ENABLE Scotland 65th Anniversary Ball Gallery
On Saturday 18th May, nearly 400 guests joined us at Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery to mark 65 years since the charity was established by five sets of parents in Glasgow in 1954 who believed their children had the same rights as everyone else.
Scottish broadcasters Dougie Vipond and Fred Macaulay hosted the night, with guests at the milestone anniversary Ball treated to a headline performance by Heather Small, the voice of M People.
It was heartwarming to share and listen to so many inspiring stories as we celebrated 65 years of ENABLE Scotland – stories from the past and present, but also looking to the future with our inspirational Breaking Barriers partnership.
The response on the night was overwhelming and contributed to our highest ever grand total – raising over £180,000! Such a fitting way to mark our 65th anniversary year, this incredible generosity will make a huge difference to the lives of so many people across Scotland who have a learning disability.
The money raised at this year’s ball will go a long way in helping us to do just that and will allow us to reach many more individuals and families, providing the lifeline they need to break down the barriers in their lives.
This would not be possible without the generosity of our supporters at the ball and our heartfelt thanks go to all those who have contributed to its success.
