£120k raised at Ben Ball


Over 600 guests attended Ben Ball 2022 on Wednesday 7th December.

This year, the event was held at Old Billingsgate Market – a venue in the City on the north bank of the Thames. The venue was transformed into a winter ballroom and guests were treated to a performance by musical theatre act WestEnd2U.

Six-figure sum raised at Ben Ball

 Ben also shared the latest update with guests on the Industry Leader Challenge – The Climb – which saw a team of 15 industry leaders scale Kilimanjaro to raise money for Ben. The event also gave an insight into the vast increase in demand that Ben is experiencing, as more people than ever before are reaching out for help with their finances, due to the cost-of-living crisis.

The auctions on the night raised more than £120,000. The money raised will mean that Ben can continue to support those in the industry who are struggling or in crisis, as well as their family dependents.

 Matt Wigginton, Director of Partnerships, Engagement & Income at Ben, said: “I’m blown away by the support we’ve received at this year’s Ben Ball. It really is tough times out there for everyone at the moment, so this means the world to us and those we support. All funds raised will go to supporting those in the industry who are struggling right now – and people really are struggling. This support is life-changing and life-saving. People are having to make an impossible choice between eating or heating this winter and that’s a choice no-one should have to make”.
