Well, the evening is nearly upon us…tonight we will be celebrating at our annual Summer Ball!
For the fifth year, some hundred people will gather in the heart of Constable Country to enjoy an elegant evening of fine dining, live music and of course dancing until dawn.
Each year, MS-UK is overwhelmed by the support of companies who donate items to our auction and raffle. Tonight we have so many wonderful treats in store for our winners, including crafty goodies from Do Crafts, McCall Pattern Company and Search Press. We have yummy treats from the Cardamon Tea Lounge & Shop, Retro Corn, tastecard and Colchester Brewery. There is something for the gentlemen too, who can win a beard kit from Mo’s Bros and men’s toiletries from Chemist Direct.
No raffle would be complete without the chance to experience some fantastic days out. A big thank you to everyone who donated these, including the East Anglian Railway Museum, the Thursford Collection, St Peter’s Brewery, the Arch Climbing Wall, Colchester Castle and Brit Movie Tours. Our guests will even have the chance of enjoying some beginner swing lessons with Swing Patrol!
The main event of the evening is our auction. A huge thank you to Ufford Park Hotel, Golf & Spa and Brickendon Grange who have donated golfing prizes. Bidders could also enjoy a Glamping experience with Browning Bros, a stay at the Orwell Hotel or pick their own treat by winning a Red Letter Day voucher, kindly donated by Mintel.
The generosity of these donors and our guests tonight ensures MS-UK can continue to support people affected by multiple sclerosis, and that’s what it’s all about. Thank you to everyone involved, for helping us be here now and in the future.
Now it’s time for us to get our dancing shoes on!
