It was a studio 54 inspired party to raise funds for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. The event supported one of the world’s leading cancer charities, helping them to build the Oak Cancer Centre and ensuring The Marsden stay at the forefront of cancer research. Raising over £50,000, with every single penny raised from ticket sales to the auction being put directly to the charity. Transforming the space with with real palm trees, endless disco balls and even a white horse à la Bianca Jagger to take you back in time to the disco days. With the party not enough for committee hosts, they also started the day with a panel of speakers who also support the charity.
“This year, we sought a day of two halves: a thought-provoking talk series in the morning followed by a disco extravaganza in the evening. Think of it as some inspiration for the mind before the celebrations on the dance floor. It’s a spin on the traditional fundraising format. Now in our second year of organising events for the Marsden, we are always moved by the stories we hear from guests, donors and performers. These personal narratives inspire us to do more and ensure we keep engaging more people with the power to change lives.” - Alexandra Carello and Rosanna Falconer, Committee Chairs
