Salsa NI is delighted to announce ‘The Romeo and Juliet Ball’.  This romantic night of dance and entertainment will take place on April 29th in the beautiful and classic Riddell Hall in Stramillis, Belfast.

The venue boasts a huge purpose built wooden floor perfect for a night of dancing and enchantment.  There is also free parking and bar facilities available on the night.

Tickets cost £15 per person and can be purchased at the door on arrival. All proceeds from the night will be donated to the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice to enable them to continue providing specialist nursing care to life limited children and their families living in Northern Ireland.

Chris Scullion, spokesperson for Salsa NI and organiser of the event expressed his thanks and appreciation to the local community for their support. He said;

“Salsa NI is delighted to be organising this event for the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice. The local community have been so supportive of our events in the past and we hope that you will be able to get behind our event once again this year and help us to raise as much as possible for the families who rely on the Children’s Hospice”.

Michael Nugent, Community Fundraiser for NI Children’s Hospice added;

“We are so thankful that Salsa NI has chosen to support our charity and we would like to wish them and all those attending the ‘Romeo and Juliet ball’ the best of luck.  I would encourage everyone to come along to this event as it will be a night not to be missed. The money raised through this event will allow the Children’s Hospice to continue providing our vital local services to life limited children and their families living in Northern Ireland”.

Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice provides respite and end of life care to 300 life-limited children and their families each year.NI Children’s Hospice provides, essential, specialist nursing care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions either in the child’s own home or at one of our purpose built hospices in Newtownabbey or Enniskillen. 

Care provided by NI Children’s Hospice is FREE to families; however, it costs approximately £3.5million to run the specialist service each year. The Children’s Hospice receives limited statutory funding, in the region of £1.2million which means £2.3milion needs to come from donations and fundraising.
