The Purple Ball was back with a bang after an absence of 4 years.
160 people attended this event at the Harbour Hotel, Guildford on 12 th March. As Topic of Cancer is a local charity the idea was to use local performers so, as well as enjoying a 3 course meal, guests danced to local band, Sultana, were photographed by Chris Mann, a local professional photographer, and were entertained by magician, Richard Kettle. The MC for the evening was Surrey’s own Peter Gordon and Topic of Cancer’s very own choir, ToCVoices, added their musical contribution to the evening.
There was a Live Auction, a Silent Auction and a Raffle. Prizes included a Hot Air Balloon Ride, a trip on a light plane to the Northern Lights, a laptop and a family portrait session. We are so grateful to all those who made contributions. You will be pleased to hear that in excess of £14,000 was raised.
Photos of the evening are available at £3 per digital copy through the link below with the proceeds going to Topic of Cancer:
