Butterfly Ball raises £60k for Julia’s House
This year’s Julia’s House Butterfly Ball has raised £60,000 for the Dorset and Wiltshire children’s hospice.
The ball, which was hosted for the first time by Talbot Heath School, in Bournemouth, included an auction, overseen by Julia’s House Chief Executive, Martin Edwards, and a performance by comedienne, actress and Julia’s House patron, Debra Stephenson.
One of the top auction prizes was a walk-on part in the popular television show Doc Martin which was donated by the star of the show and Julia’s House patron, Martin Clunes.
Linda Schofield-Green, Julia’s House Corporate and Events Manager, said: ‘Thank you all, to those who supported this event; to Talbot Heath School, catering companies Holroyd Howe and Co-ordination Catering Hire and our sponsors Amigo Loans, LV= and Poole Audi, not to mention everyone that donated prizes. And of course a big thank you to those who came and had such a good time on the night. We are delighted that this has been our most successful ball to date! It’s worth all the hard work; we can’t wait for next year.’
