Maria’s Charity Christmas Dinner Dance
On Saturday, 23rd November, Maria’s Charity Christmas Dinner Dance was held in Crawley. It was a great success and approximately £3,000 was raised in aid of Cancer Research UK and The League of Friends of Crawley Hospitals.
The evening was well attended with special guests including those in the photograph below (left to right): Henry Smith (MP), Janet Lane, Chris Oxlade (MC), Maria Hains, Mr Suleiman (Associate Specialist Surgeon) and Mr Ball (Consultant Surgeon).
Having organised this annual fundraising event for the last 20 years, Maria said this was her last one and she would like to thank all those who have supported her and helped in various ways over the years – the consultants, specialists, nurses, her family, friends and colleagues, guests, Janet Lane who helped organise the event and had travelled from Norfolk, Chris Oxlade MC, Sue Casemore for the hampers, those who donated prizes for the auction and raffle, all the entertainers and the Crowne Plaza for hosting the event.
