Banking on Charity Ball to support local hospices

A team of bank workers from the RBS Group in Milton Keynes have announced they will be hosting a fund raising ball to support three local hospices and the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal in November.

09 August 2011

The RBS Corporate and NatWest Commercial and Business Banking teams in Milton Keynes, together with their colleagues from Lombard and Coutts are very much aware of the important work that Willen Hospice, Keech Hospice and the North Herts Hospice Care Association Garden House do to provide respite and hospice care across the Beds, Bucks & North Herts areas and wanted to do something to help.

With this in mind, the teams have organised a fund raising ball to be held on 11 November 2011 at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes and are looking to raise as much money as possible for their Three Hospices Challenge. As the event takes place on the 11th November, funds are also being raised for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Steve Harris, Regional Director for RBS Corporate and Institutional Banking in Milton Keynes said: 'My colleagues and I are very committed to supporting local charities and know how much good work Willen, Keech and Garden House do in and around the local area. In order to carry on doing their great work, they need funds and we are hoping our event which includes a charity auction will help. With this in mind, we are encouraging as many people as possible to put on their glad rags and join us at Stadium MK for what promises to be a night to remember. In addition, as our event is taking place on such a significant date, we will be raising money on the night for the Poppy Appeal and a very special prize will be given away at 11.11pm in support of this'.

The charity ball includes a champagne reception, dinner, charity auction, dancing and other entertainment. Tickets cost £65 per head and can be obtained from Jo Pumffrey at jo.pumffrey@rbs.co.uk. If you are unable to attend but would like to support the event or donate prizes for the charity auction, please speak to Jo on 01908 244963.
