The Royal United Hospital Doctors have come up trumps to support the Forever Friends Appeal’s Cancer Care Campaign with their annual celebration event. Every year the Doctors Mess at the RUH organise a successful Ball to encourage staff to get together socially, whilst pledging support to raise funds for their hospital.
RUH Doctor’s President, Jiten Doshi, set up a small committee of doctors in the hospital to help to organize their Autumn Ball and prepare for a wonderful evening of dinner and dancing at the Roman Baths on Friday 14th October. With 250 tickets sold, the guests did not only enjoy a torch-lit champagne reception on their arrival, followed by dinner, music and dance, but they were also given a magical night with the guest appearance of celebrity magician Magic Singh.
Jiten Doshi, committee member, comments, “I would like to thank the generosity of our fantastic sponsors which helped us to raise well over a £1000 for the Cancer Care campaign. This has been the largest Charity Ball hosted by the hospital, and I hope this support for the Forever Friends Appeal continues to grow.”
Jan Witt, Donor Care Officer, The Forever Friends Appeal, continues, “We can’t thank Jiten and his committee enough for all their hard work and hours of selling tickets to make their event so successful in order that the Appeal may benefit as much as possible. Every year, we are always grateful for the support of the Doctors Mess to take on such a huge time consuming project as we know how busy they all are. We hope that everyone who attended the ball enjoyed a fabulous night’s entertainment whilst fundraising for us.
This year’s fundraising proceeds will go towards raising funds for a new Gamm a-CT Scanner. This high-tech piece of equipment that can be used in the diagnosis of many of the cancers that can affect us with pinpoint accuracy. This is the first part of a two-phase Campaign to improve Cancer Services at the Royal United Hospital, Bath
