The Golden Ticket Charity Ball, organised by local business lady Sally Rogers, took place on Saturday 9th March at Park Hall Pavillion, Oswestry.

The evening was a fantastic success and began with guests being greeted by the incredible Willy Wonka and the Oompa Loompas.  Guests were served a delicious three course meal before dancing the night away to the amazing Monstaball.   During the evening, an auction was held to raise monies for Sally’s chosen charity; Hope House Children’s Hospices.  An overwhelming £4117.05 was raised on the night.

Over the past 20 years Sally has been fundraising for a number of different charities.  Before the evening she had already an incredible £89,000 for charity.  This total has now topped £93,000 following this event.

“We are so grateful to Sally and everyone who supported her event for raising such an incredible amount for Hope House” said Lynsey Kilvert Hope House Fundraiser “Over 80% of the monies we need to help support local seriously ill babies, children , young adults and their families come from people in our community.  Without them, we simply would not exist.  Thanks to Sally and her guests, we will do everything we can to ensure that no family suffers the death of a child alone”.

Sally would like to say a huge thank you to all her guests and everyone involved in making the night such a success.  Watch this space for details of next year’s ball.
