You shall go to the ball

Rob George 8th Nov, 2018

WORCESTER and Malvern residents are invited to put on their glad rags and join a hospice team for its glitzy, annual fund-raising ball.

The St Richard’s Hospice Snowdrop Ball will be held at Sixways on Saturday, November 17 with a drinks reception, three course meal, grand auction and raffle all on the menu.

Live music from the Smooth Criminals, a casino and a disco for party-goers to dance the night away while raising money for St Richard’s are also included.

Ria Simons, hospice fund-raiser, said: “This event is the most glamorous in the hospice’s calendar and is always a great night out.

“It’s the perfect excuse for guests to get dressed up and ready for the festive season – all while raising money to help us continue our hospice care.

Last year’s glittering celebration saw more than 300 guests enjoy the festivities, raising more than £25,000 for the hospice’s free, specialist care.

This event is sponsored by Knight Frank and Shrubbery Dental Practice.

Katie Griffiths, business development manager at Shrubbery Dental, said: “St Richard’s Hospice is very close to many of our team members’ hearts as nearly all of us have had friends or family who have had to lean on the hospice for support and care – so it felt a perfect fit when choosing which charity to support this year.

Shelley Stephenson, an associate at Knight Frank, said: “Having visited the hospice and met the staff, we have seen first-hand the amazing work they do across all departments.

“Before we arrived, we weren’t sure what to expect – but we found it to be such a welcoming and uplifting place.”

The ball begins from 7pm and a table of 10 is costs £60 per person.
