Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

LAS Ve­gas came to Ash­ford when the In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel was trans­formed as the scene for this year’s char­ity Kid­ney Ball. A limou­sine, red car­pet and a guest star Elvis im­per­son­ator, greeted guests on ar­rival for a sparkling re­cep­tion. Dur­ing the mar­quee meal, fund-rais­ing fun and games were held. Among the 250 guests were trans­plant pa­tients, re­nal con­sul­tants and nurses and friends and fam­ily of or­gan­iser Sue Hills, from Mer­sham, her­self a kid­ney trans­plant pa­tient and chair­man of Kent Kid­ney Pa­tients’ As­so­ci­a­tion. She has or­gan­ised the ball for the past nine years. A casino proved a huge draw, with a bot­tle of cham­pagne and a model Porsche for the win­ner. The event raised more than £4,000.
