The annual ball is a great team effort involving many people and we are truly grateful for the support of FutureMeds, HSBC, all our table sponsors, prize donors, the wonderful Lady Marmalades dance group and specifically Claire Lippitt, Michele McWha and Annette Mullane. The funds raised on the night will directly benefit the many children and young adults affected by neurological disabilities, supporting them to achieve their full potential at Rainbow Hub.”
Paul Chambers, Director of FutureMeds, said:“We were delighted to be able to support Lisa, Paul, and the team at Rainbow Hub by sponsoring the Moulin Rouge Ball. A great time was had by all and to raise £31,000 for the charity is a wonderful achievement.
