R Charity Ball raises £35,000 towards the £10million appeal

THE Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital NHS Trust's R Charity hosted the most prestigious event in their history this month, the R Charity Ball. The R Charity Ball, was the 1st function to be held in the brand new event suite in Liverpool Football Club's (LFC) stadium, the venue provided the perfect setting for the lively evening of fundraising and celebrations. Thanks to the contributors and supporters of the event the R Charity Ball managed to raise over £35,000 towards the £10million appeal. R Charity's £10million appeal aims to ensure that the new Royal goes beyond even the NHS promise of care. The appeal will enable our Hospital to deliver the latest high technology equipment for diagnoses and treatments, and create environments that provide fantastic comforts and conveniences for patients and families. The ball was hosted by local radio DJ Simon Ross and local comedienne Pauline Daniels, who is also a keen supporter of R Charity. Entertainment throughout the night included:- a luxury auction which saw guests bidding on prizes with tea on the terrace at the House of Commons for 2, theatre tickets with hotel stays and signed sporting memorabilia from football and boxing athletes.  A raffle also took place with gifts donated from a variety of local organisations including an overnight stay at the Marriot Hotel; a meal for 4 at Gusto restaurant and a cocktail masterclass at 'Red Door' were some of the fantastic prizes.  The Lord Mayor of Liverpool Cllr Roz Gladden and LFC football legend David Johnson were amongst some of the guests who enjoyed performances from MD Productions.  Kate Mylchreest Head of Fundraising said:- "I am really proud to be a part of R Charity and the £10 million appeal. Together we will make a difference to healthcare in Liverpool. The ball was a fantastic event and was very well attended; the money raised from R Charity Ball will make a vital difference to much needed equipment which will enable our new Royal Hospital to provide an enhanced service to the people of our community for now and for years to come."  For more information on how you can get involved, just visit the fundraising  website or you can call the team on:- 0151 706 3153.
