Milton Keynes Hospital Charity is bringing a magical evening of fun, fine food, and dancing to raise funds for cancer patients at Milton Keynes University Hospital.
‘A Midsummer Night’s Gala Ball’ will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Bletchley, on Friday, June 24 2022.
The Gala Ball – which has a Midsummer Night theme – starts at 7pm, where guests will be welcomed with a drinks reception, followed by a three-course meal with carriages at 1am.
There will be theatre and fairies, alongside a raffle, an auction with celebrity auctioneer Charles Hanson and live music from The High Wires. There will also be entertainment from the Romeo Dance Academy.
Money raised will help enhance the care and experience of cancer patients at the hospital, including a new radiotherapy unit that will be situated next to the cancer centre.
The Gala Ball is being planned and supported by a small committee of business volunteers working alongside Vanessa Holmes and her team of dedicated fundraisers. The committee aims to encourage businesses and professionals of Milton Keynes to become involved through sponsorship and/or purchasing tickets for the evening. This year the Ball promises to be truly magical – we look forward to seeing you there.
Jan Flawn CBE – Gala Fundraising Committee
We are very excited about this year’s Gala Ball and its magical Midsummer theme. Most importantly though is the impact this will have for cancer patients and families. The cancer centre, opened in March 2020 and transformed cancer care at the hospital, but is seeing a steep year-on-year increase in patients. Monies raised from the event will enhance patient experience even more; whether that’s making them more comfortable, supporting their treatments or funding extra special items of equipment
