Re­becca’s char­ity ball

Hinckley Times - - FRONT PAGE -

A CHAR­ITY ball is tak­ing place in Burbage to raise aware­ness of En­dometrio­sis.

The event in aid of Women With En­dometrio­sis will in­clude en­ter­tain­ment from Lit­tle n Large Events, Dale Palmer and Sarah Poko­rny.

Sweet treats will also be on of­fer from Cozvic En­ter­prise’s Vicky Bull, Katie Noo­nan and Party Pops. A raf­fle will also be go­ing on. Or­gan­iser Re­becca Collings said: “I would be honoured if you all would join me in hav­ing a fun night to for­get the stress of liv­ing with this aw­ful dis­ease and raise as much money as pos­si­ble for such a fan­tas­tic and wor­thy cause.

“If any­one would like to do­nate any­thing to the raf­fle on the night then please get in touch.

“We have some bril­liant prizes do­nated al­ready.”

Re­becca has had the ill­ness since she was 13, which in­volves the tis­sue that usu­ally lines the womb grow­ing in other parts of the body, typ­i­cally around the ovaries and fal­lop­ian tubes.

She is cur­rently on a six-month course of med­i­ca­tion to in­duce menopause af­ter a cyst burst on one of her ovaries.

She said: “Every­one has been so sup­port­ive of the event.

“It’s my way to just keep fo­cused and give back as well.”

Re­becca is mar­ket­ing man­ager for Women With En­dometrio­sis and vis­ited Lon­don with other mem­bers of the char­ity to see the start of an All Party Par­lia­men­tary Group (APPG) ded­i­cated to rais­ing aware­ness of the crip­pling dis­ease.

She will be back in the Cap­i­tal in Oc­to­ber to meet with health min­is­ters to dis­cuss ways to pro­mote aware­ness of En­dometrio­sis.

The ball is tak­ing place at Sketch­ley Grange Ho­tel in Burbage in the Bradgate suite.

Guests are asked to dress smartly for the oc­ca­sion.

The event starts at 7pm on Novem­ber 2 and tick­ets are £20 per per­son.

All money raised from ticket and raf­fle sales will be do­nated to the char­ity.
