Inatech proud to support Butterfly Ball

At Inatech we firmly believe that corporations have a duty to share their success with charities. For that reason, we were proud to support the Butterfly Ball earlier this summer.

The Butterfly Ball is the main fundraising event of charity Caudwell Children, the charity of John Caudwell, head of Caudwell Group, which owns mobile phone giant Phones4U. The charity benefits special children throughout the UK, with direct donations of treatment, therapy, specialised equipment and dying wish holidays, and every pound raised goes directly to the children. This makes Caudwell Children unique amongst other children’s charities with similar aims for children and young people with debilitating conditions.

This year marked the tenth anniversary of the Butterfly Ball, which has grown to become a glamorous events over the past decade, attracting thousands in donations and support from celebrities and corporations. So far in its history, the Ball has raised £11 million for children across the country.

At this year’s event, which took place on 20th May, the glitzy guest list included Joan Collins, Dame Shirley Bassey, Penny Lancaster Stewart, Usain Bolt, Colin Jackson,Alesha Dixon, Frank Lampard,Mikey Graham, Diversity, Rachel Stevens, Sinitta, John Prescott and Liz Hurley.

A major highlight of this year’s ball was an hour-long performance from Sir Elton John. In the recent past, other celebrities such as Bruce Forsyth and Robbie Williams have offered their help to the charity.

Inatech contributed to this year’s event, and looks forward to doing so in future; Caudwell Children is a fantastic charity that provides services for children with over 30 debilitating diseases and conditions.
