Time to get dressed up and have a ball!


We have a fantastic evening planned and would love you to join us.


Saturday 2nd March 2024 at 7pm


We are excited to invite you along to our first charity gala ball, which promises to be an incredible evening with dinner, fizz, live entertainment, and great company as we continue to support incredible charities like Reubens Retreat and Jolly Josh.

Every year, thousands of you join us and bring along your trucks to show at the GNWTS, and what a show it is, with the support and kindness you guys give, the fun, the memories and the friendships made.

We know you scrub up well and have some moves to strut on the dance floor! So come and join us, and let’s have a ball.

Our Charities 

Rueben’s Retreat

Supporting families who have suffered the loss of a child or have a child living with medical complexities.

They support the families with emotional and practical support so they do not have to go through the journey alone.

From a listening ear, counselling, fun sessions, helping to make memories, peer support groups, practical advice, bereavement support and wellbeing activities for parents to recharge.

Jolly Josh

Jolly Josh is based in Rochdale, a centre that provides dedicated peer support and safe spaces for children with complex medical and physical needs.

Their aim is to end isolation and connect families, enabling them to support each other and thrive.
