East Anglian giant tipi hire company, Events Under Canvas, has helped raise thousands of pounds for good causes after sponsoring East Bergholt Community Fund’s inaugural Harvest Ball.

The sell-out event raised £10,000, to be shared between the Suffolk Royal Voluntary Service and East Bergholt Primary School.

Around 200 people turned out to enjoy an evening in the grounds of Ackworth House under five interlinked tipis where additional money was raised through an auction with lots including a tandem sky dive and a flight in a two-seater plane.

Jenna Ackerley, founder of Events Under Canvas and chair of the Fund, said: “As director of a local business I am always astounded by the level of support we receive from the community and I am so pleased to be able to give something back through this sponsorship. This event was made possible through the generosity of a host of companies and individuals.”
