Each year, we run two major events for Marks & Spencer:
the M&S Gala Ball and the M&S Football and Netball Tournament.
Two very different events with one thing in common…
What do these two events have in common? They both raise vital funds for three amazing charities.
We’ve been running the M&S Gala Ball and the M&S Football and Netball Tournament since 2011, raising over £1.5 million for Great Ormond Street Hospital, GroceryAid, and MacMillan Cancer Support.
The Gala Ball gives suppliers, M&S colleagues, and their charity partners the opportunity to get together for a night of glamour, networking, and entertainment. Last year, Jimmy Carr hosted the event, whilst pop stars Little Mix took to the stage, along with Britain’s Got Talent illusionist Darcy Oake, and 9-piece soul and funk band The Soul Jets.
The annual Football and Netball Tournament enables M&S to reach out to those who prefer their events to be more physical. Each year, football and netball teams comprised of M&S suppliers, partners, and staff, play alongside sports legends for this charity fundraiser.
2015 saw us move the tournament to the Emirates Stadium, home of Arsenal Football Club, where M&S directors, buyers, and suppliers, enjoyed the rare privilege to grace the famous pitch.
"Park Publishing do a fantastic job for us! The entertainment they deliver, the offer, the balance, and the way they help us recover a big slug of the revenue for charity… It’s just a tremendous all-round effort."
