Hav­ing a ball for char­i­ties

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

A grate­ful Ash­ford fam­ily have thanked the scores of peo­ple who sup­ported their char­ity fundrais­ing ball held at the Ash­ford In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel last Fri­day night.

The grand ball night raised an in­cred­i­ble £6,000 to be split be­tween two char­i­ties.

The event at the Si­mone Weil Av­enue ho­tel was at­tended by 280 peo­ple and in­cluded a din­ner, disco, live mu­sic, a raf­fle, tombola, and magic.

It was or­gan­ised by Martin Kemp in hon­our of his mum Jean, who was di­ag­nosed with breast can­cer for a se­cond time last year, and who turned 60 in Jan­uary.

He de­scribed it as an in­cred­i­ble evening that will see the money raised shared be­tween the Pil­grims Hospice, where Mrs Kemp is cur­rently be­ing cared for, and Can­cer Re­search UK.
