Inaugural charity ball event raises thousands for city hospice cause

The very first FUSE event raised more than £7,000 for Salisbury Hospice Charity.

The event was held at The Stones Hotel and was organised by FUSE’s corporate fundraiser, Louise Crompton, and Carol McGeary of McGeary Recruitment & Consultancy.

The event was sponsored by Ambassadors Business Breakfast Club.

And organisers said the evening surpassed all expectations, with more than 200 tickets sold in advance.

The event included a silent auction, balloon tombola, competitions, a magician, fun casino, grand Scalextrics, and live music from The Few to get people dancing.

Salisbury’s new mayor, Atiqul Hoque was the special guest of the evening.

Salisbury Hospice Charity is one of his chosen charities for the year.

Louise Compton said of the evening: “It was a pleasure to host such a fun evening of entertainment. I am very grateful to everyone who supported us in making this evening a night to remember.

“The evening would have not been possible without the generosity of everyone in the corporate community all working together.

“I would particularly like to mention Carol McGeary, Liz Beveridge and Deanna Dykes who have given up their time to help make the event special and to the team of volunteers from Nationwide Building Society.

“I am overwhelmed with the amount raised on the evening, every penny will be spent locally and go towards continuing to fund the vital services Salisbury Hospice provides to our community.”

Paula, head of fundraising for Salisbury Hospice Charity, added: “The evening was an overwhelming success, bringing together corporate supporters from across the region for a tremendous evening of fun.

“I’d like to thank everyone who generously supported the event and contributed towards its success.

“It was incredible to hear the evening raised over £7,000 for Salisbury Hospice.”
