First and foremost, thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of you that attended the Ball or donated prizes or helped in any other way.  We really can't thank you enough!  Around 50 people attended the night in the end, and it really did mean so much that you were there supporting us.

We have counted up the pennies and, including profits from ticket sales, we raised a MASSIVE £1,821.91. 

Everybody seemed to enjoy having a flutter on the casino tables and the caricaturist was a great hit too!  Big winners of the night were Derek Viljoen, who won the most on the casinos and took home the huge suitcase hamper, and Gary Heffer, who took away the giant martini glass as he was closest to guessing there were 137 sweets inside.

We are now well on our way to hitting our fundraising target, and we will be in touch soon with details of any other events we'll be holding.  Our focus for the next few weeks is get a programme into place and start training!

If anybody has any photos from the Ball, please email them to me at  You can see some of the photos on the Events Page.
