A Social Care student has branched out into event management by organising a benefit night in aid of a local charity to be held during the May Day Bank Holiday.
Rose Wambui, who is in the second year of her Social Care and Community Practice and Education Studies degree, has been busy organising a black-tie gala ball to be held on Saturday 4 May.
The Ball, which will take place at Sedgebrook Hall Hotel in Chapel Brampton from 7pm-midnight that day, is being held in aid of Northamptonshire Domestic Abuse Service (NDAS).
For the price of a ticket, the evening includes a three-course meal and music, dancing and fund-raising activities including a raffle and a silent auction.
Gifts you can bid for in the auction include seats to see the Cobblers’ and the Saints plus family touring car days at Silverstone. All proceeds raised will go toward NDAS, who support women and men affected by domestic abuse in the county.

Rose said: “I came to the University and started learning about so many things that are going on in the world that previously I had never paid much attention to, like cuts to domestic abuse shelters. Suddenly I thought – what happens to vulnerable people if they can no longer access that vital support?
“I met with NDAS to talk about how I could volunteer to help them raise funds, but I wanted to do something bigger than a general cake-bake sale.
“Organising the Ball has been full-on but, thinking of the outcome and the fun I know we’ll have on the May Day Bank Holiday, it has been so rewarding. Tickets are selling fast, but we still have a few left so book now to avoid disappointment!”
