The Midsummer Ball Raises More Than £70,000

The Midsummer Ball at The Hilton Brighton Metropole was once again a huge success, with over 500 attendees suited and booted with cowboy attire. The theme this year was ‘A Night of Nashville’, and room was dressed wonderfully to suit this. An evening of Southern American food was in store for the guests, as well as a spectacular evening of dancing from four brave fundraising couples; Allison Ferns and Steven Charman for Action Medical Research, Karen Thorne and Stuart Dawes for Chailey Heritage Foundation, Fran Woolley and Gavin Graimes for Chestnut Tree House, and Sharon Starr and James Harrington for The Starr Trust

Alison Ferns and Steve Charman were the eventual winners of the Britain’s Got Talent style contest, but all the contestants danced fantastically, so we would like to congratulate everyone who took part.

The main purpose of The Midsummer Ball is to raise money for charity, which this year was split between four charities; Action Medical Research, Chailey Heritage Foundation, Chestnut Tree House, and The Starr Trust. Each of these fantastic local charities do fantastic work, and help thousands in the Sussex area and beyond. Click on their names to read more about them.

The Midsummer Ball this year has so far raised more than £70,000, and this figure is still climbing! E3 produced the show for this wonderful event, and we are extremely proud of our involvement.
