Students from Quest Professional very kindly organised a special charity ball to raise money for Children with Cancer UK and the children's medical research charity, Sparks.

crowd at The Secret Garden BallIt took place at the London Waldorf Hilton in Aldwych in May 2014

The evening was completely project managed and organised by Quest Professional’s Diploma Programme students

Prior to the event students also undertook various additional fundraising activities such as pizza sales, skydives and carol singing to raise the funds necessary to host the ball.

The Secret Garden theme aimed to gently remind guests of their childhood and how different childhood can be for those children diagnosed with cancer and other conditions.

A packed evening of entertainment

The evening started with a fabulous drinks reception followed by a three course meal and lots of entertainment, including:

  • Britain's Got Talent winner, Spelbound
  • An auction hosted by celebrity auctioneer, James Braxton of Bargain Hunt and Flog It! - prizes included a diamond bracelet and two return tickets to New York
  • A magician
  • A raffle
  • Magical stilt walking characters

A huge fundraising success!
