spain was founded in 1993 and is a non-profit-making organisation that provides support and helps to improve the quality of life of those affected by EB. The charity works hard to provide the following:

– Emotional and medical support to families and carers, as well as social services professionals with information and guidance

– Fully trained nurses who travel throughout Spain visiting families in their own homes

– Information and advice on all aspects of the disease, coordinating with doctors and health services to ensure patients receive the correct treatment

– Support for research programmes into a possible cure

– Events and activities to promote awareness and raise funds through numerous events and charity shops

– A number of yearly national meetings to bring affected people together, as well as conferences for medics and other professionals

– A link to DEBRA in all other countries

– Continuous work to obtain private and public grants.

Belfast -based Debt Strategists, Bell & CompanyBelfast -based Debt Strategists, Bell & Company, are holding a casino inspired Gala Ball on Friday 3rd March at the award-winning Titanic Belfast and are delighted to have the fantastic support of some well-known names including special guests Lady Brenda McLaughlin and David Tait.

All guests and sponsors alike will be given the ‘Royale’ treatment with the evening beginning with a sparkling drinks reception at 6.45pm and a tantalizing 3 course banquet with Titanic Tea and White Star Line Coffee to follow.

Much loved local favourite, Pamela Ballantine will host the event in her usual exuberant style guaranteed to keep the crowd entertained. The Luxury Casino will be sure to bring out the ‘High Roller’ in you and will be available for all guests. The fun doesn’t stop there and there will be dancing until the early hours with the renowned ‘Just Adam Band’ along with other surprises on the night.

Earlier this year Bell & Company decided, by unanimous agreement, to select NSPCC NI as charity of the year. Too many have had their childhood robbed from them and endured life destroying experiences. Guest speaker David Tait will courageously speak at the event, which is guaranteed to touch everybody in the room.

The Fundraising Gala Ball is the most important fundraising event, to date, to generate vital funds to sustain the NSPCC’s work in Northern Ireland. Company Director, Terry Bell states, “Our goal is to raise £5,000 in our first year with the NSPCC. This is a cause that is very close to our hearts collectively as a team and we are working very hard to achieve this for such a worthwhile cause. We must thank all those involved, not least our sponsors and everyone attending. There are still a few tables left so why not join us for what will be a great night.”

The event has attracted much interest already with tables and tickets selling out fast. Some key sponsorship and support has been gratefully secured from well known, local businesses including Cleaver Fulton Rankin, NIBC, Fona Cab, Murdock Builders Merchants, WC Anthony & Sons, McAtamneys Family Butchers, Fluent Finance Abroad to name a few with further sponsorship welcomed.

The NSPCC NI are the leading children’s charity fighting to end child abuse in Northern Ireland. Almost 2,000 children in Northern Ireland were identified as needing protection from abuse last year and the NSPCC are fighting every day to prevent this.

“We’re the only charity fighting to end child abuse in the UK and Channel Islands. That’s why we help children who’ve been abused to rebuild their lives, we protect children at risk, and we find the best ways of preventing child abuse from ever happening”.

Tickets for the Gala Ball can be purchased individually at £60/pp and there are still some tables left including ‘High Roller’ and ‘House Tables’ – the perfect opportunity to have a work or family get together! All tickets include a sparkling drinks reception, 3 course gourmet dinner, full use of the luxury casino and live music from ‘The Just Adam Band’ and dancing until late.

Looking forward to the event, Company Director Amanda Bell said “We are delighted to be hosting this prestigious event in aid of the NSPCC Northern Ireland. The evening will be a lot of fun for everyone involved but crucially the money we raise enables us to help many more children across Northern Ireland suffering at the hands of child abuse.”
