The Children with Cancer Ball

Join us for a spectacular evening of entertainment at the The Children with Cancer Ball on Saturday 11th November 2017.  Help us raise much-needed funds to help fight childhood cancer.

A spectacular evening of entertainment

A champagne reception in the stunning Great Room of the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane will allow you to meet up with friends and put you in the perfect mood.

As ever, we can promise you an evening of spectacular entertainment, including:

Hugh Dennis
Actor, writer and comedian Hugh Dennis is possibly best known for being a regular panellist on the BBC Two satirical comedy show Mock the Week and as the father in BBC One sitcom Outnumbered. We are delighted that he has agreed to perform for guests at this year’s Ball.

The Drifters - Ray Lewis
The Drifters formed in the ‘50’s and have enjoyed numerous chart hits including More Than a Number in My Little Red Book, There Goes My First Love and Kissing in the Back Row. There have been various formations over the years, with Ray Lewis first joining the group in 1978. His first role was to re-record many of their hits with them. He now enjoys a solo career as well as touring with the band.

With a delicious three-course dinner, exclusive auction items and contributions from a host of celebrity guests, our next Ball promises to be as magical as ever.

Why your support is important

Thanks to our wonderfully generous guests, our annual fundraising ball raised over £610,000 in 2016 towards our work to help children with cancer.

We are so very grateful to all those who contributed to this terrific achievement.

Almost 4,000 children and young people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer every year. That’s 10 every day. Survival rates for childhood cancer have improved enormously over the past few decades, but cancer is still the most common cause of death in children aged one to 14 years.

With your help, we will find new ways of treating cancer and offer new hope to all children suffering from this disease.
