This Saturday is the date originally planned for the 2020 MedEquip4Kids Shimmer Ball, which unfortunately can’t take place this year due to the difficult circumstances. If you’ve attended the Shimmer Ball before, you’ll know it’s one of our most glamorous and enjoyable social events, featuring music, dancing, entertainment, and delicious food and drink.

We’ve been proud to host the ball for the past 14 years and it usually raises around £50,000 to help us fund children’s medical equipment. We’re so sorry to be missing it this time, but we anticipate welcoming you to an even bigger and better event in 2021.

In the meantime, we hope you and your family are staying safe and well. If you’d like to make a donation in lieu of attending the 2020 Shimmer Ball, please click here. Thank you so much.

“The new beds for parents have had such a positive impact on the wellbeing of our children knowing their parent or carer is close by. But also for the parent being able to sleep comfortably next to their child has made such a difference to how they have responded to staff during difficult times on the ward. The difference a good night’s sleep makes is priceless.”
