The Circus Ball held a fundraising event hosted by the Patrons of PACT Educational Trust, The Lord & Lady Nicholas Windsor. The event launched the BroadOak Bursary Fund which will ultimately help many children aged 3-18 gain access to the best that the UK has to offer in terms of personalised, character-based education.


The Circus Ball at Kensington Palace kick-started a five-year campaign to raise the more than £1 million
needed to launch the fund. The amount raised will be managed by the trustees of PACT Educational Trust, which has more than 20 years’ experience in financing high-quality education. The needs-based bursaries will range from the generous to small awards, helping underprivileged and middle-income families alike
afford an education at one of PACT’s four visionary schools. As the schools grow the fund will too,
through charitable donations and sound investment decisions.

There were plenty of opportunities to support the fund pledging to purchase bespoke luxury items, paying to play a variety of games, and bidding on both the silent and live auctions; all this while enjoying circus entertainment, a fashion show, plenty of champagne and canapés, cocktails, bowl food and Live music.

If you or your business is interested in hearing more about how to contribute to the fund, please contact:
