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.
