Martinís Gala Ball 2008


The fund is blessed to have had such amazing support from the guests at Martinís Gala Ball.
It was great to have had the contribution from so many different sources during these difficult times.

Thanks to all the sponsors and guests who ensured the evening was a huge success.

This year especially the sponsorships and donations were exceptional from friends, supporters and companies, so thanks to all of them as well.

The evening raised a brilliant total of over

Some of the highlights of the evening were the presentation of a cheque from Kate Simmons on behalf of her family and the auction of a bottle of Champagne donated by Bob and
Annette Walker which fetched £100.

It gave Ray great pleasure on behalf of the fund to present a cheque for £5000 to Steve Dayman of Meningitis UK for the research into finding a vaccine.

The immediate feedback to date from many guests has been positive, praising the food that the Hilton had laid on and also the entertainment including the Irish dancers and our resident band City Connection.
