Lost deposit with hotel closed & reprint of flyers

Hi everyone, as you all will know Hilton treetops closed down and also ardoe is in liquidation.  I am holding a charity ball for the amazing AberNecessities charity, and I have lost £500 in deposits. I first of all booked the hilton and lost the first deposit of £500 and then managed to secure ardoe house paying out another £500 which will only be honoured if another buyer comes in.   If I need to book another hotel they are going to expect a deposit also.   To have the deposit for a new hotel I would need more ticket sales as I dont have a sponser as yet.  I am hoping the public can help by donating a small amount of £1 to help cover the loss of deposits and also will need to pay for the reprint of the flyers and tickets with the new venue. 

I know this year has been horrible for everyone but I'm really really looking for the support from you all.  This charity is the most amazing charity in Aberdeen.  The amount of families they have helped is unreal. I only wish as a child I had them. 

Any help is appreciated.  

If you would like to buy a ticket the tickets are £65, you can pay £35 to secure your ticket and the remaining at a later date which I would give you when you purchase your ticket.  All tickets are non refundable.  I will know in 3 weeks if its to stay at the ardoe or whether the venue will be changed, either way the ball will go ahead 6th Nov 2021. 

If any companies out there would like to be a sponser please get in touch.
