The Irish Abroad Charitable Trust host 24th event

The annual ball of The Irish Abroad Charitable Trust once again raised substantial funds for Francis House Children’s Hospice and the Cornerstone Day Centre in Manchester.

The trust welcomed loyal supporters to the Hilton Hotel, on Deansgate in the city centre, for their 24th ball, and also many new guests who are looking forward to next year’s grand 25th anniversary event .
