The annual Dougie Mac Ball returns to Keele Hall on Friday 29th September.
Last year's event raised more than £65,000 and helped to purchase some Samsung tablets which now allow our Hospice at Home nurses to have access to essential patient information while working in the community.
Sheet Metal Manufacturers KMF are the main sponsors for this year's event, along with others that include Beswicks Legal, Abzorbd Events, LA International and Trees By Design.
Gareth Higgins, MD of KMF said:
"Having seen so many people affected by cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, it makes you realise how precious life is. It is so sad to see people of all ages cope with the difficulties and challenges that these illnesses bring.
Douglas Macmillan Hospice is a tremendous support network, for both patients, their families and friends. Their understanding and compassion and reassurance gives great comfort at a time when needed most, and that is why are happy to support the Dougie Mac Annual Ball".
Tables of 12 for this year's event cost £900, which includes a welcome drink, a 5-course meal and entertainment throughout the evening.
Other recent KMF fundraising events for Dougie Mac have included 18 female employees taking part in the Moonlight Walk (the highest number ever from one organisation to walk together!) and the KMF Big Quiz, which, with the help of many local businesses, raised more than £6,000 for the charity.
