Save the date:

As you all know we had no option other than to postpone the Banana Crumb-Ball that was supposed to be happening in September 2020.We were really disappointed as we wanted to build on the momentum from the great event we held in 2019 and to raise even more funds for the Southend Cystic Fibrosis Association.

The good news is that the Halfway House have agreed to delay our event and we have now got a new date of Saturday 9th October 2021. We know it is a long way in advance to give you notice but hopefully if it goes in your diaries now then you will be able to keep the date free.

We really hope that 2021 will be the perfect year for a huge celebration and it will be great to be able to dress up, party and raise some much needed funds. We will obviously be sending out details closer to the time but we wanted to make sure that you had the new date as soon as it had been confirmed.

Looking forward to a bigger and better Banana Crumb-Ball in 2021. We hope to see lots of you there. We raised almost £5000 in 2019 and are hoping that we can raise something similar next time. Thank you to all of those who had said they would attend in 2020 and we hope that you will join us in 2021.

As the weeks of social distancing increase and time is racing by we have had to make a decision about the Banana Crumb-Ball. Whilst we all really want the event to go ahead and to raise much needed funds for the Southend Cystic Fibrosis Association, after discussion with the charity, potential attendees and the venue we have decided to postpone our ball. In particular with the charity being for Cystic Fibrosis and this is the category where shielding has to be taken into account making large events for families difficult until things get back to normal again.

We were all looking forward to another great evening but by it being postponed for a year it gives us more time to come up with bigger and better ideas and hopefully by then everyone will be in the mood for a great party. After living in tracksuits and sports gear for months this will be a perfect opportunity to dress up and will be something to look forward to.

The new date will be a Saturday in September 2021 so we hope to be able to let you know the exact Saturday very soon so that you don’t miss out on all the fun and of course to help raise funds for the SCFA.

The venue has been great and are honouring prices agreed which is great news so we will be able to keep ticket prices at £50.
