SBH Scotland host first Bollywood Fundraiser in Glasgow

BollyFeat Dancers dancingSpina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland), treated 150 guests to their very first Bollywood Bash event at The Corinthian in Glasgow, on Friday 17 November, raising £7,000.

The event united the vibrancy of Bollywood with a twist on the traditional Christmas Night Out as well as fundraising for a worthy cause. Guests were treated to a delicious three course traditional Indian meal while henna artists were on hand to immerse guests into the rich cultural heritage of India.

Bollyfeat, an exceptional Bollywood dance troupe opened the occasion, while the DJ kept glammed-up guests on the dance floor all night playing the best of Bollywood and Bhangra tunes.

All proceeds from the event will go directly towards providing personalised support to thousands of children, young people and adults across Scotland affected by the rare, complex conditions of spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus.

Glasgow’s very own radio star Shandy Kambo was on hand to host the event. Shandy said: 

“SBH Scotland are a brilliant charity, which makes a real difference to the lives of so many families across Scotland who are affected by these lifelong disabilities. 

Shandy Kambo hosting SBH Scotland Bollywood Bash“I was proud to host their first ever Bollywood Bash and it was truly a fantastic evening. There was a real buzz all night and it was brilliant to see so many people, with many donning traditional Bollywood dress, come together to support a very worthy cause.”

Adeeba Ahmad, Fundraiser for SBH Scotland, said:

“Our first Bollywood Bash was a roaring success. We were overwhelmed with excitement from our supporters who quickly bought tickets and made this a sold out event! Our guests had a dazzling evening of cultural celebration, while raising vital funds. Without which, we wouldn’t be able to provide specialist services including financial support checks, health check clinics, counselling, and support groups to over 4,000 children, young people and their families. 

“We heavily rely on fundraising to reach our annual targets and with a goal of £1.4million to raise throughout 2023, events like these are crucial to make sure we can continue to be there for families when they need us most. At Christmas time it’s especially important for people to know they are not alone.
