An introduction to The Brain Charity

The Brain Charity helps people with all forms of neurological condition to lead longer, healthier, happier lives.

There are more than 600 different conditions affecting the brain, spine and nervous system – from well-known ones like stroke, dementia and brain injury to many much rarer ones too. In total, they affect 1 in 6 people.

We are the only national charity providing practical help, emotional support and social activities for every single one – helping people pick up the pieces so they can rebuild their lives. Find out more about The Brain Charity’s services here.

History of The Brain Charity’s fundraising balls

2022 sees the 10-year anniversary of The Brain Charity’s fundraising ball.

Over that time, we’ve had many a spectacular Merseyside black tie event filled with incredible entertainment and raising all-important funds for our vital front-line work.

This year sees our charity ball return to the Crowne Plaza Hotel located on the iconic Liverpool city centre waterfront with our coolest theme so far. The Brain Charity’s Ice Ball will be the biggest and best yet!

Whether you are a long-time supporter or an organisation hearing about The Brain Charity for the first time, we are eager for you to get involved in this year’s Ice Ball.

Sponsor our charity ball to demonstrate your corporate social responsibility

Every sponsorship makes a radical difference to The Brain Charity’s front line services; through increased reach, financial support and brand recognition.  

Partner with The Brain Charity by sponsoring our flagship fundraising Christmas party to demonstrate your business’ corporate social responsibility and commitment to supporting people with all forms of neurological condition – some of the most vulnerable in our society.

Equally importantly, you and your team will be able to attend one of Liverpool’s premier black tie events. It can be a nightmare to organise the office Christmas party, so let us take that stress away and give your staff a night of lovely food and great entertainment.

It’s a chance for you to reward your employees’ hard work, and boost staff morale – working to benefit a good cause is known to increase productivity by up to 30%.
