Char­ity ball set to raise funds for pa­tients’ beds

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE HOSPICE -

PLANS have been an­nounced for the East Cheshire Hos­pice an­nual char­ity ball at Mere Golf Re­sort and Spa on Fri­day, Novem­ber 27.

Win­ter Won­der­land will be the theme, with a tar­get of rais­ing £60,000 to­wards the char­ity’s new bed ap­peal.

Many firms are con­sid­er­ing us­ing the event as their staff Christ­mas party and sup­port­ing one of the high­lights of the hos­pice’s fundrais­ing cal­en­dar. The or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee, which in­cludes high pro­file sup­port­ers Claire Thor­n­ey­croft, Ginny Blunt and Sharon Ron­nie, prom­ise a night of fun and en­ter­tain­ment as they look to beat last year’s to­tal of £57,000.

The com­mit­tee is keen to hear from any busi­nesses in­ter­ested in spon­sor­ing el­e­ments of the Ball with pack­ages which in­clude tick­ets. Con­tact Camilla Crockett at East Cheshire Hos­pice on 01625 610364 for more in­for­ma­tion.

Tick­ets priced £75 each, or £750 for a ta­ble of 10, are now on sale at eastcheshire­hos­pice.org. uk/ball. A lim­ited num­ber of VIP tick­ets are avail­able at £95 each, in­clud­ing pri­or­ity seat­ing, a gift for each guest and ta­ble wine.

New beds are needed for hos­pice in­pa­tients and it is hoped the char­ity ball will raise most of the funds for re­place­ments.

Hav­ing used the pop­u­lar fixed-price re­tainer ser­vice for their lo­cal busi­ness for the last 12 months, the group has re­cently re­newed its agree­ment while also ex­tend­ing it to cover two other sis­ter busi­nesses; Ul­tra­safe – a spe­cial­ist
