Guests at the event on the evening of Saturday 10 October, included Michelle Heaton, Morwenna Banks and Vicki Michelle, who all looked magnificent in glamourous evening dress.
TV favourite Kate Thornton, who hosted the event for the second year, said:
“What an honour to host the Pink Ribbon Ball for the second year in a row, raising vital funds for Breast Cancer Now. It was fantastic night full of amazing acts, a wonderful audience and an incredible atmosphere. What a brilliant way to support such a great cause.”
The evening kicked off with entertainment by the Great Gatsby Girls, followed by Britain’s Got Talent finalists Jack Pack, and a very special performance by Brit-award winning band Bastille, who treated guests to a host of hits in the Grand Hall.
Headline act Bastille said:
“We absolutely loved performing at the Pink Ribbon Ball, hopefully everyone enjoyed the event as much as we did! It was brilliant to see so many people supporting Breast Cancer Now and the vital research the charity funds.”
The Pink Ribbon Ball not only celebrated its 21st Anniversary, but this year also celebrated the launch of the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Now – created earlier this year by the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Proudly supported by Asda’s Tickled Pink, the proceeds from the Pink Ribbon Ball will enable Breast Cancer Now to help save more lives through research.
Fiona Lambert from Asda’s Tickled Pink said:
“It is a real honour for Asda’s Tickled Pink to support this year’s Pink Ribbon Ball. It has been an amazing evening and it was wonderful to see so much money raised to support Breast Cancer Now and their inspirational work to stop breast cancer in its tracks.
"Asda has raised over £16m for breast cancer research since 2005, when Breast Cancer Now, then Breast Cancer Campaign, joined the Tickled Pink partnership. We are extremely proud of the work that our partnership is making possible, and the difference it’s making for all those affected by breast cancer.”
We are pleased to announce that the evening raised a spectacular £465,000 - thank you to everyone who supported the fantastic event.
