Suited and booted for charity!

Jet Aire Services are pleased to announce that, for the third consecutive year, we will be sponsoring the Welly Ball, a charity event held in partnership with the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust.


Now in its 11th year, the Welly Ball welcomes guests from the University of St Andrews and competitors in the St Andrews Challenge for an unforgettable evening of dancing and revelry involving sloe gin, delicious food and live music. The dress code is black tie with (as the name suggests) a distinctive twist: wellington boots are compulsory!


Taking place on Saturday 10th November, this year’s Welly Ball is returning to Kinkell Byre for a seated hog roast dinner, followed by a lively after-party in the Scottish mud. The organisers describe the event as “elegant and sophisticated, yet light-hearted and raucous - the ultimate celebration of Britishness.”


For the fifth consecutive year, the Welly Ball is being held in support of the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust, which aims to raise awareness and support for young adults with mental health issues, and to reduce the associated stigma that accompany them.

Welly Ball Director, Cassie Legg, commented on the success of the event:


“In 2017, we were honoured to be awarded the Mary Maloney plate by Charlie Waller Memorial Trust for our continued commitment to the trust. For this we would like to thank all our guests for supporting such a worthwhile cause, and our current and past committee members for their tireless work.”


Last year’s Welly Ball raised an amazing total of £27,000. Jet Aire Services are delighted to be sponsoring the event again and we are confident that this year’s edition will be equally successful. Further information on the Welly Ball is available at wellyballstandrews.com
