Praxis Care held a Pearl Ball at the La Mon Hotel and Country Club on Friday 8th April to mark 30 years of Praxis Care providing care and support services for children and adults with learning disabilities, mental ill health, acquired brain injury and dementia.
The event was hosted by May McFettridge and included a number of special guests who have become outstanding advocates for the province over the past 30 years. These included Dame Mary Peters, Zoe Salmon, The Three Priests, Lord David Trimble, Dr Janet Gray, The Lord Mayor of Belfast Councillor Pat Convery. After a champagne reception and beautiful meal the guests danced to the ‘Kings of Swing’ into the early hours of the morning.
Nevin Ringland, founder and Chief Executive of Praxis Care stated:
“The Pearl Ball celebrates 30 years of Praxis Care providing care and support to nearly 1,500 vulnerable children and adults. It is a considerable achievement for staff that the charity has received the Investors in People and ISO 9001 awards. Praxis Care is the only Northern Irish charity to expand and win contracts in the Isle of Man, England and the South of Ireland to become the largest care charity in Northern Ireland.
The Ball was a great way to recognise the staff who make the work possible and the organisation is very grateful for support from the local business community, service users, carers and friends who helped to make the evening such a success.”
