Last chance to get to the midsummer ball for Beckton children’s hospice
There are only a few days left to get tickets for the Richard House Children’s Hospice Midsummer Ball at the Hilton, Canary Wharf on Thursday.
The popular, annual summer ball, hosted by the Hilton in the Community Foundation, raises funds for Richard House.
Last year’s event, attended by 130 revellers, raised £20,000 to help fund services for children and young adults who live with life-threatening, life-limiting and complex health conditions and their families.
Viv Talbot, community fundraising manager for Richard House, said: “Last year’s event was a masked ball that had an incredible atmosphere of fun and laughter. We know this year’s event will be another fabulous evening, showcasing the Richard House values of celebrating life and creating fantastic memories.”
Baris Guven, the father of one of the children who uses Richard House, will speak at the ball to highlight the importance of the hospice to the families and communities it serves, before a fundraising auction and raffle. The services provided at Richard House are free to the families supported and the majority of services are funded by voluntary donations.
