Charlie House is thrilled to confirm the gold and silver sponsors for its annual Big Build Ball.

Premier Oil, Gordon & Watson funeral directors and Worleyhave all come on board as gold sponsors to support the event, which takes place on Friday 6 December at P&J Live in Aberdeen.

Apache and Brown Shipley have also been confirmed as silver sponsors for the event.

The annual Big Build Ball, which is now in its fifth year, will welcome a sold-out crowd of almost 500 people for an enjoyable night of food, drink and entertainment.

Leading UK independent exploration and production company Premier Oil has chosen to sponsor the ball alongside supporting Charlie House's other activities this year. Paul Williams from Premier Oil said, "Charlie House is already providing fantastic support to families in the North-east of Scotland. However, the region needs a purpose-build centre to take this support to a different level and we are very pleased to help sponsor this endeavour."

Gordon & Watson funeral directors, part of Dignity Funerals Ltd, is one of the largest providers of funeral services in the UK with over 800 funeral homes and 46 crematoria across the country. Annette MacDonald, Business Manager (Aberdeen & North Scotland) said, "We have known about the amazing work Charlie House do for a while now and have tried to support them in little ways. However, this year we took on a new colleague who has had personal experience from the team at Charlie House, so we wanted to show our appreciation by offering to be one of the gold sponsors for the Big Build Ball. Once completed it is reassuring to know that the children and families who require support will have a facility on their own doorstep and not have to travel."

Worley is a leading provider of professional project and asset services in the energy, chemicals and resources sectors and has also chosen to support Charlie House through gold sponsorship of the event.

Oil and gas production company Apache North Sea is pleased to support the event as a silver sponsor. Patricia Paterson from Apache said, "Apache's approach to giving back in the communities where we operate centres on the simple philosophy to "give where we live" and we are delighted to support the Charlie House Big Build Appeal."

Brown Shipley, experts in wealth planning, investment management and lending are also thrilled to be involved. Richard McGregor, National Head of the Personal Injury team for Brown Shipley, said, "Charlie House is such a worthwhile cause and the work they do for children across Aberdeenshire is amazing. We're delighted to support this great charity and the Big Build Ball."

The profits of the Big Build Ball will support Charlie House's £8million appeal to build a specialist support centre in Aberdeen which will provide local planned and emergency respite, support and activities for children with complex disabilities and life-limiting conditions, and their families.
