A Poem from Paul Moore

Cancer, its a word and disease that can be so cruel,

If you decide to ignore it then you’re a bigger fool,

It can happen in your bowel, it can happen in your breast,

Don’t leave till the last minute, go and have a test.

Catch it early and more chance to survive,

Choose to ignore and you won’t be alive,

Copy this poem to show that you care,

At the end of the day it’s a life that we all share.

Our Fantastic Christmas Ball

We are holding our first annual Christmas Celebration Ball on the 30-11-12 at the Copthorne Hotel, Merry Hill.

We aim to give you the best nights entertainment you could wish for including a DJ, Live band, Comedian and a fantastic 2 course Christmas dinner.

We have managed with the help of the Copthorne Hotel to reduce their standard rates to just £18 per adult and £13 per child (under 12)

Your evening begins with a complimentary glass of Prosecco for the adults and a fruit juice for the children.

You will then sit down to your dinner while our DJ serenades you with timeless songs both old and new. When dinner is finished our live band Got the T Shirt will perform and I can guarantee you will be dancing . We will have a little bit of comedy and then back to the disco for you to kick your shoes off and dance the night away.

We will also have a silent memorabilia auction going on throughout the night for you to bid on some truly remarkable items.

Your Menu is……

  • Main course
    • Breast of chicken on a turkey, sage and onion  farce with apricots, seasonal vegetables, baby roast herb and garlic potatoes and cranberry jus
    • Or
    • Vegetable Wellington on a bed of creamed leeks, served with seasonal vegetables and spiced tomato coulis
    • To finish
      • White chocolate panna cotta with apple and cinnamon compote, finished with toasted almonds

There are also rooms available to be pre booked at £67.00 for a twin/double room with £10 supplementary charge per child

Jaki Graham

We are very pleased to welcome Our newest Ambassador Jaki Graham into the Charity and hope that she will help us to raise more awareness nationwide

When agreeing to join us Jaki said….

‘Balls To Cancer is a great charity that’s gone on to help raise awareness of male cancer across the UK and highlight just how serious an issue this actually is. I was amazed when I heard the statistics of exactly how much of a killer this has become amongst men. A lot of men can be very proud and don’t feel the need to check for lumps or think ‘it’ll never happen to me’ but a quick, simple check can make all the difference between catching testicular cancer early enough to save a life! Just like women and breast cancer, this is no different and as a female ambassador it’s just as important that us ladies encourage our boyfriends, husbands and even sons to keep on top of their health. I’m honoured to be appointed the first female Ambassador for Balls To Cancer and hopefully helping to encourage others to make that first and important step to looking after their loved ones.’

Jaki we look forward to seeing you very soon
