Due to an unforeseen medical emergency I could not go ahead with the event. I sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Valentine's day inspired speeding dating event to fundraise for Balloon Ventures ICS charity, which gives individuals aged 18-25 years, the opportunity to volunteer in Africa for 10-12 weeks. Volunteers have the opportunity to support the local entrepreneurs in growing and establishing their micro-businesses and turning them into larger scale sustainable businesses that can, in turn, get them out of poverty.
Balloon ventures is an award-winning social enterprise program that is designed to fight poverty and making a lasting difference to the people in need. Entrepreneurs are seen as the future of the economy and by unleashing their hidden talents it opens up a world of opportunity. So far, Balloon ventures have supported 2500 entrepreneurs and invested £250,000, thus increasing average business revenue by 48%.
All monies raised will go directly towards the running costs of ICS, to ensure that they can continue to recruit volunteers who can positively impact communities worldwide. Together they can continue the fight to end poverty!
