After the son of a member of our team was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma in 2015 and looked after by the amazing Teenage Cancer Trust – as a team we felt compelled to do something to raise funds for them as a way of saying thank you and help support the charity in continuing with their treatment and care of young people and their families during this incredibly difficult time.
We therefore arranged a Bollywood Ball – 145 people attended the event, 54 business and individuals providing sponsorship, auction and raffle prizes.
We are delighted to say that together we raised an amazing £25,443 for Teenage Cancer Trust and with the generous support of St. James’s Place Wealth Management who matched the funds we raised, a further £24,443 for other great causes supported by the St. James’s Place Foundation. A total of £50,886 which is fantastic and we are sure that this will make a difference to many lives.
