A summary of the 2022 Gala Ball at the Sheraton Hotel Edinburgh.



We kicked off the evening with a welcome from our host for the evening, Barrie Wilkins.


Barrie’s introduction was then followed by a speech from Hibernian Community Foundation CEO, Lewis Melee who touched upon our work during his time at the helm along with our plans for the future within our new purpose built hub.



We then had a look back through some photos of our work since 2019, watch the video below!



Our guests then tucked into a beautiful three-course meal. For starter we had Haggis Bonbons followed by Balmoral Chicken for main and to round off the meal for desert we enjoyed fresh strawberries served with sorbet. Throughout the meal we showcased a selection of our projects through a short series of videos. 


It was then time to welcome Hibernian Football Club legend, CIS cup winning captain, Rob Jones to the stage for a Q&A with Barrie Wilkins. Rob gave a real in-depth insight to his time at the club and shared some exclusive stories from the dressing room that had the whole room engaged.



With all the listening over with, it was time to dance the night away. We were delighted to welcome along the ‘Rubix Cubes’ band who provided the live entertainment for the evening. It was safe to say they had a full dance floor instantly as they played some 80’s classics for our supporters to ‘get into the groove’.
