Thank you to everybody who gave their support to SeeBelfast at the recent Gala Ball. It was a great night and the goodwill towards the charity was very encouraging. We were overwhelmed by your generosity, raising £1538.00 on the night! Which will increase further with Gift Aid (thank you HMRC!). We will make sure every penny is put to the best use. 

For anyone who missed it, the world’s most expensive After Eight was auctioned for an incredible £140…someone likes their chocolate!

You may know we have been shortlisted as finalists in the AOP Charity of the Year 2017. If you haven’t already, please vote for us by visiting the website –

We appreciate your continuing support. Volunteering opportunities are always available, if interested email us at
