Enfield Mayor Ali Bakır aiming for a sell-out Charity Spring Ball


The Mayor of the London Borough of Enfield is promising “non-stop entertainment” at his forthcoming Charity Spring Ball. Taking place on Saturday 18th April at La Royale Banqueting Suite in Tottenham, the event includes English and Turkish singers, Salsa and Turkish folk dancers, a big-prize raffle and much more.

Cllr Ali Bakır, who is originally from Kahramanmaras in southern Turkey and the UK’s first Mayor of Turkish origin, hopes his Charity Ball will raise thousands of pounds for local charities working with children with learning difficulties.

Talking to T-VINE, the Mayor said: “I love children and want to help give them all the best start in life. We have some fantastic local charities that are doing an amazing job supporting children with special needs, but they need funding. I hope all our community can come out and have some fun, and make this event a sell-out, so we can raise money for a very worthy cause.”

He added, “People need to hurry – we’ve almost sold out! And even if you can’t attend, please donate – every penny we raise via the Charity Spring Ball will go to local charities.”

Tickets are priced £50 per person, which includes a champagne reception at 7pm, followed by a 3-course meal comprising hot and cold meze starters, Fırın Kebabı (Lamb Kleftico) or vegetarian option (must be pre-ordered) with rice and vegetables, and baklava and ice cream for dessert. There are also complimentary soft drinks, wine, whisky and rakı. Tables seat 11 people. Carriages are at 1am.

Bookings and/or donations can be made via the Mayor’s office – telephone the Mayor’s secretary on 020 8379 4751 or email
