Olympus Care Services host their 5th Annual Glitter Ball

Olympus Care Services host their 5th Annual Glitter Ball

Olympus Care Services host their 5th Annual Glitter Ball for learning and physically disabled service users in Northamptonshire.

Most people have fond memories of attending a school prom with dinner and dancing but for many people with disabilities, attending such an event is only a dream.  In 2014, Northamptonshire’s’ disabled service customers’ dreams were about to become a reality.

Determined to create a formal event which was affordable for their customers to attend, the Olympus Care Services’ management team secured a discounted venue, The Kettering Conference Centre.   With Olympus subsidising some of the costs by holding fundraising events throughout the year, customers were able to purchase a reduced price ticket.  And so the annual Glitter Ball was born!

The Glitter Ball has become an event to look forward to all year round with over 90 customers in attendance every year for an evening of good food, dancing, socialising.

“The staff at Kettering Conference Centre have been brilliant over the years.  They work really well with us and really understand the needs of the customers.  Each year I get asked by the customers when is the next Glitter Ball straight after the ball has just ended.  It is wonderful to see the excitement building up to the event and all the joy it brings people on the night.” – Emma Davies-Rota, service manager and event organiser.
