Black-tie gala to be held on Friday September 13 in aid of Cancer Centre Appeal

Guests will be dancing the night away on Friday September 13 as Milton Keynes Hospital Charity holds a special Gala Ball for its Cancer Centre Appeal.

The glittering gala will be the flagship event for the charity’s £2.5 million appeal, which has seen the Milton Keynes community come together to raise funds for the new cancer centre currently being built at Milton Keynes University Hospital.

No fewer than 350 guests will don their black ties and ball gowns at the DoubleTree by Hilton Milton Keynes, before enjoying an evening of food, wine and entertainment.

And Milton Keynes Hospital Charity’s head of fundraising Vanessa Holmes says guests from across Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas are in for a stunning evening.

She said: “We have a whole host of treats for our guests – including delicious food and wine, as well as magicians, photo booths and live entertainment. This is about raising money to transform cancer care in our region, but we also want to make sure everyone has a fantastic time!”

The hospital charity’s cancer centre appeal is raising funds to support the building of the new centre – a more spacious, bright and welcoming place for people undergoing treatment for cancer and their families. As well as a chemotherapy area and information and support suite, the centre will feature a 24-bed inpatient ward, break out areas, a complementary therapy room, landscaped gardens and special artwork to create a calming and more comfortable environment.

It will transform cancer care for people in and around Milton Keynes.
