Local businesses support BHP Twilight Ball

BHP Chartered Accountants are delighted to have raised over £8,000 for The Chesterfield Royal Macmillan Cancer Centre Appeal at their recent Twilight Ball, bringing the total donation from the firm to over £11,000 across three events.

Held at CASA Hotel Chesterfield, the ball included a three course meal, live music from local band The Fossils, as well as raffle prizes kindly donated by local businesses.

Rob Turner, Senior Fundraising Manager for Macmillan in Chesterfield said, “Being diagnosed with cancer is one of the toughest things that anyone can face and the new NGS Macmillan Unit will give local people the very best in treatment and support – closer to home. Macmillan needs to raise £2.5 million towards the cost of the new centre and we are so grateful to BHP Chartered Accountants for their fantastic support to the Appeal – BHP’s success shows how hard work by businesses who are passionate about their community can make a big difference.”

Dominic Staniforth, Partner at BHP Chartered Accountants commented, “Following our successful (but painful!) leg waxing event, and race night towards the end of last year, I am thrilled that we have been able to donate over £11,000 from these three events to such a great cause. The Ball was a fantastic evening supported by local businesses who have all helped ensure Macmillan are one step closer to reaching their target to complete the new centre.”
