Jan has organised the Purple Ball of Hope for the last 5 years and has raised over £25,000!
“I promised my mum that I would do something to bring about change for pancreatic cancer. The Purple Ball of Hope was created because she loved watching people dress up and enjoy themselves. All funds raised on the night went to Pancreatic Cancer UK and we held a raffle, live auction, sold cards for our memory tree and asked for donations.
If you are organising a ball don’t be afraid to ask for help. I found local businesses were keen to get involved. Also make sure you enjoy the experience.”
Aretha Franklin’s death from pancreatic cancer triggered painful memories of my own mother’s death. My mum had been ill for a long time but specialists kept saying it wasn’t cancer and initially treated her for diabetes and a host of other things. She died only one day after her formal diagnosis so I am only too aware of the devastating result of this terrible disease.
It felt right to fundraise and raise awareness so I planned a one off musical tribute night in my hometown of Cornwall for the Queen of Soul. It was a mammoth event and over 100 people were involved with the organisation, with singers from all over the South West as well as a 50 strong Gospel Choir performing on the evening. It was a sold out event which I am thrilled to say raised £8,187!
