A few months back I was invited to go to the ball. My aunt & uncle were going, it was to raise money for charity and they wanted me to blog about – of course I said yes.
The Equinox Ball was launched by Sarah & Paul Mullen from Doncaster, after they lost close relatives to cancer. It raised money in support of Firefly and Cancer Research UK. Two amazing cancer charities.
– Survivial rates of cancer have doubled in the past 30 years
– In the 1970s, 1 in 4 children survived cancer, that statistic is now 3 in 4
– Cancer Research UK employ approximately 4000 scientists, doctors and nurses
Sarah and Paul did an outstanding job with the ball. I feel their goal was to create a memorable, emotional and feel-good experience – they did that perfectly.
It was held at The Deaf School in Doncaster. We had a marquee, a three course meal, champagne, an auction and an adequately spacious dance floor!

My calves were aching the following day from so much crazy dancing. Sarah and Paul are making this an annual event, to find out more about next year’s ball like their Facebook page here.
