On July 2nd over 180 guests attended The Sunflower Ball at Rushden and Higham Rugby Club. The event was organised by a small committee of working mums in their "spare" time. Guests were treated to a 3 course dinner and were entertained by a live singer, a band and a disco. Through many generous donations from local companies and individuals, guests were also able to bid on some amazing auction prizes and purchase tickets for a rather large collection of raffle prizes. Over £5500 was raised for the Hospice, and Hospice Events Fundraiser Sarah Denston did a fabulous job of raising awareness of the Hospice's work by giving an informative speech. Sarah (pictured second right) said "Our heartfelt thanks go out to the Sunflower Ball Organising Committee and everyone who supported this wonderful event."
