These are a few of the comments we received about this year’s ball
 



Many thanks for all the work you put into achieving such a memorable and enjoyable event last nigh, and of course all you have done in the last year to raise funds for research into Meningitis.

Just a quick note to thank you both for all your hard work in arranging the Gala Ball.
It was a wonderful evening & we were delighted to hear the total of funds raised.

Just a note to say ‘thank you’ so much for including me on your table on Saturday at the Ball. I very much enjoyed the evening and came away with incredible admiration for you both & Scott. You are doing something quite amazing in your continued efforts to raise money for Meningitis research etc. You are bringing something very positive out of what has been an absolute trauma end tragedy to yourselves, and long may you continue

Pat



That is fantastic news! Of course, the real success lies in the preparation and organisation that you both put into everything you do, and you do it so well. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to be part of it and for the excuse to get proper dressed up too! Well done!

Lots of love, see you soon Sue



Thank you for a brilliant Gala Ball. The organisation before , during and after ( even a thank you letter) were outstanding, you should feel proud to be responsible for such a good event. The six of us in our party felt honoured to share such a great evening with your family and friends. £8400 is tremendous. Well done to all involved.
Kind regards from us all.

Sue & Andy & Guests
