The Greatest Show on Earth!

Earlier this month, we played host to the Greatest Show on Earth – the Annual MacMillan Cancer Support Ball!

Organised by a team of dedicated volunteers, led by Judith Scott-Moncrieff, this prestigious event aimed to raise as much money as possible for MacMillan Cancer Support.  Held in a stunning marquee, supplied by Simon Bond Events, the theme was “The Greatest Show on Earth” and saw guests mingle with stilt walkers, jugglers and actors.

Throughout the evening we held an auction and a variety of raffles to help raise funds – and we have to say that everyone was exceedingly generous.  Overall, the evening raised a staggering £55,000 for the charity. It was one of the most successful balls ever held and we want to thank the 255 people who attended and gave so generously. I would also like to thank our fantastic sponsors who made a significant contribution to the final total. 

All the money raised will stay within Staffordshire and be used to help the people in our county who are suffering from – or affected by – cancer.  Again, we can’t thank everyone enough for their amazing generosity.
