2nd Chance Ball 14th july

So Saturday The Ball, Wow. It was such hard work, but totally worth it, I'm so happy with the out come and everyone who came seemed to enjoy the night. I thought I would never run a ball again but have decided 2014 I will do the next one!! It was such a learning curve, but I have really learnt alot and believe next time we can make it even more profitable. We have currently collected in £3000 but have more to come in, I'm really chuffed with this and think its a nice amount.

I made a slide which was shown at the ball, so here's it is Slide please share and hopefully raise more awareness for organ donation.

Here are a few links for the entertainment we used which i highly recommend http://soundcloud.com/honeysol The band Honey Sol Simple on fire!

A big thank you to my mum, who was my one and only right hand lady, without her i couldn't have done any of it, She is such a huge support in all areas of my life and a devoted mother to all 4 of us.
