Dance the night away at PAH ball and help beat liver disease

Charity / Fri 22nd Apr 2022 am30 08:08am

IT’S time to put on your dancing shoes and help to raise funds to support early diagnosis of liver disease for patients at The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT).         

The Liver Ball, organised by the gastroenterology department at PAHT, promises to be a spectacular black tie occasion with a three-course dining experience, disco, and ‘mocktail’ reception, together with a range of raffle prizes to be won. It will be held at The Manor of Groves Hotel, Sawbridgeworth, (CM21 0JU) on Saturday 21 May.

The fantastic prizes include an overnight stay at The Manor of Groves Hotel with dinner and breakfast, photographs signed by players from Arsenal football club, a pair of football boots signed by Paul Gascoigne, former English professional football player, a second pair of football boots signed by Deli Ali, professional footballer for Premier League club Everton and the England national team, a Rolex golf jumper and golfing day, tickets to a Tottenham Hotspur football game, a Benefit Cosmetics gift set and so much more.

The appeal has been led by Dr Deb Ghosh, consultant gastroenterologist, to raise £80,000 for a specialist piece of equipment called a fibroscanner. The fibroscanner would enable a fast, painless and non-invasive examination of the patient’s liver, helping clinicians to detect liver disease and related conditions quickly at the bedside. This would allow the team to start intensive monitoring and support if required.

Dr Ghosh said: “We are extremely grateful to everyone who has supported our appeal for this equipment to transform the care we can provide to patients with liver disease and related conditions so far.

“Diagnosis is the first step and the fibroscanner would help us to ensure that our patients have the best outcomes possible in their treatment.”

I've been to a few of these balls, and they were really good. Should you not be publishing a cost of tickets ?
