Nightingale House Hospice is inviting people to their fourth annual fundraising ball to help raise money for the charity.
“The Crimson Ball” will take place on Saturday 1st October at the DeVere Carden Park Hotel and has been sponsored by information technology specialists, MWL Systems Ltd.
Tickets are priced at £60 per head, which includes a champagne reception, a three course meal with live music entertainment and the chance to win some exciting prizes. There is also a range of corporate packages available, starting from £750.
Last year’s charity ball raised a grand total of £20,000 which was used to provide specialist care to patients and families at the hospice.
Nightingale House Hospice provides specialist palliative care services free-of-charge to patients and their families across a wide area stretching from Wrexham, Flintshire, East Denbighshire to Barmouth and the border towns including Oswestry and Whitchurch.
This year alone, it will cost £2.46 million to run the hospice, this equates to £6,700 per day. Only 19% of this comes from statutory government sources. The hospice therefore greatly relies on the generosity of the communities it serves.
