Rainbow ball in aid of Wrexham Maelor’s children's ward raised an incredible £20,000
One hundred and ninety five guests were treated to a champagne reception, three course dinner and musical entertainment on Friday 18th March at Carden Park Resort and Spa for the Wrexham Maelor Children’s Ward Rainbow Ball.
The event was supported by principal sponsor SP Energy Networks and reception sponsors SG Estates, alongside other supporters. The energetic four piece outfit Big Beat band donated their performance that got everyone dancing, and they also did a well-received DJ set later in the evening. There was also a silent auction with variety of exciting prizes up for grabs such as sports and football memorabilia, and a live auction on the night with fantastic lots such as two tickets to attend the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations Concert taking place at the Queen’s residence Sandringham in June.
Lisa Harvey, Lead Nurse for Technology Depended Children, said: “The night was a huge success and surpassed all our expectations.
“The ball had been delayed because of the pandemic three times so it was fantastic to see everyone have such a good time on Friday.”
Ms Harvey added: “All the profit will go to buy medical equipment for the children and young people to enhance the patients’ experience on the ward.
“I’d like to thank all the ward staff who helped organise the event, it was a huge team effort for example the staff between them managed to sell 5,000 raffle tickets which is just phenomenal.”
Liam O’Sullivan – SP Manweb Director of SP Energy Networks added:
“We are delighted to be supporting the Wrexham Maelor Children’s Ward ball as principal sponsor for the third time running. SP Energy Networks are committed to engaging with and supporting the local communities we serve. We are extremely proud to take part in raising vital funds for the children treated on the ward and their families. The ward staff have worked extremely hard over the last two years and we’re so thankful for the support they provide to the local community.”
