We’re thrilled to announce our sponsorship of this year’s Kind Hearts Ball. Organised by the Kind Hearts Give Back organisation, it’s a fantastic yearly event that raises money for various cancer charities, including those with a local presence. Last year, over £39,370 was raised in aid of the Yorkshire Cancer Centre, the Teenage Cancer Trust and Cancer Research UK.
Kind Hearts Give Back was founded in 2014 by Victoria Eames, just weeks after her diagnosis of cervical cancer. Victoria’s treatment left her unable to fundraise via physical events such as marathons. Undaunted, she saw an opportunity to combine her desire to fundraise with her expertise in events and entertainment, and the organisation was born.
Our involvement with the 2018 Ball was prompted by one of our own team. Dhiran Mistry is new to our Commercial Property team, having joined Ison Harrison this month.
In January 2010, whilst at university, Dhiran was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Dhiran’s determination saw him resume his studies just 18 months later, qualifying as a solicitor earlier this year.
As a result of helping with the organisation of last year’s Ball, Dhiran was able to tell us all about its origins, the causes it supports and of course what a fantastic evening is in store for those attending.
To start things off this year, there will be performances in an entertainment-led drinks reception. The fun continues through the evening, with plenty of fun and interactive ways to raise money. Attention to detail and production values are paramount, right down to venue dressing.
