Dougie Mac Set To Hold its Annual Ball 2022

Dougie Mac is delighted to be holding its Annual Charity Ball on Friday 17th June 2022 at The King’s Hall in Stoke.

The much-loved event is always a highlight in the hospice’s fundraising calendar. After the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic causing such fundraising events to be cancelled, the 2022 “Mad Hatter’s” themed Ball promises to be a real celebration. 

Donna Adams, Head of Fundraising at Dougie Mac, “We’re so excited to be able to hold our Annual Ball again, this much missed event will be a wonderful boost as we kick start 2022. We’re even more delighted to announce that KMF Group have generously agreed to be our headline sponsors once again, and we’re honoured and grateful for their continued support.”

Gareth Higgins, Managing Director of KMF said, “KMF Group is proud to be sponsoring Dougie Mac’s Annual Ball again. After such a challenging couple of years for everyone, particularly the charity and events sectors, it’s great that fundraising events like this are able to take place again. I’m sure the Ball will be a great success and I hope it raises lots of money for Dougie Mac which is such a well-loved and vital charity that supports so many people across our local community.”

Donna added, “As we’ve not been able to hold many fundraising events over the last couple of years we’re hoping that our Annual Ball will mark a wonderful celebration. The event is always so well supported and we’re really looking forward to welcoming everyone for a fantastic, fun-filled night, whilst raising much-needed funds for Dougie Mac.  Following the amalgamation of The Donna Louise into Dougie Mac we are delighted to be in a position to organise a fundraising event which will help us to ensure that we can continue to deliver 21st century, dynamic hospice care and support for adults, young adults and children.”

Dougie Mac’s Mad Hatter’s Ball will take place at Stoke’s Kings Hall on Friday 17th June 2022.  

Local businesses who would like to reserve a table for the event please do so via our website by Friday 3rd June.
