Town Hall charity ball raises £13,000 for Sarcoma UK

The organisers: Sally Precious-Ward, Zoe O'Reilly, Emily Travis, Rebecca PerryThe organisers: Sally Precious-Ward, Zoe O'Reilly, Emily Travis, Rebecca PerryA charity ball in Marlborough has raised over £13,000 for Sarcoma UK.



The sold-out event held in the Town Hall (February 15) was mc’d by TV presenter Alastair Green.  Guests were treated to a reception and three-course meal supported by Rick Stein and Ramsbury Brewery.

Amongst the organisers was local resident Emily Travis, a mother of two young children, who is living with terminal sarcoma - a rare and aggressive form of cancer.

Since her diagnosis, Emily and her family have benefitted from the support of Sarcoma UK which is a small focused charity working to raise awareness of this little-known and devastating disease.

The money raised will help those affected by sarcoma, as well as funding ground-breaking research.

Sponsors and donors for the event included Redrow Homes, The Food Gallery, Kim Vine, Marlborough Golf Club, Marlborough College Summer School, The Wyvern Theatre and long list of Marlborough eateries, coffee bars, services and shops. 

Emily Travis: “This event proved to be very popular within the Marlborough community and we were very pleased to have sold all 150 tickets within 24 hours of their release. We have been totally overwhelmed by the support of local businesses, from Barnes coaches who provided transport from the villages, to Sue Brady who catered the dinner."

“Sarcoma UK has been indispensable to myself and my family as we learn to cope with my diagnosis and myself and my friends that have organised this ball wanted to repay them for their support."

 

“We are also very grateful to Redrow for donating such a large amount of money towards the cause as it ensured all of the money raised goes directly to the charity without having to make deductions for expenditure.”

Sabrina Dawson is sales manager for Redrow South West: “Emily is such an inspiration and has been an asset to Sarcoma UK, helping them raise much needed funds to help those who need it.  The charity ball sounded like such a fantastic event and we were delighted to support it.”
