Variety Gala night
Friday, November 10th at ( 7pm until very late )
Doncaster Fundraiser Phil Johnson is hosting a charity gala event at the Earl of Doncaster in aid of three charities – one of them our hospice appeal. Phil decided to fundraise for the hospice after we cared for his father-in-law last year.
The Variety Gala night includes the best entertainment featuring a variety of quality acts. The evening is hosted by the talented Ricky K ( Britain’s Got Talent Semi Finalist 2014 ) and headlined by Tony as Robbie Williams the UK’s number one tribute artist. This annual event is attended by over 180 people including Phil’s family, friends, colleagues and suppliers from where he works at Dfs Furniture. The night is already sold out and this is the 5th year that Phil has supported a number of local causes and national charities raising over £80,000 to date. The night features a quality auction that has previously included tickets to the finals night at the X Factor. Phil hopes to raise at least £5,000 for the hospice alone.
Parachute for FREE!
If you have ever wanted to do a parachute jump here is your chance. St John’s Hospice is looking for adventurous volunteers to make a fundraising parachute jump and if you raise enough in sponsorship money you will get to jump for free!
There are three types of jump available – an ‘Accelerated FreeFall’ where you can experience the thrill of skydiving solo from up to 12,000 feet, a ‘Tandem Skydive’ from 10,000 feet attached to a professional instructor and a ‘Static Line’ jump which is performed solo from up to 3,000 feet – and you can jump from any one of over twenty British Parachute Association approved airfields across the UK. No experience is necessary as all training is given and if you raise from £395 (depending on the type of jump you choose) you will receive your jump for free.
So if you would like to make a thrilling skydive from 10,000 feet or an exhilarating solo jump from up to 3,000 feet give us a call at the office on 01302 796 666 – we will send you a full information pack and everything you need to take part in the experience of a lifetime.
