One of our big-hearted supporters, James Duff, is organising a glamorous ball to help fight back against two devastating diseases – meningitis and cancer.

James, 44, from Glasgow, is a long-time volunteer and fundraiser for us and has already raised £9,000 towards our lifesaving and life-changing work across Scotland. 

He said: “I’d love like-minded people to join me on the night and help support this wonderful charity – it’s a cause close to my heart.”

Know only too well the devastation of meningitis

“My family knows only too well the effects meningitis can have – it was many years ago now that my sister lost her wee boy Kristopher, who was just 1 to meningitis. Although it was a long time ago, you never get over something like that.” 

This year’s ball will also be supporting Beatson Cancer Charity, who are treating James’s best friend and partner Jackie, following a diagnosis of bowel and liver cancer. 

“Let’s make this our best year fundraising yet!” James added. “I can promise everyone who comes along a fantastic evening and the chance to win some great prizes.” 

The ball takes place at The Studio in Hope Street, Glasgow on Saturday 12 May, starting at 7.30pm. It costs £50 per ticket or £45 per person for tables of eight to ten.
