Guests celebrate good times at the OIAM Charity Sparkling Afternoon Tea!

Saturday 9th March 2024 saw us host our 7th annual Sparkling Afternoon Tea at the stunning location of the Princes Ballroom, The Midland Hotel, Bradford.

Over 150 guests relaxed with their family and friends, enjoyed a delightful afternoon tea and heard about the charitable works our organisation does with children and young people across Bradford.

Our guests had a fun packed afternoon devouring delicious food and partaking in games for our free prize give-aways! 

Fun memories were also captured thanks to The Broadway Bradford’s support of our photobooth. Guests also enjoyed taking part in our luxury raffle and silent auction. Our thanks go to everyone who supported with donations for this.  It truly was an enjoyable afternoon for all!

It was wonderful to host so many people, continue to raise awareness of our cause and raise vital funds to help us to continue engaging, enriching and enhancing children and young people’s lives across the Bradford district.

Kath Thackray, Thomas Niamh Contracting Limited: “It was our pleasure to be able to provide support in terms of sponsorship for this fantastic event. We enjoyed a very pleasant, fun and relaxing afternoon whilst supporting a very worthwhile cause”.

It’s lovely to hear all about the fantastic work the charity does with the young people. Keep up the good work. You are making such a difference to their lives. We can’t wait for next year’s event!”.

Emma Cummins: “It was lovely to be back at this event. Everyone on our table had a wonderful afternoon, and it was great to see the great charity work carried out across our city with children and young people”.

A big thank you to our event sponsors, Thomas Niamh Contracting Limited, Bermar Building Limited, JCT600 and The Broadway Bradford, who’s invaluable support helped this event be a success.
