The Lancaster and District Homeless Action Service charity ball was hosted at the Lancaster House Hotel to raise money for those sleeping rough or struggling to manage their own accommodation.

The charity is committed to helping people find accommodation and learn life skills essential for independent living and engagement with the job market. Attended by 90 guests and local businesses, the event raised around £7,500 from corporate sponsorship, raffle and an auction which included Manchester United box tickets.
