Over 200 guests arrived in style on Saturday at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel in central Manchester for the annual MedEquip4Kids Shimmer Ball. This year the event had a Las Vegas theme and featured a casino, as well as the popular Musical Bingo.

Following pre-dinner drinks and a sumptuous three-course meal, an auction was held for fabulous prizes including a West End theatre weekend in London, a media leisure package with all the latest gadgets, and dinner prepared by a private chef in your own home. As usual the raffle prize was a stunning diamond ring, kindly donated by Warren James. After that our guests danced the night away accompanied by a DJ. The playlist was in keeping with the Vegas theme, and of course included everyone’s favourite Elvis tracks.

The Shimmer Ball raised an amazing £37,000 to provide the equipment and resources needed to give babies and children better health. This year the proceeds are supporting a family room at the Rosemere Cancer Centre at Royal Preston Hospital.

A huge thank you to everyone who attended and to our sponsors VINCI Construction UK, Bowkers, Cheshire Scaffolding, Plaster Plus, Imtech and RPS.

“The specialist treatment chairs are a new vital resource for the therapy team and nursing staff to be able to safely and comfortably sit extremely complex, dependant, critical care patients out of bed. The chairs allow us to begin the patient’s rehabilitation journey by providing appropriate postural support at the same time as pressure relief to allow the patient to build the muscle strength to hold themselves up against gravity. This allows them to begin to interact with their environment in a more normal way, enabling them to participate in meaningful activities such as meal times and activities of daily living.”
