The Hope Ball Team
A group of friends got together to start raising funds for Children with Cancer UK by organising a charity ball.
Fay Hirel, a member of the group, said:
We had seen friends of ours go through very difficult times as their children were diagnosed with cancer so we wanted to do what we could to help. We decided to hold charity events, such as The Hope Ball and themed nights. Our group includes a DJ, photographer and a friend who dresses venues for weddings and parties so it felt like the obvious thing to do!
When asked how The Hope Ball went, Fay said:
With around six months of planning, our first Hope Ball was a huge success. We had over 360 people attend, a large raffle, music bingo, an auction and a fantastic band. All of the hard work paid off and the night was amazing and quite overwhelming.
