Don't miss The Snowflake Ball, an unforgettable night out in Newcastle featuring festive food, a live auction and entertainment

The incredible Snowflake Ball is back once more for 2024! 

Join The Sick Children’s Trust and Children’s Heart Unit Fund (Chuf) for an evening filled with exceptional food, festive entertainment and fundraising. 

The Sick Children’s Trust and The Children’s Heart Unit Fund (Chuf) are thrilled to be partnering for this year’s Snowflake Ball, sponsored by Accenture. We are celebrating the 10th anniversary of Scott House, our ‘Home from Home’ supporting families of sick children being treated at the Children’s Heart Unit at Newcastle’s Freeman Hospital. The Sick Children’s Trust and Chuf have worked collaboratively for more than a decade to ensure that families with children receiving treatment on the Children’s Heart Unit are supported during the most traumatic time of their lives. Together we are hosting this special festive evening to raise funds in support of families with a seriously ill child in hospital in the North East. 

Guests will be welcomed with a drinks reception, followed by a seasonal three-course meal with a money-can’t-buy auction, festive entertainment and live music to get you in the Christmas spirit! The evening will also present the opportunity for guests to hear from an inspirational family speaker who has benefitted from the services of both charities. 

Kick-off your holiday celebrations in style with this truly unforgettable night! 

Guests will also have the chance to buy a handmade hanging house with gold heart detail for their Christmas tree in support of The Sick Children’s Trust and Chuf, alongside purchasing their tickets.
