Charity Ball in Sir Bobby Robson Suite
Thursday, 13th Jun 2013 12:43
The Margaret Cumberland Memorial Masquerade Ball is being held in the Sir Bobby Robson Suite at Portman Road on Friday 5th July to raise funds for The Woolverstone Wish Fund, which is based at the Oncology department at Ipswich Hospital.
The Woolverstone Wing houses the Chemotherapy Day Unit, the Radiotherapy department and Somersham Ward for acute cancer patients. Their facilities require refurbishment and an extension due to rising capacity and they need to raise £800,000 in total.
Welcome drinks will be served at 7pm in the Legends Suite, followed by a three-course dinner in the Sir Bobby Robson Suite. A professional photographer will be present, as well as a photobooth for fun.
Musical entertainment will come from young saxophone duo Tom Renshaw and Jack Shenton, as well as the Lovely Idreiss and Band 23X. There will also be a silent auction and a raffle.

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
