AIR CHARTER SERVICE’S AVIATOR BALL RAISES MONEY FOR CHARITY

31 December 2011

Air Charter Service’s staff Christmas party, ‘The Aviator Ball’, has raised £14,014 for charity, thanks to the generosity of the company’s employees, who bought raffle tickets and bid on items kindly donated by the event’s sponsors.

The Aviator Ball, a 1940s aviation themed party, was held at The Aviator Hotel near Farnborough Airport. ACS staff from the Russian, German, French and UK offices celebrated the festive season along with guest of honour Erik Lindberg, grandson of pioneer Charles Lindberg, who flew over from the US especially for the event.

Staff members and their partners came dressed in vintage 40s attire, including 40s air force uniforms and ball gowns, as well as enjoying a champagne reception, three-course dinner and festive fun that lasted well into the early hours.
The night’s entertainment included music from the ACS band, as well as speeches and presentations about the company’s charitable causes, including a talk and video about ACS owners Chris and Tina Leach’s recent visit to the HEAL children’s village in India.

HEAL, Cancer Research UK and The Shooting Star Hospice are the three charities that will benefit from the money raised. So far this year ACS has donated thousands to its chosen charities, partly thanks to the company’s policy of matching however much their staff raise.
