The team at Novum Law, the specialist personal injury and medical negligence law firm based in Newport, had the opportunity to get dressed up in their finest last weekend (Saturday 3rd September) to attend the ‘Blue Light Black Tie Ball’ in aid of Smile4Wessex, The Brain Tumour Charity and the Fire Fighters Charity.
Novum Law was a proud sponsor of this fantastic fundraising event which welcomed over 140 people to the Ryde Castle Hotel on the Isle of Wight for a champagne reception, delicious two course meal and first-class entertainment.
The assembled guests enjoyed performances from the NHS Nightingales Choir and an acoustic set from Claydon Connor before dancing the night away to music from two brilliant local, Island bands, ‘Switch’ and ‘The Mix’, all for three very worthy causes.
Smile4Wessex (The Wessex Neurological Centre) is one of the largest and most highly respected neurological centres in the UK. It provides acute and specialist care to people throughout the Isle of Wight and across the South Coast with a wide range of neurological conditions such as brain tumours, brain haemorrhage, stroke, motor neurone disease and dementia.
The Brain Tumour Charity is at the forefront of the fight to defeat brain tumours, making a difference to the lives of people with a brain tumour and their families. It works to fund much-needed research, aid early diagnosis and improve the care and quality of life
The Fire Fighters’ Charity is the UK’s leading provider of services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired fire fighters, fire personnel and their families.
The evening was a chance to celebrate the work of the three charities, have fun and raise funds so that they can continue to do their fantastic work.
Novum Law director Darren O’Sullivan said: “We are delighted to report that nearly £4,000 was raised on the night. Generous guests dug deep and took part in a raffle packed with wonderful prizes, including a holiday for two. This incredible fundraising amount will make a big difference to all three charities. Congratulations and well done to everyone involved in this wonderful event!”
