The Shropshire Club has raised more than £63,000 for us through its annual ball.

The black-tie ball, which was held for the first time since Covid, was held at Tern Hill Hotel and more than 130 people attended for an evening of entertainment and auction, which was led by celebrity auctioneer Jeremy Lamond.

“It was an absolutely tremendous event and was amazing to see so many people turn out for our ball and help raise such an amazing amount of money,” says Mark Charman, the club’s chairman.

“It was great to be back and raising money for Hope House, but to raise the amount we did really is fantastic.”

Over the years The Shropshire Club has raised more than £500,000 to help support seriously ill local children and their families.

“The club is proud of its relationship with Hope House and we are glad that we can continue to raise money which makes a huge difference in our community,” said Mark.

The charity’s chief executive, Andy Goldsmith, said: “It was a superb evening all round and really heart-warming to see the level of support from our community.

“We are extremely grateful to the Shropshire Club who raise incredible amounts of money every year through events like this to support seriously ill local children.

“A massive thank you to the members of the Shropshire Club, their families, and supporters for being here for Hope House Children’s Hospices and the children we care for.”
