Based in Derbyshire, Cancer Relief Uk are one of the few UK charities who offer fundamental support for cancer sufferers and their families who are experiencing financial hardship. This can be in the form of cash grants to help with travel costs to hospital for treatments, to help with utility bills, clothing due to weight loss/gain, medical equipment and many other issues which arise. We can also help fund treatment and last wishes requests. In addition to this we have two respite facilities where cancer sufferers and their families can take a break from their treatment free of charge. More information about the charity and the work we do can be found on our website www.cancerreliefuk.org . We do not receive any help from outside agencies and have to raise all funding ourselves.
As part of this fundraising initiative and to help raise the profile of the charity we are pleased to announce that former world snooker champion Ken Doherty and John Virgo have agreed to take part in a snooker evening which will be held at Matlock Golf Club on Tuesday 3rd May. The evening starts at 6.30 for a meet and greet and photographs and play starts at 7.30. Ken Doherty plays 8 frames with John Virgo doing commentary and entertainment during the interval (after 4 frames). There is also a buffet included and Ken does a Q&A style talk at the end of the evening which is said to be very entertaining with stories about other players etc. Ticket prices will be £40 for a standard ticket and £80 for a VIP ticket. VIP tickets include a frame against Ken Doherty, seating with the stars and a signed photo.
We are looking for sponsorship to help with the cost of staging the event and packages start at £320. For this we can put your logo/website address on all promotional material, posters and tickets as well as a write up and link on our website, twitter (20K followers) and Facebook and an opportunity to advertise on the night. We will also provide 2 complimentary tickets and photo opportunities with the stars of the evening.
