Hav­ing a ball for char­ity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Et Business -

CALL­ING all you danc­ing queens - it’s disco time. Why not re­live the ‘70s at this year’s Make-A-Wish Ball?

A coura­geous theme, per­haps, but one that will surely get the party mov­ing. Who isn’t tempted by the tune­ful melodies of the Bee Gees, Chic, The Jack­sons and Sis­ter Sledge?

This year’s brand has been cre­ated by lo­cal de­sign agency Carter Roe.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Stephen Roe said: “Char­ity work is al­ways re­ward­ing but Make-A-Wish is par­tic­u­larly close to my heart. The de­sign cho­sen re­flects the ex­cite­ment of ‘70s dance but also the so­phis­ti­ca­tion of the Make-A-Wish Ball. I’m thrilled to be in­volved again and I’m sure that ev­ery­one will have a fun, ex­cit­ing and spec­tac­u­lar evening.”

The Make-A-Wish Foun­da­tion works hard all year rais­ing money so it can grant chil­dren with life-threat­en­ing ill­nesses a mag­i­cal wish. Last year’s event raised more than £50,000 and the com­mit­tee is de­ter­mined to do even bet­ter this year.

Gina Wrench, or­gan­is­ing ball chair­man, said: “We are so grate­ful and thank­ful to all our guests, both lo­cal and from afar, who give so gen­er­ously each year. With­out their in­di­vid­ual and busi­ness sup­port we would not be able to grant the favourite wishes of so many coura­geous chil­dren.”
