THERE’S double delight at Solihull Mayor’s parlour – not only is the Mayor’s Charity Ball returning for the first time since the pandemic but it’s also the platinum jubilee of the Mayoral role in the borough.
The Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Diana Holl-Allen will be hosting the event at Hogarths Hotel in Dorridge on April 19 in aid of her two chosen charities Marie Curie and the British Heart Foundation.
Both charities will have guest speakers at the ball to discuss their vital work.
The Mayor said: “It is wonderful that after a four-year hiatus we are able to hold this fantastic event again.
“Marie Curie and British Heart Foundation are essential charities which continuously help people in need.
“I’m proud to support them and am privileged to hold an event to raise funds for them.”
Rachel Nash, Marie Curie deputy head of fundraising for the Midlands said: “Over the next five years Marie Curie aims to double the number of people across the UK being cared for and supported in homes, its hospices and through our free information and support services so we are very grateful to The Mayor of Solihull for choosing us as one of the charities to benefit from her fundraising efforts in 2024.”
Balvinder Kaur, British Heart Foundation partnership/fundraising manager said: “We are thrilled and deeply honoured to be selected as the Mayor’s Charity for this prestigious Charity Ball.
“This endorsement not only recognises the importance of our mission, but also highlights the collective commitment to making a positive impact on saving lives.
“With one in three people affected with heart disease, the Charity Ball provides a remarkable platform to amplify our cause.
“We are excited to work alongside the Mayor to raise awareness and bring about lasting change through vital pioneering research.
“Together, we can: Stop heart attacks and strokes, cure heart failure and end sudden cardiac death.”
