Branch Fundraising Ball - Saturday 19 October 

It isn’t too late to get tickets for our Fundraising Ball, which will take place on Saturday 19th October at Moor Hall, Cookham SL6 9QH.

The evening will commence at 6:30pm with a welcome drink as you arrive. Local photographers ‘Photography by Us’ will take formal shots of people arriving in their finest attire, then throughout the evening a photo booth will be available for fun pictures, all of which can be purchased on the night. There will also be a close-up magician, Sam Strange, to entertain you before you are seated for your three-course dinner.

Entertainment for the evening will be provided by Gravity. A raffle and auction will take place later in the evening with a number of excellent items.

Tickets are £65 per head and available by emailing Nicola Lewington at
