Prospect Hospice’s popular Full Length and Fabulous charity ball, hosted by singer and entertainer Jonathan Wilkes, is making a welcome return in 2022.
After having to cancel its fundraising ball in 2020 to celebrate its 40th anniversary because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the charity has announced it will be going ahead on Saturday 14 May 2022 at the STEAM Museum, Swindon, at 7pm and tickets are now on sale.
Sheryl Crouch, head of income at Prospect Hospice, said: “We’re really looking forward to holding our charity ball in 2022 after a break of two years and we’d love our supporters to join us. It will be a James Bond themed ball with first-class entertainment, fine dining and a chance to win fabulous prizes in our auction and raffles, including a piece of diamond jewellery donated by Deacons jewellers in Old Town, Swindon.”
Jonathan Wilkes is hosting the ball and will be performing with his band. He is a patron of Prospect Hospice and has hosted the charity’s ball since they began in 2010.
He has played major roles in West End musicals including The Rocky Horror Show, Grease, Tommy and Chicago and performed on television. He and his wife, Nikki, run the Wilkes Academy of Performing Arts in Swindon.
Jonathan said: “I’ve seen first-hand the incredible work Prospect Hospice does after they cared for a member of my family at the end of their life. I’m so proud to support the work they do and help ensure they’re able to care for many more families like mine.
“The Full Length and Fabulous charity balls are wonderful events and I can’t wait to welcome the hospice’s supporters to the ball in 2022.”
Over the years the charity balls have raised more than £200,000 for Prospect Hospice enabling it to provide outstanding care to people at the end of their lives and support for their loved ones.
Sheryl added: “We’ve had businesses and their employees, families and friends of patients cared for by the hospice attending our balls in the past, so if you’re looking for a fantastic night out with colleagues, family or friends you really don’t want to miss our Full Length and Fabulous Ball. You’ll also help make a real difference to the lives of local people needing our care.”
Tickets for the ball are £80 per head or £800 for a table of ten. To book your place email SherylCrouch@prospect-hospice.net or call 01793 816159.
