Martin House Hospice Glitter Ball

Every year, the fabulous Martin House Hospice host a charity ball to raise much needed funds. Jonathan and Katrina have long been supporters of the amazing work that they do and this year’s Ball was no exception. We love a good party (we’ll attend the opening of an envelope given half a chance!) so a few of us dressed up and headed to Rudding Park to join them and a few of the Emmerdale stars. We scrub up quite well don’t you think?

Last year, Friends 4 Dinner offered a prize of a dinner party for 6 people, in their own home, with a personal chef and waiting staff and were absolutely astounded when it reached £1800 at auction. So astounded that we offered a second prize and this raised a further £2000. With that in mind, we offered the same prize for this year’s Ball with the hope that we’d at least reach similar amounts. We were completely blown away, and immensely proud for the first dinner for 6 to reach £4000 and for the second to match it, meaning that we raised a phenomenal £8000.00 for this amazing charity. Yes, you read that right – £8000.00! We think that speaks volumes about the quality and high standards of our food and our team and we’re incredibly humbled by this. A huge thank you to both bidders – we couldn’t have done it without you!

Interim reports indicate that the Glitter Ball is on target to raise an incredible £85000.00 from this year’s event and we know that will make a massive difference to the Hospice and their work.

We’re already looking forward to next year’s Ball – if you’d like to join in the fun pop the date in your diary now – Friday 11th May 2018. See you there!
