Emeralds & Ivy 2020 has been cancelled

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and current Government guidance, we have had to cancel this year's Emerald's and Ivy Ball which was due to take place on Saturday 12 December 2020. 

Despite the cancellation of the event, we still need your support to keep our Cancer Awareness Roadshow activity on the road.

Our roadshow nurses talk to people about cancer screening, making healthy changes and contacting their GP with any health concerns. With COVID-19 causing disruption to cance services across the UK, it's more important than ever before for our nurses to be on the ground supporting the public to reduce their cancer risk and improve their chances of spotting the disease early, when it's easier to treat. 

Please donate what you can to help us continue this life-saving work throughout the pandemic and beyond. 

We hope to be back again in December 2021 for the return of this fabulous event. To be kept up to date with the latest news, please email megan.hope@cancer.org.uk

Guests enjoyed a Pol Roger champagne reception, the opportunity to donate to our fundraising tree in return for brilliant prizes, a three-course meal and celebrity musical performances. Guests also had the opportunity to bid for money can’t buy prizes in our live and silent auctions.

The ball raised a staggering £1million on the night thanks to our generous supporters and partners, which directly supports funding our Cancer Awareness Roadshow and hubs.
