It was the night One Kind Act grew in the hearts and minds of people.
The Step A- Head ball was an extraordinary night which took over 500 guests on an unprecedented journey. It started with a champagne reception, light hearted banter over canapés and laughter in an enchanting musical ambiance. Call for dinner was followed by powerful speeches about personal journeys of loss, heartbreak, bereavement and despair from which emerged hope, rehabilitation, redemption and ultimately triumph. There was a mesmerised silence, standing ovations, tears of empathy, tears of joy culminating in the sense of being deeply connected to the joy and suffering of humanity.
The astonishing band glittered and interacted with the guests filling the room with an ineffable joie de vivre and a full dance floor.
Inclusive of ticket sales, sponsorships, donations, auction and sale of raffle tickets, an outstanding amount of just over £100,000 was raised. These funds will be deployed towards life-affirming care for those suffering the aftermath of brain injury in UK and abroad. Words cannot do justice to how powerfully lives will be transformed and lives will be saved.

A young girl's story.....
‘When one door closes, another opens’.
In 2016, Alisha, 26, daughter of the Chairman of One Kind Act, had an unexpected brain haemorrhage. Rushed in for emergency surgery, she was given only a slim chance of survival.
Today she has improved remarkably on a journey that still stretches far into the future.
In her typical compassionate way, she wants to reach out and help others in similar situations who may not have had the same support and medical care she was fortunate to receive.
Watch the video below for Alisha's Story
Too often, victims of brain injury do not have access to the level of care required to save their lives or to adequately re-assimilate into society. Rehabilitation for them is virtually non-existent, or where available, is highly expensive. Some victims of traumatic injuries face some very complex and challenging needs, perhaps having to re-learn to walk, talk and formulate thought.
All funds raised at the Ball will support Causes, here in the UK and abroad, who tirelessly work for the well-being of sufferers with brain trauma, miraculously enhancing their lives through physical and mental rehabilitation.
The Step A-Head Ball will be a fun, living and giving night, with a 3 course dinner, unlimited free drinks, an auction and raffle prizes to be won. For entertainment, a world class live band, The Function Band, is guaranteed to keep the dance floor busy and the ambiance lively.
