In 2019 the staff and nurses of the Children's Ward at Worcestershire Royal Hospital held the first charity ball and raised over £6,000 for children and families affected by cancer in Worcestershire.
Everyday our young patients are treated for life-threatening childhood cancer that affects around 100 children each year in the UK. Nearly half of those are categorised as 'high-risk', a diagnosis that's even more challenging to treat and increases the need for our additional support.
The funds raised from the Ball went towards providing families affected by cancer with support throughout their cancer journey, helping them with the widespread challenges they face daily and to make sure all those little things life are taken care of.
With the funds we hope to raise at this years Ball, we aim to provide 30 families with a £500 gift card each to have a weekend at Centre Parcs, at a total cost of £15,000 and continue with our family support programme.
This year Ball takes place on 3rd October 2020
