The event on November 6 will be to be held at the Waldorf Hilton, in Aldwych, London.

The evening will start at 6.45pm with a champagne reception followed by a delicious three-course meal and an auction. There will be a silent auction, followed by a live auction which will offer prizes that ‘money can’t buy’

Money raised through the event will go to Richard House Children’s Hospice, in Beckton which supports children with life-threatening and life-limiting illnesses and complex healthcare needs and their families. If you could again add that this is our flagship fundraising event, aiming to raise £100k for the hospice.

Live entertainment will be provided by The Pure Orange Band.

Renowned auctioneer Charlie Ross, of ‘Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is’ and ‘Antiques Road Trip’ fame will tempt guests to bid for a host of ‘money-can’t-buy’ prizes.

Manjeet Boparai, events manager at Richard House, said: “The annual ball promises to be a glamorous evening, full of fun, mouth watering food and dancing, while raising money for Richard House Children’s Hospice.

“Previous annual balls have been a sell out, with guests dancing the night away and carriages arriving at half-past-midnight. Please get tickets while they are still available, and be a part of one of the most exciting events in the Richard House calendar.”

Tickets cost £150 for £1,500 for a table of ten.
