Trauma Research UK and ITV’s Nik and Eva Speakman to Host First Charity Ball Fundraiser in Leeds

Trauma Research UK, a national charity dedicated to advancing mental health care and research, presents its inaugural charity ball fundraiser on Saturday, September 16th, 2023, at Leeds City Hilton Hotel. The glamorous event, hosted by the charities founders and Life Change experts Nik and Eva Speakman, aims to raise crucial funds for innovative mental health therapies, bringing hope to those in need. 

The charity is centred on the belief that all mental health issues stem from prior traumas. Their mission is to identify and fund effective therapies for the best chances of recovery. The charity offers a weekly ‘Help & Support Programme’ via Zoom, led by volunteers who have triumphed over their own traumas, providing a friendly environment for those awaiting therapy. Their focus revolves around three core elements: instilling hope, providing immediate support, and raising funds for research to develop new therapies. With compassion and dedication, Trauma Research UK empowers individuals to overcome mental health challenges and improve overall well-being and quality of life for those in need. 

Nik and Eva Speakman, esteemed hosts of the event said, “Join us for an unforgettable evening of entertainment, fun, and charity! Your presence will make a remarkable difference in advancing mental health care and research,” 

“We are thrilled to host this charity ball, raising awareness and funds for mental health research. Together, we can transform lives and create a brighter future for those affected,” added Sarah Floyd, Charity Operations Manager.  

The charity ball will feature a splendid drinks reception, a sumptuous three-course meal, live entertainment, auctions, and more surprises to captivate our guests. By attending this event, you help support those suffering and enable new therapies to be available to all.
