This Saturday’s Wight Brainy Bunch ‘Monster Mash Masquerade Ball’ looks set to be a spectacularly spooky fundraising evening.
The event, the Wight Brainy Bunch’s second black tie ball after its hugely successful charity ball last year, will take place at Ryde Castle on the Isle of Wight with the aim to raise money for brain tumour patients and their families.
Novum Law is proud to be one of the main sponsors of the ball which promises to be a great night of Halloween inspired entertainment featuring live music from talented local bands including: ‘Switch’, ‘Lucid’ and ‘Sebotage’.
Guests will be treated to a champagne reception, a delicious two course sit down meal and have been warned in advance to be prepared for the odd, spooky trick or treat!
The Wight Brainy Bunch was set up by husband and wife team Mark and Kathryn Grimes after Mark was diagnosed with a brain tumour in February 2015. Following Mark’s diagnosis, they realised that very little funding is received for research into brain tumours and decided to raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity, Smile4Wessex and The Fire Fighters Charity, who supported Mark, a serving fire fighter, during his recovery.
Since the charity’s launch, Mark and Kathryn have raised significant amounts of money for people living with brain tumours and other serious neurological conditions. Just last week at a ball organised by Smile4Wessex to raise funds for the Wessex Neurological Centre, they presented a huge cheque for £6,000 to enable the centre to enhance its specialist facilities and services.
The Wessex Neurological Centre does incredible work providing acute and specialist care to a population of approximately three million people from the Isle of Wight and across the South Coast, not only for brain tumours but conditions such as stroke, brain haemorrhage, motor neurone disease and dementia.
Joining Novum Law’s table will be the fantastic team from the new Island Rehabilitation Practice, an organisation dedicated to offering specialist neurological rehabilitation services, based on the Isle of Wight.
