Experience the joy and hope that comes Out of Africa as you celebrate the difference that the charity, Creating Better Futures is making in the lives of orphans and vulnerable children in Zimbabwe. Be inspired to help more communities defeat poverty through education and empowerment, discover how you could create better futures with us.

You will enjoy live African entertainment by talented Flame Lily band.

Meet our renowned auctioneer and BBC TV personality Charles Hanson, best known for his appearances on BBC programmes Bargain Hunt, Flog It and The Antiques Roadshow. You will have the chance to win authentic art & crafts, unforgettable experiences, holidays and unique memorabilia.

Our keynote speakers will inspire you with their first-hand experience of volunteering in rural Zimbabwean schools with Creating Better Futures.

The money raised at this unique gala will be put towards providing education, food, water and resources for orphans and vulnerable children in Zimbabwe. With your generous donations we currently feed 3008 children 2 meals per day at 10 different primary schools, during the school term. 200 of whom are sponsored, but we have hundreds of children still on the waiting list for generous sponsors. With your support at the ball, we can give the gift of education to many more children in need. It only takes £1 to feed one child for one week. In other words, your early bird ticket could help to feed one class of 60 children for one whole month.

By supporting Creating Better Futures, your donation could not only change lives, but will go a very long way. Our team are dedicated volunteers in the UK and Zimbabwe who donate their time and expertise daily. We have been blessed with rent-free office space in Reading. Therefore, 92% of every £1 donation goes directly towards supporting the children in need of your help. Why not come along to the ball and witness how our small and passionate team is making a difference, one child at a time?
