Whistler Charity Event in aid of Nightingale House Hospice
Blooming marvellous: charity ball raises thousands for hospice
A charity ball has left a local hospice blooming after raising thousands of pounds.
Up to 180 celebrated an evening of glitz and glamour in aid of Nightingale House at the Trevor Arms.
Organised by Kay Whistler and Amy Williams in partnership with Kate at Blooming Beautiful, Wrexham, generous guests raised more than £10,000 for Nightingale House to continue their vital care for people whose lives are shorter than they should be.
Guests enjoyed a glamorous drinks reception and three-course dinner, followed by a charity auction, raffle and dancing into the early hours of the morning.
The evening proved to be an outstanding success for the hospice which, every year, helps more than 5,437 people living with life-limiting illnesses in the North Wales and border areas.
This is the second year that the charity ball has taken place with supporters showing even more generosity than ever before.
" The Hospice holds a special place in my heart following the care and comfort they provided to my dad, "Ray" during his lasting moments.
This care emphasises the help and support offered to not only patients but their families too throughout difficult times and the Hospice certainly topped all expectations of palliative care.
There are so many families touched by cancer and this is what gives me the drive and determination to succeed in Fundraising that can assist others.
The best moment from us all as a team is handing the donations raised over to the Hospice.
My biggest thanks goes to the people that donated and supported us to make the event a huge success, "We are very fortunate to have a charity such as Nightingale House, which takes end-of-life care into account with such compassion and value, on our doorstep and it is an honour to be able to help them continue their vital work.
The money that the ball has raised will go such a long way in helping our local hospice and ultimately, that is what makes everything worth it."
Luke McDonald of Nightingale House said: "The effort that Kay, Amy and Kate put in to making the charity ball a success is unbelievable.
