Nantwich based landscaping and building merchants, TFC Supplies Ltd, held its inaugural charity ball on Saturday 11th November, raising an incredible £6950.00
The ball was held at Crewe Hall Hotel and was attended by 100 guests, many of whom came from Nantwich and Crewe whilst many more travelled from Staffordshire and beyond.
The funds raised had been intended to support seven-year-old Lewis Crossley from Hough, Crewe, with treatment for T Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. However, following a very courageous two-year battle against his cancer, Lewis tragically passed away a week before the event took place.
Despite the heart-breaking circumstances, Lewis’ parents insisted that the event should go ahead as a celebration of Lewis’ life. All proceeds raised will go directly to the Crossley family.
On arrival at Crewe Hall, the guests were treated to a true red-carpet experience, enjoying a champagne reception in the beautiful Sheridan Suite before proceeding to the Long gallery for the evening’s entertainment.
A three-course dinner was followed by a live auction which was led by Stuart and Dan Hassall of Hassall Brothers Auctioneers. The auction included a collection of unique sporting memorabilia, fine art as well as various dining experiences. A signed 2017 Manchester City shirt, an illustration by Sarah Capper of Doodleicious Art and an original drawing by Simon Tofield, creator of Simon’s Cat were among the top sales of the evening.
The ball closed with a show-stopping performance from Manchester indie group, The RainBand, who had flown in that morning from Milan to generously donate their services to the event.
TFC Supplies General Manager, Rolana Wright said: “Our immense thanks go to every single person who supported this very special evening of fundraising. It’s such a privilege to be able to do something to show our support to the Crossley family.”
The ball was coordinated by TFC Supplies Marketing Communications Manager, Paula Hassall, who said: “We can’t thank everybody who helped make the night possible enough. From the businesses and individuals who so generously donated prizes, through to the band, Crewe Hall and every guest who attended. We hope that this is the first of many such events for TFC Supplies.”
