Emirates Tours will be lending its support to the Childline North West Ball, taking place on 6th March in Manchester.

Emirates Tours will be donating a prize to an auction that will take place at the Ball. The prize consists of a five night stay at Six Senses Zighi Bay in Oman, including return Emirates Economy Class flights from the UK to Dubai plus returns private car resort transfers and is being offered in conjunction with Emirates Tours' luxury hotel partner, Six Senses Resorts & Spas.

The Childline North West Ball is a fundraising event for the Child's Voice Appeal which aims to raise money to ensure that the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) Helpline, and Childline itself, continues to be manned by qualified counsellors who are trained child protection officers and to assist in providing training for its staff and volunteers who answer calls to the hotline.

Emirates Tours' donation to the Childline North West Ball auction follows several years of donating luxury family holidays to children's charities. Previous years have seen Emirates Tours donate to Treehouse, the national charity for autism education, the Teenage Cancer Trust and Great Ormand Street Hospital.

Beth Alcorn, Product & Marketing Manager Emirates Tours UK said: "Emirates Tours is delighted to be involved in fund raising at the ChildLine Ball. All proceeds from the auction on the night will go to the Child's Voice Appeal, which is raising vital funds for ChildLine itself and the NSPCC Helpline for concerned adults. We have combined with our hotel partner Six Senses Resorts & Spas to provide a superb luxury holiday prize - one that we hope will attract big bids on the night, for what is undeniably a very worthy cause."

The Six Senses Hideaway Zighi Bay in Oman is situated on a broad stretch of pristine beach with the Hajar Mountains in the background. On arrival guests choose from one of three extraordinary entrances, via speedboat, four-wheel drive over the mountains or tandem paraglide. The Hideaway retains local cultural influences and was designed to blend with its natural surroundings. The spa features two Arabian-style hammams, and the wide-ranging menu of regional and Six Senses signature treatments focuses on holistic and pampering therapies using natural and environmentally-friendly products.
